C.H. Collins Athletic Complex opened in 2004 and can seat 12,000 spectators – 6,000 on the home grandstands and 6,000 on the visitor grandstands, Wednesday, April 24, 2019, in Denton, Texas.

With the start of high school football season less than a week away, Denton ISD released a clear bag policy slated to go into effect at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex and Bronco Field, according to a news release from the district Friday morning.

Spectators entering both stadiums are encouraged to carry as few items as possible. The policy prohibits fans from entering with bags and purses that are larger than a clutch, backpacks, briefcases, drawstring bags and coolers.

Guests can bring in plastic storage bags, clear vinyl or plastic totes, small clutch purses, or a diaper bag when accompanied by an infant or young child. Camera bags are permitted, but subject to visual inspection.

“We realize this is a change from our past stadium practices,” Denton ISD athletic director Joey Florence said in the release. “We are making every effort to make the game experience safer and more enjoyable for everyone.”

Braswell kicks off the 2019 season next Thursday at C.H. Collins against Red Oak. Ryan will host Mesquite Poteet the following day.

Denton’s first home game is Friday, Sept. 6 against Frisco Lone Star at C.H. Collins. Guyer welcomes in North Crowley on Thursday, Sept. 12.
