COLUMBUS – As a reminder, MAPFRE Stadium’s new “No Bag” policy for soccer matches is set to take effect. Per the new policy, bags larger than 5-by-8-by-1-inches will not be allowed at soccer matches held at MAPFRE Stadium. The measure will not only enhance security for the venue, but will also expedite lines in an effort to maximize the supporter experience for soccer events at MAPFRE Stadium.

The “No Bag” policy does include an exception: guests with medical or childcare needs will be permitted to carry a single bag into MAPFRE Stadium. In order to expedite entry, those needing to bring a handbag for medical or childcare needs should contact our supporter services at 614-447-4169 in advance of the match for further instructions.


All items and individuals entering MAPFRE Stadium are subject to inspection. Supporters may visit for additional information on permissible items and other MAPFRE Stadium policies. All bags, 5-by-8-by-1-inches or exempt, will still be searched. For non-soccer events at the venue, MAPFRE Stadium policies – including the “No Bag” policy – are subject to change.

MAPFRE Stadium (pronounced “MAH-fray” Stadium) is the first ever soccer-specific stadium in Major League Soccer. It opened its doors on May 15, 1999 to a sellout crowd for a match against the New England Revolution and in 2016 Columbus Crew SC set single-season MAPFRE Stadium records for sellouts and total attendance. MAPFRE Stadium has hosted numerous national and international events: 10 U.S. Soccer FIFA World Cup Qualifiers – specifically four “Dos a Cero” victories for the U.S. over Mexico (2001, 2005, 2009, 2013) – FIFA Women’s World Cup matches, the 2001 MLS Cup, the 2015 MLS Cup and two MLS All-Star Games. MAPFRE Stadium is also the host, through 2020, of the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s (OHSAA) state championship matches for boys’ and girls’ soccer. Beyond major sporting events, the venue continues to host numerous concerts and also serves as the proud home of the annual three-day festival “Rock on the Range”, which returned for the 11th installment in 2017. The venue was named the world’s most influential stadium of the decade by Stadia Magazine in 2010, and has won a Sports Turf Managers Association Field of the Year Award in 2010, 2013 and 2015. In 2008, the venue added a permanent stage in the North End, allowing for up to 35,000 fans to take in concerts and other marquee events. MAPFRE Stadium received its current name in a historic partnership announced in 2015.
