West Virginia University is establishing a new security policy for fans entering sports events.
Starting with the women’s soccer home opener on Aug. 24, the school will adopt the clear bag policy set by the NFL and other collegiate programs.
Fans will be allowed to bring in a clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bag no larger than 12 inches in length and 6 inches in depth. Additional small clutch bags will be allowed into venues.
Exceptions will be made for medically necessary items. Banned items will include purses, diaper bags, coolers and backpacks.
The policy applies to ticketed events at Milan Puskar Stadium, WVU Coliseum, Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium and Monongalia County Ballpark.
