Kennesaw State implements strict clear bag policy for 2017 football season

A strict, clear bag policy will be in enforced at Fifth Third Bank Stadium for football games this season, Kennesaw State announced on Wednesday.

Although some small bags are allowed, the Kennesaw State Athletic Association urged fans to not bring any bag into the stadium.

Small clutches without a handle or strap that are not larger than 4.5” x 6.5” are allowed. 

One gallon plastic freezer bags and clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags that are not larger than 12” x 6" x 12” are also allowed.

One of the approved bags will be permitted per attendee. 

Kennesaw State will make an exception for medically necessary items after inspection at the gate upon entry.

Details regarding the purpose of the policy, what type of bag is allowed in the stadium and what items are permissible can be found on Kennesaw State’s official website.

Kennesaw State season-ticket holders will receive an approved clear bag later this month along with season football tickets.

Approved bags are available for purchase at the Kennesaw State Bookstore and online.
