Attention Fans Planning to Attend Hurricane Basketball Games This Season

Nov. 12, 2001

In light of recent events, the University of Miami, in conjunction with various local law enforcement agencies, will be increasing the level of security during our home basketball games at the Miami Arena. Upon your arrival at the Miami Arena this season, you will find that we have changed various procedures which may delay entry into the facility. In order to ensure your safety, there will be inspections of items and persons entering the facility. To facilitate your entrance, we encourage you to bring into the Miami Arena only what is absolutely necessary for your enjoyment of the game. Only small purses or bags (diaper bags, etc.) measuring less than 14 inches square will be permitted inside the Miami Arena and these bags will be searched. Please leave items such as basketballs, large briefcases, and backpacks in your vehicles. We encourage you to arrive early in order to get to your seats in time for the games. Doors will open 60 minutes prior to tipoff.

We look forward to seeing you this season at the Miami Arena and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.
