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.
