Wings Stadium increases security this weekend

Wings Stadium, which is also home to "The Annex" and "The Cube," announces that the complex has increased their security level for all events this weekend, which include Kalamazoo Wings hockey on Friday and Kalamazoo Xplosion football on Saturday.

With the recent events on the campus of Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Virginia and in the wake of threats at Kalamazoo Valley Community College, the Wings Stadium Complex deems it necessary to raise the security level.

With the raise in security level, patrons this weekend maybe subject to physical searches and inspection of bags/purses.

“With the tragedy in Virginia coupled the threat of violence in our own community, we feel it is our obligation to our patrons to ensure the safest environment possible,” said Kalamazoo GM Paul Pickard. “Our goal is for every patron to have the ultimate experience and that starts with their safety."

Fans coming either the K-Wings or Xplosion games this weekend are encouraged to allow extra time to enter the facility.

“We take our patrons safety very seriously at all events, due to the recent circumstances we are heightening our security,” said security supervisor Thomas Flynn. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our patrons, but your safety is our top priority.”
