NFL UK Clear Bag Policy

A clear bag policy (along with security screenings) will be in place at all NFL London Games, to provide a safe environment for all our fans. All clear bags entering the stadium must be no larger than 12"x6"x12" and will be inspected closely by security upon entry to the stadium, possibly alongside a pat down. The NFL reserves the right to refuse entry of certain items into the stadium if security believes they are inappropriate.

Exceptions will be made to the size limitations for sealed clear bags containing merchandise purchased at NFL Shop. If you intend to enter the stadium, this bag MUST remain sealed until you pass through stadium screening.

All guests and are prohibited from bringing any bag into the stadium that does not follow the NFL regulations.
