SEATTLE — Swifties preparing for Taylor Swift’s shows in Seattle on July 22-23 should acquaint themselves with the rules for Lumen Field.
The stadium has a guide that includes information regarding prohibited items, its bag policy and forms of payment accepted.
Lumen Field is a cashless venue and only accepts cards and contactless payments for concessions, retail, parking and vendors.
There are 10 cash-to-card kiosks around the venue that convert cash onto a prepaid card that can be used inside of the stadium and anywhere outside Lumen Field that accepts major credit cards. The prepaid cards can be loaded with any amount from $1 to $500 and do not have transaction fees.
