Stadium Information

About Chesapeake Energy Arena:

Opening in 2002, this stadium was originally built for concerts, minor league hockey, and arena football in an attempt to bring a professional basketball team to the city. While temporarily hosting the New Orleans franchise after Hurricane Katrina, they did not get their team permanently until 2008.

Tour Info:

There doesn't appear to be any public tour offerings at this time.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

All bags larger than 14"x14"x6" such as backpacks, suitcases, beach bags, etc. will be prohibited from entry into the arena.  All bags are subject to inspection before entry.

Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.
