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.

49ers Mailbag: Can Kyle Shanahan develop QBs? Was Mike McDaniel the secret sauce for the offense? What are the dimensions of an NFL end zone? (Asking for a friend)

The San Francisco 49ers have fallen to 1-2, with the Los Angeles Rams coming to Levi's Stadium on Monday night. It's hard to predict what will happen in that game. You would think the Rams will destroy the struggling 49ers. But last year, we thought the same thing. Instead, the 49ers blew out the Rams and turned their season around. Can history repeat itself? The 49ers' defense is as good as ever. The offense, on the other hand, has not been good. The offensive production has been reminiscent of the days when the 49ers hired defensive-minded head coaches like Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary. This defense is Super Bowl-caliber. Right now, this offense isn't even NFL-caliber. The 49ers can't blame anyone but themselves for their 1-2 start. They are much better than
