STARKVILLE, Miss. (WHLT) — Mississippi State University is implementing a new clear bag policy for the upcoming football season.
The new policy takes effect on September 3.
Only clear tote bags that do not exceed 12″ x 6″” x 12″ or one-gallon plastic freezer bags will be allowed inside Davis Wade Stadium.
Small handheld clutch purses no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″ will be permitted.
Guests will be able to carry other items allowed into the stadium such as binoculars, cameras, and smartphones, but their cases will not be permitted. Each ticketed fan will be allowed to bring only one clear bag into the venue and a small clutch.
Officials said the policy is a new measure to try to enhance fan safety.
