In recent years, the NFL adopted a clear bag policy, which prompted many other sports leagues, college teams, music and event venues to follow suit. The goal of this clear bag policy is to help keep everyone safe and speed up security protocols when entering a venue. Find out exactly what size purses and bags you can bring to sporting events and events that enforce the clear bag policy.

What is the Clear Bag Policy?
The clear bag policy was implemented as a way of keeping fans and attendees safer, while also expediting entry into events. This policy limits the size and type of bags allowed into venues, with some exceptions for medical or childcare needs. Not all stadiums and venues have the same policies, so make sure to check your specific location’s policies before attending.
What is the NFL Clear Stadium Bag Policy and How is it Different?
The NFL All Clear policy allows each family member (including children) to bring into the stadium:
- 1 bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and that does not exceed 12" x 6" x 12" OR a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
- 1 small clutch bag or purse, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap – no larger than 4.5” x 6.5”
One clear bag per person and one small clutch purse per person is allowed.
Bags That Do NOT Comply With the Clear Bag Policy:
- Large purses
- Fanny packs
- Diaper bags
- Cinch bags
- Computer bags
- Large camera bags

Are Clear Bags for Concerts Allowed?
There is no clear bag policy for concerts like the NFL has instituted, but it is dependent on the venue’s restrictions. Make sure to double-check the requirements of the venue you are attending so you comply with all rules and regulations. Even if there are no policies, clear bags for concerts always make security checks faster and finding what you need in a dark area much easier.
