Wrigley Field's bag policy for the 2024 season prohibits backpacks (including clear backpacks), hard-sided coolers and bags larger than 16 x 16 x 8 inches in size. Bags smaller than 16 x16 x 8 inches in size (such as wallets, drawstring bags, fanny packs, lunch bags, briefcases and soft-sided coolers) are permitted and do not have to be see-through. Exceptions will be made for medical bags and diaper bags that accompany guests with young children. All bags are subject to inspection.

Certain items are prohibited at Wrigley Field, too. These include:

  • Aerosol spray (including sunscreen)
  • Air horns or other distracting noisemakers
  • Alcohol
  • Animals, with the exception of service animals
  • Brooms, poles, staffs or sticks
  • Clothing with obscene, indecent, profane and/or inappropriate language or visuals
