Under the league-wide policy, which will be in effect and enforced Thursday when Atlanta hosts Cincinnati at The Georgia Dome and all other NFL games:

  • The only bags permitted will be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags that do not exceed 12 inches X 12 inches X 6 inches or clear, gallon-sized (Ziploc or similar) zip-top bags. League-approved bags with the Falcons logo will be available in the Pro Shop after Labor Day.
  • Ladies will be allowed to utilize small clutch bags that are 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.
  • Diaper bags will not be permitted. Baby wipes and diapers can be brought in the clear bags that meet the policy’s guidelines.

The NFL Committee on Stadium Security in May unanimously recommended the implementation of this measure to enhance public safety and make it easier for fans to gain access in all stadiums. It was discussed with all clubs at the May League meeting and will be implemented at all NFL stadiums beginning with preseason games.
