We offer our visitors a limited storage capactity for their luggage which exceeds the allowed size limit. This service is available for a fee of 2€. The fee is charged to cover the cost for this service only. Any potential revenue that exceeds the cost of this service will be donated.
Being aware of the increased need of safety we try to provide for our visitors, performing artists and promoters the best possible safety in the Barclaycard Arena. Therefore we installed metall detecting devices in 2016 which are used at every entrance.
To allow a quick and safe entrance to the Barclaycard Arena we ask our visitors to bring only an absolut minimum with them, e.g. cell phone, keys, wallet or small bags/cosmetic bags.
