Burton Albion is reminding fans that they are encouraged not to bring bags to the Pirelli Stadium.
The policy is in operation for security and safety reasons and is in line with other football clubs in the EFL.
The club does not permit holdalls and rucksacks in the stands, terraces or in hospitality areas. The club also discourages bringing smaller bags into the ground. Anyone bringing any bag to the Pirelli Stadium will have to have it checked and tagged by security staff. This will mean that supporters must be willing to present their bags for checking on arrival and that there may be queues meaning extra time will be needed to enter the stadium.
