The KFC Yum! Center has implemented VenueShield, ASM Global’s proprietary program for venue re-openings, to ensure that facilities are clean and certified at the highest standards for the safety and health of our co-workers, clients and guests.

Why VenueShield?
COVID-19 is forcing facility operators around the globe to rethink operations and management protocols. As the premier steward of more than 300 legendary venues across the world, ASM Global will be leading the industry with a comprehensive best-in-class reopening program.

The KFC Yum! Center encourages and recommends guests wear a face covering to help fight the spread of the Delta variant. Certain events may require face coverings and physical distancing; therefore, specific Covid-19 policies may be adjusted and will be announced prior to each event.

Throughout the KFC Yum! Center, non-contact hand sanitizer dispensers have been placed. Although nothing replaces washing our hands with soap and water, these hand sanitizer dispensers have been placed for the convenience of all who attend events at the KFC Yum! Center.
