Cincinnati Athletics Introduces Clear Bag Policy for All Venues

May 11, 2022

The University of Cincinnati Athletics Department recently announced it will initiate a clear bag policy for all events, including football games at Nippert Stadium and all events at Fifth Third Arena, effective immediately.

The policy will be in effect for high school graduations starting May 11.

The policy will be similar to those already in place at other venues across the city, including at Paul Brown Stadium and TQL Stadium, and enhance the public safety presence at Nippert Stadium and Fifth Third Arena.

Cincinnati Athletics Clear Bag Policy

Fans will be able to bring one clear bag — either a one-gallon Ziploc-style bag or a clear bag tote no larger than 12" x 6" x 12" — AND a small clutch bag or wallet that is roughly the size of a hand (no larger than 4.5" x 6.5") into Nippert Stadium or Fifth Third Arena.

This policy will allow entry gates to move more efficiently on game days.

Non-approved bags include backpacks, camera cases, oversized purses and other large bags.

A full list of approved bags and non-approved can be found here.
