Following the lead of professional franchises, most college athletics departments are adopting a new policy for bags that can be brought into sporting events.  And, the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns are no exception.

Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, Louisiana will adopt a "clear bag" policy for all ticketed events in all sports.  The venues include Cajun Field, the Cajundome, Earl K. Long Gym, Russo Park, Lamson Park and the Cajuns Track/Soccer facility.

The approved bags include:

  • Clear plastic bag that does not exceed 12" by 6" by 12".
  • Clutch or small purse, with or without a strap, that does not exceed 6.5" by 4.5".
  • Equipment bag for necessary medical items.
  • Diaper bag for age-appropriate children accompanied by an adult.

Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to:  large purses, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, mesh bags, or any bag larger than the permissible size. Tinted or printed-pattern plastic bags are not clear, so they will not be permitted.
