Rogers Centre Bag Policy

Rogers Centre Bag Policy

Rogers Centre is the MLB home of the Toronto Blue Jays at 1 Blue Jays Way, Toronto, ON M5V 1J1, next to the CN Tower. Fans can bring a bag in for a baseball game or other event as long as it does not exceed 16″ x 16″ x 8″. That means regular tote bags, drawstring bags, purses, and soft-sided coolers that are below 16″ x 16″ x 8″ listing are permitted into the venue.


Here is the complete Rogers Centre bag policy and more for your next home game in Toronto, Canada.


How Does Rogers Centre Review Your Bag?

How Does Rogers Centre Review Your Bag

Fans entering Rogers Centre on game day must go through a metal detector before scanning their tickets. If a fan has a bag, the security team will review it separately by opening it up to ensure there are no prohibited items in it. If there are, the fan will either need to surrender those items at the gate to gain entry to the stadium or find a place to leave their bag and items, like their car, before returning to enter the stadium.


Here are some of the best bags to bring into the MLB ballpark that complies with the bag policy of Rogers Centre. Buy a clear bag for your next stadium visit!

  • Clear backpacks (generally the best option since it helps the security team know what is in your bag, which speeds up the review process)
  • A fanny pack
  • A diaper bag
  • Purses
  • Drawstring bags
  • Totes
  • Any other type of bag that is less than 16 inches by 8 inches

What Should You Do If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter the Toronto Blues Jays Ballpark?

If your backpack is too big to enter the facility or you have items in the bag that can’t enter the Major League Baseball stadium, your best bet is to leave those items in your car.


However, if you did not drive to Rogers Centre and took public transportation to the venue, your next best bet is to leave your stuff at a hotel or bar in downtown Toronto. Plenty of bars and hotels are all within walking distance of Rogers Centre, so you can stop by there to see if they will take your bag. Most bars, restaurants, and hotels that accept your bag will charge you money for this since they only have a limited amount of space to hold onto bags while you are at the game.
