Penn State Athletics Updates Clear Bag Policy

Penn State Athletics has updated its clear bag policy for all athletic venues during the 2022-23 season, which allows fans to bring larger bags to games, the department announced last week.

“In an effort to make the clear bag policy more fan friendly, and to align with policies in place for large events around the country, the size of allowed bags has increased,” Athletics said in a release.

Now, fans will be allowed to bring “clear tote bags” that are 12″ x 6″ x 12″ or smaller. Fans can also bring a non-clear purse that is 4″ x 6″ x 1″ or smaller, too. Along with their bag, fans can still bring loose items such as blankets, cameras (but no camera bag), binoculars, and seat cushions that don’t have pockets.

People without bags will be able to bypass the bag and article check stations while entering the venues.

For fans with babies, the department will allow for infants to be brought in a “soft baby carrier or a sling,” while rigid frame baby carriers aren’t permitted. Strollers will still be permitted in all athletic venues besides Beaver Stadium.

The bag restrictions only apply to Beaver Stadium, the Bryce Jordan Center, Pegula Ice Arena, Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, and Rec Hall. All other venues won’t have any restrictions, but Athletics said that bags may be subject to search upon entering the facility.
