Point-and-shoot cameras are permitted inside the arena. Professional camera equipment, selfie stickes, camera bags or cameras with telephoto lenses longer than six inches and video cameras are prohibited inside the arena.

The clear bag policy is intended to enhance public safety while minimizing time spent searching bags at gate security checkpoints.

Each ticketed fan is permitted to bring in only one clear bag and/or a small clutch purse. Fans are encouraged to arrive early, know which items are prohibited and avoid bringing a bag, if at all possible.

Razorback fans will be able to bring otherwise permissible items into University of Arkansas athletic facilities by using:

· 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)
· Small clutch purses, no larger than 4.5” x 6.5”, the size of the palm of your hand, with or without a handle or strap

All clear bags and clutch purses will be screened prior to entry. All bags and purses not meeting the above requirements will not be permitted. Although permitted, childcare items, including diapers, must also be carried in an approved clear bag.

Fans will not be prohibited from carrying necessary medical supplies or devices into the stadium, but will need to go through the bag check line at their entry gate for a thorough screening of the items. The person requiring these supplies or devices must accompany the bag at all times. Medical exception bags will be tagged once cleared through security.

Working personnel, including media, will continue to enter the stadium through designated gates where they will be subject to screening and bag inspections already in effect.

The University of Arkansas’ policy is consistent with a Southeastern Conference Bag Policy that is in effect for football games at all league institutions.

How does the policy improve public safety? The clear bag is easily searched and significantly reduces faulty bag searches. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign.

What can I do to help get into the arena more quickly? Arrive early, know which items are prohibited and avoid bringing a bag, if at all possible. Gates open 90 minutes prior to tipoff.

How many bags may each person bring into the arena? One large clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or the 12” x 6” x 12” clear bag – plus a small clutch (the size of the palm of your hand) that does not exceed 4.5” x 6.5”. The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items and is easily searched.

What about diaper bags? Diapers and non-medically necessary items for babies and young children must be carried in an approved clear bag.

Do I have to put everything I’m carrying into the permissible bags? No. Fans are limited only to the type of bags carried into the arena, not items that they may normally bring to a game that fit in pockets or clutch bags (e.g., keys, makeup, feminine products, comb, phone, wallet, credit cards).

May fans carry cameras, binoculars, smart phones or tablets separately from what they put in a clear bag? Yes. A phone, tablet, binoculars or cameras may be carried independently into the arena as long as it is not in its own bag. Fans may also place those items within their clear bag, as long as they are not contained in an additional container.

If I have certain items that I need to bring into the arena for medical reasons and they won’t fit in the clear bag, what do I do? Fans needing to carry a bag for required medical supplies or devices will need to go through the bag check line at their entry gate for a thorough screening of the bags and the medical items. The person requiring these supplies or devices must accompany the bag at all times. Medical exception bags will be tagged once cleared through security.

Are all purses prohibited? No. Small clutch purses, with or without a handle or strap, that do not exceed 4.5” x 6.5” (the approximate size of the palm of your hand), are permitted along with either the 12” x 6” x 12” clear tote bag or a one-gallon freezer bag. Fans are encouraged not to bring any bags, but the policy has been created to balance fan needs with improved public safety and convenience.

Does this bag policy apply to credentialed individuals (e.g., media & working staff)? Credentialed individuals will be permitted to bring bags that do not meet the policy guidelines. However, those bags will be searched at specifically designated gates prior to entry. Only bags that pass the inspection will be allowed into the stadium.

What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted? Fans carrying bags that do not comply with the Clear Bag Policy will be asked to return their bags to their vehicle and transfer their belongings to an approved clear bag before entering the stadium.

May I leave a bag or unwanted items outside the arena rather than returning them to my vehicle? No, the University of Arkansas is not responsible for any item left outside Bud Walton Arena gates upon entry. For security reasons, fans should expect that items left outside the arena will be removed and discarded.

Can I bring a non-clear bag if it fits inside the approved clear bag? No. The only permitted non-clear bags are small clutches no bigger than 4.5” by 6.5.” Clutches, purses and wallets larger than 4.5” by 6.5” are prohibited. You may transfer the contents of a non-approved bag that is larger than 4.5” by 6.5” into an approved clear bag to bring into the stadium, but you may not place the entire non-permissible bag itself into a clear bag.

Have any of the prohibited Items changed as well, along with this new bag policy? Yes, the Prohibited Items list is reviewed annually and updated to remain current with the changing trends in fan safety and security. For a complete list of permissible and prohibited items, visit the Arkansas Razorback Basketball Fan Guide at

The UA reserves the right to remove the ticket holder from the premises if, in the sole discretion of security personnel, the ticket holder’s conduct endangers or disrupts the environment. All people must have a ticket, regardless of age, to enter the arena. Per SEC rules, no re-entry is permitted at any gate. All bags will be searched at the gates upon entering the arena. Public address announcements are restricted to emergency situations only and must be requested through University of Arkansas Police (UAPD).
