The Metropolitain Entertainment and Convention Authority announced that starting December 31, 2017, the CenturyLink Center will adopt a clear bag policy for all events including Creighton University men's home basketball games.
Here are some of the main bullet points from the new bag policy:
· Clear plastic bags, measuring 12 inches tall, 12 inches long, and 6 inches wide
· Small or clutch-sized purses or wallets, not exceeding 4.5 inches tall by 6.5 inches long
· One-gallon, clear plastic freezer bags are permitted (Ziploc bag or similar)
· No large purses, bags, backpacks or fanny-packs will be allowed inside
· MECA staff-members are not allowed to hold bags during an event
· Exceptions will be made for bags with medical necessity after appropriate inspection
MECA said it encourages patrons to arrive early to allow for additional security screening time.
