Clear bag policy: Memorial Stadium has a clear bag policy, so bring your things in a clear drawstring or tote bag. The only non-clear bags permitted are diaper bags with a child and small clutches under 7 inches in length. 

Infant tickets: Children ages two and under are allowed to enter the arena at a discounted ticket price. Infant tickets are $5, and they must sit in the lap of an adult.

Alcohol sales: As of fall 2019, Memorial Stadium’s specialty kiosks now sell beer.
