What Should You Do If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter GEODIS Park?
If your bag is too large to enter GEODIS Park, don’t worry, there are storage lockers to rent to store your belongings. The bag check area is just outside Gate F and opens up two hours before kickoff. After the game, these lockers stay open for an hour and a half after the final whistle, which gives you plenty of time to pick up your stuff. As a note, there are a limited number of these locker spots, so plan to arrive early if you need to check your bag before the game.
If you can’t get a locker at GEODIS Park, the next best option to store your bag is in your car. If you drove to the game, you could return your bag and belongings to your vehicle and leave them there. After that, you can get back in line to enter the facility for a game.

However, space tends to be limited at these places, so try and follow the bag policy guidelines so you don’t run into any issues looking for a bar to hold onto your stuff.
