Clear Bag Policy

To continue providing a safe environment for our guests and our staff as well as significantly accelerate entry into the arena, the Budweiser Events Center has implemented a policy limiting the type of bag and dimensions of those bags brought into the venue. Exclusions to this policy will be made for medically necessary items after a thorough inspection.

While guests are encouraged to not bring any type of bags to the venue to expedite the entry process, they will be able to enter the Budweiser Events Center with the following style and size bag:

• Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” W x 12” H x 6” D
• One-gallon clear plastic bags (Ziplock or similar) are permitted
• One (1) personal item such as a small clutch or wallet not exceeding 4.5” x 6.5” in size may be brought into the arena
• Guests are allowed one (1) large clear bag – either the 12” W x 12” H x 6” D clear bag or one-gallon Ziploc style bag – plus one (1) small personal item

Prohibited items include but are not limited to: purses larger than a small clutch bag, briefcases, backpacks, computer bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

How does the new policy improve public safety?

Clear bags are more easily searched, significantly reduce faulty bag searches, and supports the Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign. This effort also allows for minimal physical contact during the screening process.

How many bags may each person bring into the arena?

One large clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or the 12″ x 6″ x 12″ clear bag – plus a small clutch that does not exceed 4.5″ x 6.5″. The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items and is also easily searched.

What about diaper bags?

Diapers and non-medically necessary items for babies and young children must be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, would be allowed to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse into the venue.

If I have certain items that I need to bring into the arena for medical reasons and they won’t fit in the clear bag, what do I do?

Exclusions to the clear bag policy will be made for medically necessary items after a through inspection.   


Are all purses prohibited?

No. Small clutch purses, with or without a handle or strap, that do not exceed 4.5" x 6.5" are permitted along with either the 12" x 6" x 12" clear tote bag or the one-gallon freezer bag. Fans are encouraged not to bring any bags, but the policy has been created to balance fan needs with improved public safety and convenience.

Are other events limiting bags?

Yes. The NFL, NBA, NHL and other organizations have previously implemented a clear bag policy. Additionally, some venues do not permit any bags to be brought inside the venue.
