Wrigley Field Bag Policy 2023
Wrigley Field bag rules restrict fans from bringing bags larger than 16 inches by 8 inches by 16 inches. Hard-sided coolers of any size are not allowed.
Since the start of the 2016 season, the Chicago Cubs home ground has implemented screening through metal detectors at the gates. This helps to enhance the fans' security and safety and speed up the checking process.
Here are the type of bags allowed inside the ballpark:
- Small purses
- Drawstring bags
- Tote bags
- Diaper bag
- Fanny packs
- Lunch bags
- Medical bag
- Soft-sided coolers
- Any ADA-compliant bag for an individual
However, all these bag types must not exceed the allowed size limit.
Chicago Cubs bag policy does not permit bringing backpacks of any type or size, including clear ones. Exceptions are made for diaper bags for guests with young children and medical bags for people with medical conditions.
Further, baby changing stations are available throughout the stadium to aid parents and caregivers attending the game. These are available in the Advocate Health Care First Aid station and most restroom facilities.
Here is a list of items prohibited inside Wrigley Field:
- Air horns or other noisemakers
- Animals, except service animals to aid guests with disabilities
- Brooms, poles, staffs, or sticks
- Full-sized baseball bats
- Inflatables such as beach balls
- Laser pointers
- Mono/tripods or other professional camera equipment
- Portable stadium seats
- Selfie sticks
- Wrapped packages
All the items and bags are subject to inspection during entry. The gate officials will go through your bags and things to ensure they comply with the ballpark policies and the major league.
Any items deemed prohibited will not be allowed to enter the ballpark. Fans will have to either throw the thing away or return it to the vehicle and store it there.
The club does not provide any locker service for the guests to store their items within the ballpark.
