Change in plan: Atlanta Braves WILL allow outside food in SunTrust Park

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Just days after announcing their policy on outside food in SunTrust Park, the Braves have had a change of heart.

The organization initially said no outside food or drink, except a sealed water bottle, would be allowed into the new stadium.

Tuesday morning the Braves tweeted that, after receiving feedback from fans, they have changed that policy.

“Over the past few days we have heard feedback from our fans expressing their desire to continue to bring food items into the ballpark on game days. We listened and have decided to amend our approach,” the organization posted on Twitter.


Fans will now be allowed to bring food inside SunTrust Park as long as it fits inside a clear, gallon-sized plastic bag. Fans may still bring a sealed plastic water bottle.

“One bag of food and one bottle of water per ticket will be permitted,” the tweet said.

All bags of food are subject to additional inspection.

Exceptions to the policy will be made for those with dietary concerns and infants.
