Clear Bag Policy
Q: Why did the Wrangler NFR adopt a clear bag policy?
A: In order to enhance public safety and make venue access more efficient, the Wrangler NFR has adopted a Clear Bag Policy.

A: Each ticketed guest can carry one (1) clear bag - either a one-gallon Ziploc-style bag or the 12" x 6" x 12" clear bag - plus a small clutch purse (no larger than 4.5" x 6.5"). The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items. Please refer to the pictures above for the approved and non-approved bags.
Q: What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted?
A: Prohibited bags will not be permitted inside the venue. Fans with prohibited bags will either need to return their bags to their vehicle and transfer their belongings to an approved clear plastic bag or check their bags at the Wrangler NFR Check-In location at the Mendenhall building. Signage will direct you to the Check-In location.
Q: If I have certain medical items that I need to bring into the venue and they won't fit in the clear bag, what do I do?

Q: Are all purses prohibited?
A: Small clutch purses (no larger than 4.5" x 6.5") are permitted along with either the 12" by 6" by 12" clear tote bag or one-gallon freezer bag. This should enable guests to carry in personal items and expedite entry into the venue.
Q: How does this make it more convenient for fans?
A: This process will enable staff to move fans through our checkpoints much faster allowing staff to be more efficient and effective in checking clear bags brought into the arena.
