Game Day Updates and Reminders

Crowd at Dick Price StadiumTo provide a safer environment for the public and expedite fan entry into Dick Price Stadium, Norfolk State University has implemented a protocol that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the stadium. Exceptions to this protocol will be made for all medically necessary items after proper inspection.

In addition to these protocols, fans are encouraged to visit prior to attending games for ticket and parking information.

NSU Athletics strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags, but fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container into the stadium:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.” No buckles, grommets/hardware or decor can be concealing any part of the bag. The bag literally must be all clear, or:
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to:

  • Purses larger than a clutch bag
  • Coolers
  • Briefcases
  • Backpacks
  • Fanny packs
  • Diaper bags
  • Cinch bags
  • Luggage of any kind
  • Computer bags
  • Camera bags
  • Any bag larger than the permissible size outlined above

Fans will continue to be able to enjoy their tailgate activities in the parking lots and to do so with greater safety and the knowledge that their entry into the stadium will be smoother and faster. They also will continue to be able to carry items allowed into the stadium, such as binoculars, cameras and smart phones. In the past year, NSUPD has enhanced its already comprehensive safety plans with the additional measures such as pat downs, bag checks and metal detectors.

As always, safety is our number one priority. This will make the job of checking items much more efficient and effective. We will be able to deliver a better and quicker experience at the gates and also provide a safer environment. We truly appreciate our fans’ cooperation. This public safety measure is being successfully used at other large sports stadiums nationwide.

Parking Note Fans who require handicap parking should enter campus through Gate 8 only on game days. Fans with a handicap placard must have a public parking pass or can pay for public parking entry at Gate 8. For more parking information, click here.
