Enhanced security measures remain in effect at West Point and at Michie Stadium access points for all home football games. Please be reminded that individuals 16 years of age and older must present a valid ID to enter West Point and carry identification with them at all times. All fans entering the stadium will encounter security checks and are subject to search. We strongly encourage all fans to arrive as early as possible to avoid delays.

All fans purchasing alcohol must show a valid ID. Alcoholic beverages may not be brought into the stadium. No alcohol is permitted to leave the club or suite areas. Responsible drinking is permitted in all tailgating lots, as well as Black Knights Alley. Beer can be purchased outside of Michie Stadium at the Beer Tent, located outside of Gate 1. Persons guilty of drunkenness or providing alcohol to minors will be ejected.

Event-related banners and signs are permitted, providing they are in good taste as determined by the Army Athletic Association. Signs may not be hung or displayed on the stadium structure, playing fields, or held in any way that obstructs stadium signage or a fan’s view. Signs on sticks or poles will not be permitted.

Army promotes good sportsmanship and a safe environment for all fans. In order to keep Army Football games as enjoyable as possible, we ask that you respect others around you at all times. If a ticket holder’s conduct endangers or disrupts players, coaches, officials, or other patrons, the Army Athletic Association reserves the right to remove the ticket holder from the premises.

ID bracelets for children are available at the Guest Services booths throughout the stadium (Gates 1, 3, 6A and 7).
