We strongly encourage fans to not bring any type of bags, but outline what is permissible. Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:

Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap, may be carried into the stadium along with one of the clear bag options.

There are no provisions to check items at the gates or in the stadium. Fans will be asked to either take prohibited items back to their car, or dispose of prohibited items at the entrance of the stadium. The TaxSlayer Bowl and the stadium are NOT responsible for items left behind, lost, stolen, or damaged. Possession of prohibited items is grounds for ejection from the stadium.
