MILWAUKEE — With attendance up significantly for Brewers home games, the team announcing a new bag policy that will go into effect on the first game of the 2020 season to help get fans into the Miller Park more quickly.

Beginning next season, only single-compartment (i.e. tote) bags, purses, clutch purses, soft-sided cooler bags, clear bags, drawstring bags, diaper bags and medically-necessary items will be allowed into Miller Park (maximum size of 16”x16”x8”).

“This new policy is consistent with what many teams have implemented this year, and with large crowds at Miller Park for most games, it’s important that we streamline our process. The elimination of multi-compartment bags will significantly improve the efficiency of the screening process, which will allow fans to quickly and safely enter Miller Park in time for first pitch.” said Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger.

With the new policy, fans may continue to enter Miller Park with single-compartment bags, soft-sided coolers and clear bags without obscured interior pockets. Multi-compartment backpacks, bags and purses will no longer be permitted. Backpacks purchased inside the ballpark will be permitted on the date of purchase only.
