Coliseum Safety Enhancements


For those attending the USC Spring Game on Saturday at the Coliseum or any game this upcoming fall, please read the below safety enhancements which will go into effect at the stadium entry this week.

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite guest entry into the venue, the University of Southern California and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will implement a new clear bag policy this year that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the Coliseum for all events.

The clear bag policy affects the type and size of the bags permitted into the stadium -- not the items (keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets, and credit cards) that you would normally bring to a game. Guests can still carry these items in their pockets. Guests will also be allowed to openly carry a blanket or jackets into the stadium, though they will be subject to search. For the fastest way to enter the stadium, we strongly encourage guests to not bring any type of bags, but if you must, outlined below are the specific types of bags that will be allowed inside the venue:
  • One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12" by 6" and 12" or
  • A one-gallon clear plastic storage bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, guests may also carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection.
Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, oversized seat cushions with pockets or metal structures, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

These measures are designed to promote public safety while encouraging guests to limit the items they bring into the venue to create a more efficient screening and entry process. We ask that all items are visible when entering the venue. The fewer items that are concealed, the quicker the process becomes.



Hi! Do you know if clear fanny packs are ok?

Hey! This is a great article! So many fans were caught not knowing about the clear bag policy! Several stadiums have gone to clear bags only this year and we are hearing that it will be made mandatory across all of the SEC next year! We were thankfully ahead of the curve on this trend, but even still had a hard time keeping up with production. We have several retailers in the USC area that carry our clear tote bags and game day cross body bags. Great job getting the word out! #Fighton
