SMU making important change with Ford Stadium

SMU making important change to items approved for carrying into Ford Stadium

New clear bag policy to support fan safety, faster admission at gates

Fans headed to Gerald J. Ford Stadium for Mustang football in coming weeks need to know that a new safety policy will restrict items that may be carried into the stadium.

The only bags permitted (see chart below) will be those made of clear plastic, vinyl or PVC which do not exceed 12-by-6-by-12 inches, one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc or similar), or small clutch bags (about the size of a hand) with or without a strap.  The clutch does not have to be clear and may be carried separately or within an approved plastic bag.

SMU’s gameday policy is modeled after that pioneered by the National Football League and in place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington and all other NFL stadiums. Other universities, such as Penn State and Rutgers, have made similar changes to their policies to embrace what the Department of Homeland Security considers a “best practice.”
