To ensure a safe environment for the public, eliminate unnecessary contact at entry gates, and to accelerate fan entry into the stadium, a clear bag policy has been implemented that limits the size and type of bags that can be brought into the stadium. Exceptions to this policy will be made for all medically necessary items after proper inspection.

Commonwealth Stadium strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags, but fans will be able to carry the following style and size of bag, package, or container:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12.” (Official Edmonton Elks team logo clear plastic tote bags are available at team store outlets or at Shop Elks)
  • No buckles, grommets/hardware or décor can conceal any part of the bag. It must be all clear.
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (zipper bag or similar).
  • Small clutch bags, which cannot exceed 4.5″ x 6.5″ in size, with or without a handle or strap can
    be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bags.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, non-approved seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size. This proactive measure will enhance safety inside and outside the stadium and speed the security screening process for all CFL fans. The public deserves to be in a safe, secure environment. This is about both safety and improving the overall fan experience. Thank you for your cooperation.
