BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Before the Buffalo Sabres take the ice on Thursday, fans will have to go through additional security hoops.
Officials announced additional security measures on Wednesday, encouraging fans to show up early to Thursday’s highly-anticipated game.
The new measures include walk-through magnetometers at all entrances. In order to pass through the metal detectors, all fans will need to remove cameras and phones and put them on a security table before being admitted access.
Unlike metal detectors at airports, fans won’t need to remove shoes or belts, however First Niagara Center Officials asked guests to bring only what they’ll need to watch the game to the First Niagara Center.
