NFL to limit bags brought into stadiums

Last Modified: Thursday, June 13, 2013 2:09 PM

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The NFL is limiting the size and kind of bags fans bring into stadiums, beginning with preseason games. The restrictions are designed to enhance security and speed stadium entry.

With the exception of necessary medical items, only clear plastic, vinyl or thick plastic handbags no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches will be allowed.

One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags also will be OK, as will small bags about the size of someone's hand, with or without a handle or strap, that are in a clear plastic bag.

Banned items will include purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage, computer bags and camera bags.
