Ladies, does your bag match your shoes?
Though many female fans used to make this sacred check before they stepped out of the house to stand in the bitter cold and cheer on their favorite team, due to an update in NFL policy, it’s no longer on the list of last-minute checks that female sports fans are making on their way out the door. Rather than being careful to achieve the perfect look, handbags and purses are being abandoned in favor of an expedited pre-game security check.
In their ongoing commitment to safety and security, many NCAA football stadiums have adopted similar practices to the NFL’s clear bag policy for the 2015 season, as well. So, what do you need to know to ensure that your customers and football fans are prepared for game day?
In the majority of football stadiums, prohibited items include: backpacks, opaque handbags larger than a clutch, fanny packs, and cinch bags. However, just because sportsanistas will be limited in their accessory choices on the day of the big game doesn’t mean that handbags need to be completely abandoned. The following items are permissible following the NFL’s guidelines:
- Bags that are clear plastic or vinyl and measure no larger than 12 x 6 x 12
- One gallon clear plastic freezer bag
- Small clutch bags approximately the size of a hand
