  • Glass/metal containers are prohibited. However, this rule does not apply to personal canteens or thermos bottles that are one liter or less in size and do not contain beverages in violation of the above rule.
  • Aisles, stairs, and walkways shall be kept clear of hazards and obstacles at all times, to ensure safe and easy passage.

Clear Bag Policy

  • One-gallon clear re-sealable plastic storage bags

Permitted Items

  • Keys. It is an important Cougar tradition is to rattle your keys when the Cougars are punting or kicking off, and just maybe it will “rattle” the opposing team.
  • Banners/signs. Only the ones that “are in good taste, contain no profanity or derogatory statements and do not block the view of other patrons,” are allowed according to stadium policy.
  • Weather appropriate wear — the Pullman climate can be unforgiving. Make sure you are well prepared for both sunny and rainy games.
