LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- On Monday, Sept. 13, a full slate of fans will be allowed to enter Allegiant Stadium for a Raiders home game.

The new stadium brings new protocol that fans should get familiar with before heading to the "Death Star." Here's everything you need to know.

HOW TO GET TO THE GAME

Parking lots at Allegiant Stadium open four hours before kickoff. There is no lining up to enter the parking lots prior to one hour before the parking gates open.

Parking lots close one hour after the conclusion of the game.

If you are parking elsewhere and walking to the game, the best way to do so is via the Hacienda Bridge from Las Vegas Boulevard. The area will be shut down to car traffic on game days to allow fans to walk safely across.

If you plan on taking a rideshare to the game, there are two east rideshare lots where a driver can drop you off. Once dropped off, follow the marked walking paths to Allegiant Stadium. 

Nevada Highway Patrol urged rideshare drivers to use designated drop off sites near Allegiant Stadium. NHP said rideshare drivers cannot drop off customers on the freeway shoulder, and drivers will be subject to a citation if they do so.

The Regional Transportation Commission launched Game Day Express to shuttle Raiders fans to games. For $4 round trip per person, RTC will shuttle fans from five Las Vegas Valley locations to Allegiant Stadium.

VACCINE VERIFICATION

All fans are required to be vaccinated at Allegiant Stadium for Raiders home games this season.

The Raiders will require vaccinations for attendance to home games at Allegiant Stadium.

To attend, fans must upload their vaccination information to the CLEAR App on a smart phone. Similar to digital tickets, fans will be able to scan in the verify vaccination status and enter the game.

If you can't use the CLEAR App for any reason, the Raiders will host alternate vaccine verification near Lot B at Allegiant Stadium.

Fans who have not yet gotten the vaccine can opt to get the first dose on site. However, because they are not fully vaccinated, those fans will be required to wear masks. Fully-vaccinated Raiders fans will not have to wear masks during the game.

Alternate screening tents were opened throughout the weekend preceding Monday's home opener to avoid delays at entry for ticketholders; specifically, ticketholders who had trouble being verified through the Clear app, like those only partially vaccinated.

People lined up hours before the prescreening tent was open to ticketholders at 1 p.m.

One man said that the Raiders' vaccination protocol inspired him to get the shots, but because he was vaccinated so recently, he had to attend the alternate screening tent.

"The day that they announced that we had to be fully vaccinated, two days later I got my first vaccine," said the ticketholder. "I'm a big Raiders fan so, I couldn't miss this, so, it kind of sucked that it, it was very, like, late notice. So that's why I'm here today."

BAG POLICY

Like many large venues nowadays, the Raiders and Allegiant Stadium are putting limits on what kind of bags you can bring inside the venue.

Going to a Raiders game at Allegiant Stadium? Here's what you need to know if you plan to bring a bag with you.

The Raiders will allow for clear backpacks and fanny packs to store your necessities. The stadium will also allow a small clutch bag that isn't clear, but it can't be bigger than 4 x 6 inches.

If you bring a bag that isn't allowed inside the stadium, Allegiant security offers a bag check for $20. Security will hold the bag for you until the end of the game.

WHAT YOU CAN'T BRING

There's a lot of items you cannot bring inside Allegiant Stadium to enjoy a game.

Bottles, cans, and weapons of any kind, including sharp objects, are not allowed inside. This also includes mace and laser pointers.

Electronics like GoPros, drones, laptops and tablets aren't allowed. Neither are bikes and scooters. Animals that aren't certified as service animals will also not be allowed.

CASHLESS STADIUM

Allegiant Stadium is a completely cashless venue, allowing for payment via debit or credit card or mobile wallets including Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay. Cash is not accepted for parking, retail or concessions within Allegiant Stadium.

For fans that do bring cash, there are many cash-to-card kiosks located throughout the stadium. The locations can be found here.
