Each person shall be allowed: One bag that does not exceed 12” x 6” x 12” in size. In addition, each person will be allowed to hand-carry a blanket, poncho or jacket and a seat cushion. Strollers are allowed, however they must be collapsible and fit underneath the seat and stored safely without obstructing the aisle-ways for other guests.

Please be advised Aloha Stadium does not allow guests to bring outside food and beverages into the stadium.  This policy will be strictly enforced at the gates. No tailgating will be permitted after kickoff. Guests will be required to go into the stadium or leave the premises. Law enforcement officers along with stadium personnel will also be performing sobriety checks around the stadium. Fans are asked to drink responsibly and use a designated driver.
