This news reports a significant change in policy within NYC stadiums, allowing attendees to bring their own reusable water bottles starting in 2024. The City Council approved a bill permitting ticket holders to carry such containers made primarily of aluminum or stainless steel into “professional and collegiate sports venues.”

However, there are certain restrictions in place. The containers must be empty upon entry, and any vessel holding over 24 ounces of fluid will not be allowed inside. The primary motive behind this change is cited as part of the city’s efforts to combat fossil fuels and promote sustainable habits.

City Councilmember Shaun Abreu, the bill’s sponsor, emphasized the importance of making good habits easily adoptable by providing this convenience to the public. This initiative follows a similar rule implemented earlier at the U.S. Open, where attendees were allowed to bring reusable water bottles and refill them at on-site stations in the stadium.

The expectation is that this change will be positively received across the various stadiums and arenas in New York City, offering attendees the convenience of staying hydrated without the need to purchase single-use plastic bottles.
