New Bag Policy for SMU Home Football Games

SMU football fans will have to adhere to a new bag policy when attending home games in Dallas.

As of the 2015 college football season, all bags brought into Gerald J. Ford Stadium must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC.

The bags may not exceed 12 x 6 x 12 inches in size.

A one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag is allowed.

Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, will be permitted.

The following items are prohibited from entering Ford Stadium:

  • Purses
  • Coolers
  • Briefcases
  • Backpacks
  • Computer and Camera Bags
  • Cinch Bags
  • Diaper Bags
  • Fanny Packs
  • Luggage of any kind
  • Seat cushions that have zippers, pockets, or compartments
  • Outside food or drink (one sealed bottle of water permitted)
  • Umbrellas
  • Laser pointers
