Chase Center Bag Policy

Chase Center Bag Policy

Chase Center is home to the Golden State Warriors NBA team at 1 Warriors Way, San Francisco, CA 94158. The bag policy for a Warriors game or concert at the San Francisco Arena is bags that don’t exceed 14”x6”x14″ can enter. The security team, as of 2023, allows any bag to enter the facility, but note that this policy could change as more places move to a clear single-bag policy.


Here is the complete Chase Center bag policy guide for your next basketball game or event!


How Does the Chase Center Staff Review Your Bag?

How Does the Chase Center Staff Review Your Bag

Fans coming to San Francisco to attend an event at Chase Center will go through a metal detector at the gate’s entrance. If a fan has a bag with them, then they will hand that over to the security team to review it before it can enter the facility. The bag check reviews the inside and outside of the bag to ensure it fits the size limit and the items within it. The item check is to ensure there are no prohibited items inside it.


Consider purchasing a single-compartment clear bag for your next Golden State Warriors game or another event! While Chase Center in 2023 allows any bag inside the venue, more places are moving towards a clear single-bag policy, which means Chas Center can follow next. Here are some other types you can still bring into the arena.


  • Medical bags
  • Diaper bags
  • Small clear single-compartment bags that don’t exceed 14”x6”x14″
  • Small purses
  • Fanny packs
  • Small drawstring bags
  • Small tote Bags

What Happens If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter Chase Center?

If your bag, for whatever reason, can’t come in with you to a Warriors game, there is a bag check station on the exterior of Chase Center. The bag check area is at the bike valet area between 16th Street and Terry Francois Blvd. There is a fee to hold on to your stuff here, and it opens about one hour before tip-off and stays open one hour after the final whistle.


If you drove to the game and want to avoid paying for a bag locker, you can always leave your bag in your car if it can’t enter the facility.


Finally, if the locker storage units are all sold out, and you don’t have a car to leave your bag in, consider seeing if a nearby hotel can watch your stuff. There are numerous hotels within walking distance of Chase Center that you can see if they can protect your property. Most charge a small fee to hold onto your stuff behind the main desk in their storage room.
