LSU Athletics enforces a clear bag policy due to it being a conference-wide policy for the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The policy is intended to maintain the safety and security of athletic venues while decreasing the wait time for fans to enter the respective venue.
Yes, all SEC members adhere to the clear bag policy, and many teams across the country in both collegiate and professional sports have adopted variations of the policy as well.
A clear bag policy allows for non-clear bags to be easily identifiable to law enforcement personnel inside and around the stadium. The policy also allows security personnel to be more efficient in the screening of all items entering the stadium.
The following bags are permissible following a brief screening at all LSU Athletic venues:
- Small clear or non-clear wristlets/clutches/wallets measuring smaller than 4.5" x 6.5" (approximately the size of a person’s hand)
- 1-gallon clear, re-sealable freezer bags
- Clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags measuring smaller than 12" x 6" x 12"
"Geaux Clear" (clear bag policy) applies to all LSU Athletic events both ticketed and non-ticketed.
- Clear bags measuring larger than 12" x 6"
- Non-clear wristlets/clutches/wallets/bags measuring larger than 4.5" x 6.5"
