CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The National Football League’s new bag policy will be in effect for Miami Hurricanes home games at Sun Life Stadium.

The new bag policy, which was established with fan safety and expedited entry in mind, places limits on the size and type of bags which may be brought into Sun Life Stadium. Fans may continue to carry pockets items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets and credit cards.  As part of this initiative, each season-ticket account will receive one (1) approved bag which they may use at their convenience.

Sun Life Stadium security personnel will be flexible at the gates as it relates to the new bag policy for Miami's first two home games: Friday vs. FAU and Sept. 7 vs. Florida.

Following the Florida game, bags will be mailed to season ticket holders. Each season ticket account will receive one bag. 

Additionally, fans wishing to purchase approved bags can visit the team store at Sun Life Stadium.

The bag policy was unanimously recommended in May by the NFL Committee on Stadium Security and will be put into place at all NFL stadiums this season beginning with preseason games.

Below are the NFL approved bags fans may carry into the stadium:

  • One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12” by 6” and 12” or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, fans may also carry in a small clutch bag or purse 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 Gate E designated for this purpose.
  • Diapers and wipes can be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Fans will continue to be able to enjoy their tailgate activities in the parking lots and to do so with greater safety and the knowledge that their entry into the stadium will be smoother and faster. They also will continue to be able to carry items allowed into the stadium, such as binoculars, cameras, and smart phones.

The NFL, the Miami Dolphins and the University of Miami are committed to protecting public safety at Sun Life Stadium. This is an important step in achieving that.  For more information on the policy please visit NFL.com/allclear.
