Gillette Stadium Delivers Game-Changing, Frictionless Security Ingress

Fans who attend NFL and MLS games and concerts at Gillette Stadium have high expectations, and the team at Gillette take the safety of their venue goers very seriously. For security screening, the team previously employed walkthrough magnetometers at its 10 public and 4 premium entrances (around 560 systems). But even with a large number of magnetometers in use, lines would form in front of the entrances—forcing fans to wait 10 to 15 minutes to get into the stadium.

“In addition to the wait to get into the stadium, a significant number of false alarms forced many fans to go through secondary security checks
where they would need to divest their personal effects,” says Mike Loynd, the VP of Strategic Initiatives at Kraft Sports & Entertainment. “It was an uncomfortable process and created a lot of friction.” Then they heard about Evolv Technology - “Evolv met all our ‘must-have’ requirements related to operations, efficiency, and security.” Since implementing Evolv Express®, Gillette Stadium was able to achieve the following and more:  

  • Replaced around 560 metal detectors with 14 Express systems
  • Eliminated 15-minute security queues
  • Granular analytics for greater efficiency and security effectiveness
