Some handy hints to avoid missing a minute this round

1. Arrive Early

Security measures will have an impact on the time taken to admit patrons to the stadium. Please allow extra time and don't leave your arrival until the last minute. 

2. Be Patient

Security inspections take time, so please understand it will take a little longer to move people into the stadium. 

3. Limit the number of bags you bring

Each bag will be inspected, so the more you bring the longer it will take. 

4. Co-operate with staff

Security and event staff are doing an important job, so please help them by co-operating at all times.
