If you are planning on attending Saturday’s football game between North Carolina and Louisville at Kenan Stadium, be advised. In an effort to reduce wait times entering the stadium, UNC is implementing a clear bag policy for fans attending home games for the remainder of the season.
According to a release issued by the university on Tuesday, the only items that will be allowed through the games are:
- Clear plastic or vinyl bags no larger than 12” x 6” x 12” (including gallon freezer bags);
- Small clutch purses no larger than 4½” x 6½”;
- Necessary medical items following inspection at gate.
Fans will still allowed to carry items such as phones, binoculars, blankets and cameras into the stadium.
Among the items not allowed are, but not limited to, purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, diaper bags, fanny packs, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags.
“The safety of our fans is our top priority on game day,” UNC police chief Jeff McCracken said in a statement. “Implementing this policy will allow our security staff to screen bags more effectively and to ensure a safer game day experience for all visitors to Kenan Stadium.”
