In efforts to provide a safer environment for the public and in order to expedite fan entry into the stadium, a Clear Bag Policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the Alamodome is in effect. Comic Con attendees who board VIA buses with non-clear bags, large purses, backpacks, etc., will not be allowed to take those bags into the Alamodome.
