How Does the Snapdragon Stadium Security Staff Review Bags

Fans going to the SDSU football venue will go through a metal detector screening at the entrance. Fans with a bag will go through an additional security check at the gate to have the stadium staff inspect their bag. The bag inspection reviews the size of the bag, if it is clear, and if it contains any prohibited items. If there are no issues with the bag, you will get it back to enter the stadium for your event.


Consider purchasing a clear single-compartment bag for your next game at Snapdragon Stadium! While there is a clear bag policy at the SDSU football venue, there are minor exceptions to this rule. Minor exceptions to the clear bag rule include medical bags, small purses, and clutches that don’t exceed 4.5″ x 6.5″. Below are the different types of bags that come into the football stadium for an event or concert.


  • A clear single-compartment bag that does not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″
  • 1-gallon size freezer bag/clear plastic freezer bag
  • Clear purses
  • Medical bags, Diaper Bags, and any ADA-specific bag

Is There a Locker or Bag Check Area at Snapdragon Stadium for Fans to Use?

Is There a Locker or Bag Check Area at Snapdragon Stadium for Fans to Use

If your bag can’t come into Snapdragon Stadium for any reason, you can rent out a bag check locker for it on the East Side of the stadium. The bag check lockers are on a first-come and first-served basis, so plan to arrive 1-2 hours before your event to get one of these lockers for your belongings. Locker rates will vary in price depending on the occasion.


If you plan to partake in tailgating in the parking lots before home games at the stadium, consider leaving all those bags in your car afterward before heading to the entrance. Traditional bags like backpacks and coolers can’t come into the venue. If you try bringing those items into the venue, you will be denied at the gate, meaning you must bring them back to your car. Doing that may mean you miss kickoff, so plan to leave any non-compliant bag in your vehicle.
