FIU Stadium Policies
All general admission gates will open 60 minutes prior to kickoff for FIU home football games. At the time that the gates are open to the public, all concession stands will be operational and all security and ushers will be in place. The following rules are in effect at all FIU events:
Prohibited Behavior: Unruly, threatening, or disruptive behavior such as standing in the aisles, profane and abusive language, smoking, fighting, throwing objects and drunkenness will not be tolerated and can result in ejection, arrest, and/or loss of ticket privileges. Should you observe any of this disruptive behavior, please notify your nearest security or law enforcement officer. Standing on seats/bleachers is strictly prohibited. Artificial noisemakers are not permitted in Riccardo Silva Stadium for FIU Football home games per Conference USA. Such items will be removed immediately. Signs of a derogatory nature directed toward individual players, teams, staff, spectators or game officials are not permitted. Stadium procedures prohibit fans from entering the field of play unless they are properly credentialed. Violators are subject to ejection and/or arrest.
FIU Athletics Clear Bag Guidelines: In the interest of public safety and following the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) Best Practices Guide, FIU Athletics will implement clear bag guidelines effective August 2017, University officials announced today.
The guidelines, which are part of a growing trend at professional and collegiate sporting venues across the country and consistent with all major sporting venues here in South Florida, will start with the 2017-18 competition season and will include all FIU athletic facilities that host ticketed events: Riccardo Silva Stadium (football), Ocean Bank Convocation Center (men's and women's basketball, volleyball), FIU Soccer Stadium (men’s and women’s soccer), FIU Baseball Stadium (baseball), and Felsberg Field (softball).
Each ticket holder, including children, may carry one approved clear bag, such as a one-gallon clear plastic storage bag (Ziplock bag or similar), plus a small purse about the size of a hand.
The following bags will be permitted inside FIU athletic facilities and are subject to search.
- Clear plastic bag that does not exceed 12" by 6" by 12".
- Clutch or small purse, with or without a strap that does not exceed 6.5" by 4.5".
- Equipment bag for necessary medical items.
- Diapers and wipes can be carried in a clear bag for age-appropriate children accompanied by an adult.
Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: large purses, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, mesh bags, or any bag larger than the permissible size. Tinted or printed-pattern plastic bags are not clear, so they will not be permitted.
Fans can wear or carry items such as binoculars, hand-held electronic devices and cameras (with lenses shorter than four inches) without carrying cases. Fans may carry in seat cushions that will be screened upon entry.
"FIU events are known for their family type atmosphere. We are committed to maintaining and enhancing the safety of our fans, guests, and participating teams" said Alexander Casas, Chief of Police. "The new guidelines will speed up entry into games while improving security measures."
FIU is committed to maintaining a safe environment at all athletic events. This is an important step in achieving that. For more information about these new guidelines please visit www.fiusports.com.
