    Clear Bag Practice

    For quickest entry into our venues, we strongly recommend that you do not bring a bag on event day. If a bag is necessary, the bag must meet the following criteria in order to enter the stadium/venue:

    Bags must be CLEAR plastic, vinyl or PVC and not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”. Bags cannot be tinted with color or include oversized content that prevents visibility into the clear bag. Clear book bags are acceptable for use as diaper bags for adults who have infants or toddlers. Small, pocket-sized wallets are allowable in a clear bag

    Any type of non-clear bag will not be permitted. Exceptions will only be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection by security personnel. Please ask for assistance at the gate.

    Guests with non-complying bags can store their items in their car and return to the gate for entry.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    What happens if I show up at the facility entrances with a bag that is not permitted?
    Prohibited bags will be turned away from the facility before they reach the entrance. There is no bag check so bags will need to be returned to your vehicle, out of plain sight.

    Can I place my non-clear bag inside of a clear bag?
    No. If a non-clear bag is placed inside of a clear bag, it will not be allowed in the venue. Small, pocket-sized wallets are allowable.

    Is a tinted, but “see through” bag allowed, if it meets the size restriction?
    No. Color tinted bags do not comply with the Clear Bag Policy.

    Can patrons carry cameras, smart phones or other approved items separately from what they put in a clear bag?
    Yes. Phones and cameras can be carried into the facility so long as it is not in its own bag.

    Are diaper bags permitted?
    Diapers and wipes can be carried in approved clear bags, however non-clear diaper bags are not permitted. Persons with infants and toddlers may utilize a clear book bag as a diaper bag.

    If I have certain items that I need to bring into the stadium for medical reasons and they won’t fit in the clear bag, what do I do?
    Medical bags do not have to be clear. Patrons with medical bags that do not fit within the stadium bag policy may enter at any facility entrance. Medical bags will be searched.

    Additional questions should be directed to HCS Coordinator of Athletics or your school Athletic Director.
