Kentucky Wildcats Football: Backpacks Aren't Cool in Commonwealth


Kentucky Fans, football season is upon us – so pack your bags and get the RV tuned as that means prime-tailgating time is here as well. Only, leave those bags in the RV when the game is about to kick off, as Commonwealth isn’t going to be allowing them anymore.

Security at Commonwealth Stadium announced today that bags larger than 13.5 inches by 10.7 inches will not be allowed in the stadium and only one small bag will be allowed per person, starting with the home opener on September 7th against Miami (OH).

According to UKAthletics.com “although a UK win is on everyone’s mind, student-athlete, staff and guests’ safety is of utmost importance.”

If you don’t know if your bag is, there will be sizing bins at all entrance gates to the stadium.

The new security policy will serve on top of the pre-existing prohibited items list for Commonwealth Stadium, which includes:

  • Alcohol
  • Aluminum containers
  • Artificial noisemakers
  • Backpacks
  • Chairbacks larger than 18”
  • Firearms
  • Food
  • Golf Carts
  • Glass containers
  • Ice/Ice chests
  • Irritants
  • Large bags
  • Pets (excluding service dogs)
  • Portable/combustible fuel heaters
  • Tobacco Products

Yes, I know what you’re thinking… really, you still can not bring your golf cart into the stadium.
