LEXINGTON – Fans who plan to attend the 2014 Final Four at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, will face a safety policy implemented by NFL stadiums when entering the stadium.
Prior to the start of the 2013 NFL season, AT&T Stadium and the Dallas Cowboys announced a game day safety policy that will be in effect for the Final Four.
According to a news release, the policy affects restrictions on the size of bags that are permitted into AT&T Stadium – not the items that you normally need to bring to a game. Each fan may carry in their pocket items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets, and credit cards, and may also continue to carry a blanket or jacket into the stadium.
AT&T Stadium security strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags into the stadium, the news release said.
However, certain bags are permissible and those exceptions are listed below. 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:
– Fans may carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
-Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12 inches by 6 inches and 12 inches or
-A one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
An exception will be made for medically necessary items, including seat cushions, after proper inspection at Gates 1, 5 & 7 designated for this purpose.
-Diapers and wipes must be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.
