Capital One Arena announced Friday they have initiated a new bag policy for the upcoming Capitals and Georgetown basketball season.
The biggest change includes a firm no backpacks policy. No matter the size, any kind of backpack will not be allowed in the arena, and luggage, roller bags, hard-sided bags/briefcases and bags larger than 14" long, 14" tall, and 6" wide are still prohibited.
Capital One Arena would like to remind fans of the venue’s security policies for all events including the upcoming @Capitals, @WashWizards and @GeorgetownHoops seasons.— Capital One Arena (@CapitalOneArena) September 13, 2019

Diaper bags and medical bags will be allowed into the arena but will need to be searched first.
Additionally, the arena will now have a no bags and express line at the F Street entrance for guests who are not carrying bags or are carrying a clutch or purse smaller than 4.5"x 6.5".
