New bag rules for NFL stadiums

Aug 23, 2013 at 7:45 AM--


If you normally take in a bag to carry your belongings while at Candlestick Park, you may want to become more familiar with the new rules put into place for this season by the NFL. In an effort to increase the safety throughout all of the league's stadiums and to make it quicker and easier to get into the stadiums, the NFL is now strongly encouraging fans not to bing in any types of bags. However, if you do need to do so, there are new requirements for all bags that pass through the stadium gates.

  • Bags must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and cannot exceed 12" x 6" x 12" in size.
  • You can take in one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags.
  • Small clutch bags that are approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
  • Exceptions will be made for any medically necessary items after an inspection at the gate designated for this purpose.

All other bags are prohibited from being taken into a stadium.


The NFL has even started to offer official team branded approved bags/backpacks. These products are available on online team stores. For the San Francisco 49ers, there are four products being offered that meet the new-for-2013 public safety bag requirements.

The Niners will travel to Louisiana to take on a New Orleans team that seems to be getting healthy and rounding into form. Here we discuss the odds and analysis from a betting perspective.

49ers vs. Saints: Studs and Duds from San Francisco's loss to New Orleans

By Chris Wilson
Nov 17, 2020

After jumping out to a 10-point lead and knocking QB Drew Brees out of the game, the 49ers went "No Gas, All Brakes" in their 27-13 loss to the Saints. The San Francisco 49ers had an opportunity to stun the New Orleans Saints after jumping out to a quick lead, but a combination of turnovers, a lackluster offensive performance, and abysmal special teams play allowed the Saints to cruise to an easy victory over a mostly disinterested Niners team and coaching staff. Head coach Kyle Shanahan reached his Promised Land -- the team's annual bye week --

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that NFL owners have approved a proposal (which is all it is, at this point) to expand the playoffs to a 16-team format should regular-season games get canceled due to COVID-19. That could become a possibility with the number of teams that have at least one player on the reserve/COVID-19 list continuing to climb. NFL owners approved a proposal to add two playoff teams - eight in each conference - if regular-season games get cancelled.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 10,
