Inspection & Inappropriate Items

All guests will be subject to inspection upon entering Lucas Oil Stadium. The following items are not permitted in Lucas Oil Stadium: food and beverage items, bottles, cans, liquor containers, tumblers, weapons, coolers, bags, large purses, backpacks, video recorders, horns, artificial noisemakers, large signs, promotional items with commercial slogans or identification, all forms of fireworks, animals except for ADA service dogs, any objects that obstruct another guest’s view of the playing field and any missile-like objects. Items that are considered irritants will also not be allowed inside Lucas Oil Stadium. These irritants include, but are not limited to: laser pointers, strobe lights, oversized flags, banners, or signs. The Big Ten Football Championship management staff will determine whether a specific item in this category represents an “irritant” to other patrons and whether it should be prohibited. Please be advised that nothing larger than a small personal handbag, subject to inspection, will be permitted inside Lucas Oil Stadium.

Clear Bag Policy

Please note that the NFL’s Clear Bag Policy WILL BE IN EFFECT for the Football Championship Game. The Clear Bag Policy affects the type and size of bags that are permitted into the stadium – not the items that fans normally need to bring to a game. Each fan may bring in their pockets items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets and credit cards. Fans must hold these items in their hands at time of entry for screening. Fans may also carry a blanket or jacket into the stadium. Every fan may use the below specified bags to carry other items into the stadium:

• One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC that does not exceed 12” by 6” by 12”.
• In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, fans may also carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap – no larger than 4.5” by 6.5”.
• An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at the following gates: Northwest corner (employee entrance) OR Southeast corner (adjacent to Ticket Office).
• Formula, diapers and wipes may be included in one of the clear bag choices listed above. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.
• All items subject to inspection.
