In response to recent changes to the bag policy at Bryant-Denny Stadium, retailers across the state are adding a line of bags that will meet the requirements for entry into the stadium as the start of the 2016 season approaches.

The University of Alabama announced earlier in the summer that it was modifying its security policy by limiting the size and style of bags allowed into the stadium. To be approved for entry into the stadium, bags or purses must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC, and cannot exceed 12 inches x 6 inches x 12 inches in size. Small, one-compartment, clutch purses that do not exceed 4½ inches by 6½ inches (with or without a handle or strap) also will be permitted. All bags will be subject to inspection at the gate and may be subject to additional inspection inside the stadium.
