Chase Center Bag Policy 2023: The Ultimate Guide
Located right in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco, Chase Center is one of the country’s premier indoor arenas. Opened in 2019, the state-of-the-art arena is the home of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, who moved to the city from their previous home in Oakland when Chase Center was completed.
As well as the 18,000 seat arena itself, Chase Center is home to tons of shopping and dining options to keep you entertained before and after the game. Plus, thanks to its location in the city of San Francisco, there’s no end of things to do close to the arena. Chase Center is ideally located for further exploration of the city, so drop off your unneeded bags at a Chase Center luggage storage locker and enjoy your trip.
Chase Center bag policy
Whether you're attending a Warriors game or a concert, Chase Center recommends that people don't bring bags with them when they visit the arena. Backpacks of any size are not permitted inside Chase Center, but other bags are allowed, provided they don't exceed 14 inches by 14 inches by 6 inches in size. All bags are subject to search by security staff upon entering Chase Center.
Can you bring a bag into Chase Center?
All bags larger than the 14" x 14" x 6" limit can be stored in the bag valet location located on Warriors Way, but it’s often busy on game days and will set you back $10 if you want to store your bag there. If you don't want to use the Chase Center's bag check location, find a nearby Bounce luggage storage location to drop off your bags before going to the arena.
If you do bring a bag into Chase Center and lose any of your belongings, find a member of the Chase Center staff and the Guest Services Kiosk to help you with what to do next.
