Heading out to the game to cheer on your favorite NFL team this weekend? You’ll want to make sure to leave your backpacks and purses at home, and instead take along one of these clear NFL Approved Stadium Bags.
Why Do I Need NFL Approved Stadium Bags Anyway?
NFL stadiums around the country have increased their security measures by only allowing clear vinyl tote bags, ziptop gallon freezer bags and hand held clutches in the plaza areas, gates, and inside their stadiums. These clear bags will allow stadium security officers to get a good look at what fans are bringing in, without increasing the wait time of 50,000 fans at the gate.
So, What Kind of Bag is Allowed in NFL Stadiums?
The only bags allowed in all 31 NFL stadiums starting in 2013 are…
- Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.”
- One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
Is there A Marketing Opportunity Here?
YES!!! NFL fans need to take a lot of gear with them into the game. Hats and scarves, blankets, signs and foam fingers are part of the game-day ritual, and lugging these things from the parking lot and keeping track of them in the stadium can be tricky. Ask any parent and they’ll tell you the list of things they need to haul for their kids is nearly endless, so for them NOT carrying a bag into the stadium is hardly an option. And then of course there are ladies and all the things carried in purses…I think everyone can see why this new rule can present big opportunity for businesses who want to provide a free and useful giveaway on game day!
And get ready to see this rule expand, rumor has it a similar approved stadium bag rule will be making its way to the NBA, MLB, MLS, NHL and College Football very soon.
So if you are looking for a promotion with value for a luxury suite gift, season ticket holder promotion, tailgate party give away, or other game day related event, PrintGlobe has you covered with the largest selection of NFL Approved Stadium Bags available.
