The New York Giants today announced today an NFL policy that limits the size and types of bags and purses that may be brought into MetLife Stadium for Giants' home games.
The NFL Committee on Stadium Security in May unanimously recommended the implementation of this measure to continue to enhance public safety. It was discussed with all clubs at the May league meeting and will be implemented at all NFL stadiums this preseason.
The Giants are encouraging fans to not bring any type of bags, but outlined today what is permissible. Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bags into the stadium:
One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12 by 6 by 12 OR:
- A one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar) AND
- In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, fans may also carry in a small clutch bag, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
- An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at the Stadium entry gates.
Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, seat cushions, computer bags, camera bags, binocular cases or any bag larger than the permissible size.
Please Note: The Giants distributed team logo clear bags , which meet the NFL's new carry-in policy specifications, to their season ticket holders. Each season ticket holder received one bag for every two tickets on their respective account.
