Frisco, TX - Beginning with FC Dallas' 2018 MLS regular season opener on March 3 vs Real Salt Lake, Toyota Stadium will institute a clear bag and purse policy for all ticketed events, including concerts.

The implementation of the clear bag policy is intended to enhance fan safety and expedite entry into Toyota Stadium by reducing the time required to search bags at stadium entry gates. This policy also aligns with other clear bag policies at Dallas/Fort Worth sports facilities and events.

One gallon clear plastic freezer bags.

Credentialed media and staff, team personnel and credentialed guests will not be subject to the bag restrictions but will continue to enter at the designated stadium checkpoints where they will be subject to screening and bag inspections.

Exceptions will be made for medically-necessary items. Please email to get special clearance for medically-necessary items.

Camera bags

Cinch bags
