OMAHA, Neb. — In a change of policy, state wrestling tournament fans will now be allowed to bring all cameras into the CenturyLink Center beginning with the 4 p.m. session Thursday.

The Nebraska School Activities Association and Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority announced the change because so many families arrived with cameras for the morning session.

Previously, MECA did not permit professional cameras with interchangeable lenses inside the arena. However, point-and-shoot cameras and video cameras were allowed.

The arena’s clear bag policy remains in effect.
