    A new policy announced by the NFL today limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the stadium.

    The NFL Committee on Stadium Security has implemented a security measure that restricts the size of bags, packages and containers.

    The following items may not be brought into any NFL stadium:

    • purses larger than a clutch bag
    • coolers
    • briefcases
    • backpacks
    • fanny packs
    • cinch bags
    • luggage of any kind
    • seat cushions
    • computer bags
    • camera bags
    • any bag larger than the permissible size.

    Items that are allowed include the following:

    • Clear plastic bags cannot exceed 12 inches long by 6 inches wide and 12 inches deep.
    • Clear plastic freezer bags cannot be larger than one gallon.
    • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap, may be carried into the stadium along with one of the clear bag options.

    The NFL said exceptions will be made for the medically-necessary items.

    Officials said they hope this new process will make stadium entrance smoother and faster.
