Clear Bag Policy
Colorado State University announced the implementation of a clear bag policy in 2017 to enhance event security procedures for all events at Moby Arena. The purpose of the clear bag policy is to provide a safer environment for the public and expedite patron entry into Moby Arena. This policy aligns itself with the safety trends of professional and collegiate arenas and stadiums nationwide. This new policy limits and restricts the sizes and types of bags that are permitted into Moby Arena during events.
All points of entry will be included under the new policy.
