Columbus Crew SC announces 'no bag' policy at MAPFRE Stadium


COLUMBUS – Columbus Crew SC announced a policy change for 2018 as a result of MAPFRE Stadium’s effort to increase security levels.

Bags larger than 5-inches-by-8-inches-by-1-inch will not be allowed at soccer matches held at MAPFRE Stadium.

The new policy begins March 1 with the SheBelieves Cup doubleheader.

Crew SC says the measure will expedite lines outside the stadium and provide a better experience for supporters attending soccer events.

A similar policy is used at Ohio Stadium.

The Crew Sc's “No Bag” policy does include an exception: guests with medical or childcare needs will be permitted to carry a single bag into MAPFRE Stadium.

In order to expedite entry, those needing to bring a handbag for medical or childcare needs are asked to contact the club's supporter services at 614-447-4169 or in advance of the match for further instructions.
