St. Louis CITY SC Making CITYPARK’s Security Screening Faster with Evolv Partnership


Old-school metal detectors are out and accelerated security screening is in. Visitors entering CITYPARK on matchdays experience a quick, fan-friendly security checkpoint thanks to a partnership between St. Louis CITY SC and AI-based, weapons-detection security screening leader Evolv.

CITY SC has deployed Evolv’s state-of-the-art Evolv Express® screening solution at the entrances to its 22,500-seat, next-generation stadium CITYPARK. With Evolv, fans – whether they’re by themselves or part of a large group – pass through the CITYPARK gates without always having to empty pockets or remove bags.

“CITYPARK was designed with technology, innovation, and the fan experience at the top of mind,” said Matt Sebek, St. Louis CITY SC’s Chief Experience Officer. “We set out to bring our fans a seamless matchday experience, which starts with getting them into our stadium quickly and safely with Evolv.”

Evolv Express screens 4,000 people per hour – 10 times faster than metal detectors.

“Evolv is excited to begin this journey with St. Louis CITY SC,” said John Baier, Evolv’s Vice President of Sports. “Just as Evolv sets the tone for a great fan experience for fans right at the gate, CITY SC is sending a message to its fans right from its inaugural season that they care about fan safety as much as they do about fan experience.”

Evolv is the fan screening provider for almost a third of the U.S. teams in Major League Soccer.
