Reminder: Bag Policy In Effect For Thursday’s Game

The NFL announced its new bag policy recently for all NFL stadiums and we’d like to remind you that if you’re coming to Thursday night’s preseason game against Jacksonville, you’ll want to pay attention to a couple of bag-related restrictions.

First of all, the best thing to do is either not bring a bag into the Georgia Dome or leave it in your car. Of course, we realize that’s not always an option for many fans, so here are the requirements bags will have to meet to be allowed into the Georgia Dome for all games this year:

  • Bags must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.” (You can get a pretty sweet Falcons-branded clear bag from by clicking here.)
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar) are allowed if you’d rather go that route.
  • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options.
  • 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.

Season-ticket holders: if you’ve given your tickets away for Thursday’s game, please inform your ticket recipients of the NFL’s bag policy as they may not be aware.

Lastly, 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.

We’ve also put together this handy page that explains the policy in further detail.
