MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — All bags brought to ticketed Kansas State University athletic events must be clear starting next school year.

The Manhattan Mercury reports that the goal of the new policy is to provide a safer environment and speedier entry into venues. Many other collegiate programs and professional leagues have already adopted the policy.

Kansas State athletic director John Currie said in a news release that the experience of fans and their safety is a “top priority.”

Besides clear bags, the policy allows small clutch bags and medically necessary items after proper inspection. Football season ticket holders will receive one approved clear plastic bag per account when their season tickets are mailed in August.

Prohibited items include coolers, backpacks, diaper bags, camera bags and seat cushions with pockets and zippers.
