New Petco Park Bag Policy for 2024

You don’t want to be that person who gets all the way to the front of the line only to be stuck with a bag too large to get through the security gate. Don’t be that fool. Know the rules. Bags and backpacks are not allowed inside Petco Park for games, concerts and events, except for these permitted sizes:

Allowed Bags

  • Fanny packs 5”×7” or smaller
  • Clear Plastic Bags 12”×6”×12” or smaller
  • Bags and purses 5”×7” or smaller
  • Diaper Bags / Medical Bags

    What Bags Are Allowed
    Small purses, clutches, and fanny packs are allowed as long as they are smaller than 5 inches by 7 inches in size. The clear plastic bags now commonly associated with sports and stadiums are allowed as long as they are sized 12” (tall) x 6” (deep) x 12” (wide) or smaller.

    Diaper bags and medical bags that necessitate being larger than the size limitations are allowed. They will be subjected to search at the gate.

    What Bags Are Not Allowed
    Any bags over the size limits, Backpacks, Drawstring Bags, Grocery Bags, Folding Chair Bags, Laptop Cases, Motorcycle Helmet Bags, and Canvas/Plastic Grocery Tote are not allowed.

    While all of this may seem personally inconvenient, focus instead on how much swifter, smoother and safer your entry experience is at the entrance gates!

    You are also allowed to leave mid-game and return if you need something.
