Clear Bag Policy

Georgia Tech Athletic Association - Clear Bag Policy

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into Georgia Tech Athletic Association facilities, the GTAA will implement a policy beginning with the 2018-2019 academic year that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums/arenas. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a 4.5" x 6.5" clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, grocery bags, cinch bags, non-approved chair backs and seat cushions**, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:

  • Tote bags that are clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12"
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar), AND/OR
  • Small clutch bags with or without a handle or strap, no larger than 4.5" x 6.5" (approximately the size of a hand), can be taken into the stadium along with one of the clear plastic bag options

For the 2018 football season, GTAA will provide a complimentary bag check on the exterior of Bobby Dodd Stadium for those who do not comply with stadium policy and are not in proximity to their vehicle.

*An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate by respective gate supervisor.

**Non-approved chair backs/seat cushions include large traditional seat cushions that have pockets, zippers, compartments, or covers. Please see your respective gate supervisor to have your seat cushion examined.
