Prohibited Items

Bottles, Cans, outside food or beverages, weapons or firearms, coolers or containers, backpacks of any size, I-Pads or similar tablet devices larger than 7 inches, fireworks, illegal substances, frisbees, beach balls, spurs, artificial noisemakers, balloons, laptop computers and laser pointers.

Events in today’s world are such that at any time, Sprint Arena and/or NCAA officials must without notice, strictly restrict bags allowed in the arena.  Play it safe!  I recommend you replace purses with stadium and/or NCAA approved clear plastic bags.  Stadium and/or NCAA approved clear plastic bags are sold at many retail stores including Walmart and Target.  Bags are also available at www.walmart.com and www.target.com  Click for a sample of an approved clear plastic bag available at Target.com 

Seating Chart/Map  Ticket sales and seating chart and maps are not yet available – when announced we will update this section.


Premium Seating

Search at Stadium Entry

Again, due to world advents both past and current, all guests are subject to search.  Just like at the airport, the more prepared you are for a search – the better it goes and the faster you are "on your way". 

Info on Big 12 Tournament

Unfortunately, information similar to that provided by many venues is lacking from the Sprint Center.  If additional guest information is added, we will revise this section to reflect such changes.  Again, world events are such that an entrance change could we required without time to notify guests.  Be prepared.

For the 2015 Big 12 Tournament, the Sprint Center offered “Express Lanes” for entrance for persons without bags. No such similar policy has been announced, but we will keep watching and let you know if something is announced.

ATM’s

Information on location of ATM’s within Spring Center has been requested.  When and if we receive the information, it will appear in this section.
