ND Adopts Backpack Ban for FB Games

The University of Notre Dame has adopted a new ban on backpacks and other items at the football stadium on game days. Beginning with the season-opener Saturday August 31 fans will be prohibited from bringing large bags such as backpacks, duffel bags and totes into the stadium [see photo provided]. Smaller bags, such as purses, will be allowed but will be inspected by trained security personnel, along with blankets, coats, ponchos and other similar items.
“Our top priority is safety, and we believe that in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing and other incidents through the years, this new policy is the prudent course of action,” said Michael Seamon, associate vice president for campus safety and director of game day operations. “We know our fans will adapt quickly to the policy, and we appreciate their cooperation in helping to make Notre Dame Stadium as safe as possible.”
Seamon said his hope is that fans would not bring bags of any kind into the stadium, and he added that the addition of specially trained inspectors will ensure that any delays at the gates will be kept to a minimum.
