CLEAR BAG POLICY FAQ

Frequently asked questions about the clear bag policy:
How does this policy improve public safety?
The clear bag is easily and quickly searched and greatly reduces faulty bag searches. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something. Say Something” campaign.

How is this policy more convenient for fans?
Clear bags will enable security to move fans through check points much faster than in the past. A standard size bag eliminates the need for bag templates to check bag sizes. Clear bags will allow staff to be more effcient and effective in keeping you safe by preventing dangerous items from entering the stadium.

How many bags can each person bring into the stadium?
One large clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or the 12” x 6” x 12” clear bag – plus a small clutch. The larger clear bag must be a standard 12” x 6” x 12” made of CLEAR PVC vinyl and visually searchable. The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items and is also easily searched.

Can smartphones, tablets, binoculars, or cameras be carried SEPARATELY from what they put in the clear bag?
Yes. Phones, cameras or binoculars can be carried in by hand.

Are seat cushions, seat back chairs still allowed?
Yes. These are allowed.

What if a fan shows up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted?
Fans will not be allowed to enter a venue with a non-conforming bag. Fans will be asked to return items to their vehicle or purchase a clear bag from a vendor on Langford Green (south end of stadium).

What about diaper bags?
Diapers must be carried in a clear bag.

If I have special medical equipment that I need with me at all times, where do I put that?
An exception will be made for medical necessary items after proper inspection at a specified gate. At Doak Campbell Stadium, these items must be cleared at GATE C.
