MetLife Stadium: Keep Yo’ Bags at Home

If you’re planning to make the trip down to East Rutherford for Penn State’s season opener vs. Syracuse at MetLife Stadium, be advised about the NFL’s new policy concerning bags (hint: it doesn’t like them) and what is allowed inside the stadium.

These new polices are part of the NFL’s plan to enhance its safety measures. This new policy bans small and large coolers, purses larger than a clutch bag, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, seat cushions, and camera bags. Any bag exceeding 12” x 6” x 12” will be prohibited from the stadium. If you do feel the need to bring a bag with you, the bag must not exceed 12” x 6” x 12” and must be clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC. Small clutch bags no larger than 4.5” x 6.5” are also permitted in the stadium.

This policy aligns with one Penn State put into place earlier this year. Penn State is one of a few Big Ten schools who are putting more emphasis on safety and security. MetLife officials are encouraging fans to adhere to the new rules that are in place to ensure easy entry into the stadium confines.

Bag or not, the season can’t come soon enough.
