Football fans should probably leave bags at home when they go to see a game at an NFL stadium for the 2013 season. The policy takes effect with preseason games.
"The NFL strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags," the league said on its website.
You will not be allowed to bring in purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches.
“Our fans deserve to be in a safe and secure environment,” NFL vice president and chief security officer Jeffrey Miller said in a statement. “Public safety is our top priority. This will make the job of checking items much more efficient and effective. We will be able to deliver a better and quicker experience at the gates and also provide a safer environment. We appreciate our fans’ cooperation.”
Here is a list of what is permissible:
