Bon Secours Wellness Arena

Bon Secours Wellness Arena is adopting a clear bag policy for all events, beginning with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits’ home opener on Friday, Oct. 13.

Each ticketed guest will be permitted to carry one large clear bag up to 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches plus a small clutch purse no larger than 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches. The small clutch must be carried into the venue outside the clear bag and is subject to search.

No backpacks, briefcases, purses larger than a clutch bag, cinch bags, and fanny packs that are not clear and exceed the size restriction are allowed. An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection upon entry.

Diapers and baby supplies can be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, is allowed an approved clear bag and a clutch purse into the arena.

The guidelines are the same those used at many arenas and National Football League and college stadiums, including Clemson and the University of South Carolina.

“The safety and security of our guests is of utmost importance at our events,” said Beth Paul, general manager of the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. “Many of our patrons may already be familiar with this process, as it is used by many arenas and college and NFL stadiums.”

Clear bags provide another layer of security as they are easier and faster to search.
