The NFL's Clear Bag Policy
In order to expedite the process of entering the stadium, the NFL has created the Clear Bag Policy. Under this policy, fans are limited to the size and type of bags they can bring into the stadium in order for security to check items more quickly.
The implementation of this policy is enhancing public safety and is making it so much easier for fans to enter the stadium, get to their seats and enjoy the game. Bags that do not meet this criteria will not be permitted into the stadium.
Now, ladies, I know what you're thinking. What about my purse?? Well, the NFL does have a very small exception regarding purses, but you must keep in mind only one bag is permitted in per person. So if you do opt to carry a small purse meeting the standards below, what you bring in must fit in that bag.
