Beginning this fall, Texas Tech Athletics will implement a new clear bag policy that will provide a safer atmosphere for all fans as well as significantly speed up the entry process into all venues.

The new clear bag policy will limit the size and type of bags that may be brought into any Texas Tech athletic venue. Fans will be able to bring the following style and size bag, package or container into the venue:

Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12." (Official Texas Tech team logo clear plastic tote bags will be available through The Matador and United Supermarkets).

One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).

Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the venue with one of the clear plastic bags.

An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection.

The following items will be prohibited from entering any Texas Tech athletic venue: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, non-approved seat cushions and chairbacks*, luggage of any kind, computer bags, camera bags, diaper bags or binocular cases.

The new bag policy is intended to allow fans to enjoy pregame activities in the approved tailgate areas and then enter the venue at a much smoother pace. Texas Tech Athletics will continue to allow items such as binoculars, cameras (no long lenses) and smart phones into its venues.

The Texas Tech soccer program opens the 2016-17 academic year on Aug. 19 when the Red Raiders host New Mexico at the John Walker Soccer Complex.

* Non-approved seat cushions and chairbacks include large traditional seat cushions that have pockets, zippers, compartments or covers. Seat cushions and chairbacks must be 16" or less in width.
