In an effort to enhance fan safety, and to mirror many arenas and venues around the county, we have implemented a clear bag policy for all large attendee events effective immediately.

We define a clear bag as a fully clear or colored clear plastic, vinyl, or mesh bag. One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags will be considered an acceptable clear bag. The maximum bag size that will be allowed is 15” X 15”x 5“. In addition to a clear bag, guests may bring in one small clutch up to 5” X 7”x 2” in size.

Due to clear hydration packs not being readily available, EMPTY hydration packs WILL BE the only exception to the clear bag policy.

Last, but not least! Please note that management reserves the right, without a refund of any portion of the ticket purchase price, to refuse admission to or eject any person whose conduct is deemed by management to be disorderly, who uses vulgar or abusive language, or who fails to comply with these or other rules as set forth by the management. Patrons who are clearly intoxicated or under the influence will not be admitted.
