Screening Procedures for Spectators

Security screening at Sun Life Stadium will be significantly heightened for the Super Bowl. Many items usually permitted in NFL events will not be allowed into the Super Bowl. The National Football League and the Police Department strongly recommend that spectators minimize the number and size of all items carried into the Stadium.



All items carried by spectators will be carefully inspected and potentially not allowed into the Stadium. Spectators are urged to bring nothing larger than a very small purse or bag. The NFL, Sun Life Stadium and the Miami Dade Police Department will not hold prohibited or excluded items for spectators.

Items purchased in Fan Plaza on Game Day will be allowed in the stadium.


Prohibited items and items determined to be not appropriate for entry into the Stadium will be the responsibility of the ticket holder and cannot be accepted or checked by the NFL, Sun Life Stadium or the Miami Dade Police Department. We urge spectators to secure these items in vehicles or hotel rooms.

The cooperation, patience and understanding of spectators is greatly appreciated by the National Football League, Sun Life Stadium and the Miami Dade Police Department. The cooperation of all spectators will greatly aid in the level of security provided to all in attendance at these events.
