NFL bag policy for 49ers-Cowboys at Levi's Stadium

The return of 49ers football at Levi's Stadium means it is time to remember the NFL's bag policy. Here is a rundown of the policy, and what is allowed in the stadium.

The San Francisco 49ers host their first home game of the 2015 preseason schedule, which means the NFL's bag policy is a thing once again. There was some controversy when it first came out, but things have generally quieted down. Nonetheless, for those of you attending Sunday's game, or attending any 49ers game this year, it is important to remember the NFL's bag policy. Levi's Stadium re-posted it on Saturday, and I figured I would follow suit.

The NFL's bag policy prevents all bags, with the following exceptions:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12." (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags are available through club merchandise outlets or at, or
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
  • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand (4.5" x 6.5")
  • Seat cushions
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

The stadium will also allow the following in for games:

  • Blankets
  • Cameras with 3-inch lenses or shorter  (no lights, tripods, selfie-sticks or monopods)
  • Diaper bags accompanying a child
  • Flags (No Poles)
  • Food and fruit (must be cut into pieces).
  • Plastic bottles (sealed) and thermoses (no alcohol)
  • Seat cushions
  • Strollers (allowed in stadium, but cannot be stored at your seat - they offer some kind of storage for it)
  • Umbrellas (provided they do not obstruct someone's view)

Levi's Stadium posted this infographic to make it fairly clear what people can and cannot bring in to the stadium:
