PBS reminding fans of new bag policy

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

In an effort to improve public safety and expedite fan entry into the stadium, football fans may need to leave some items at home on game day.

Beginning this season, the NFL is implementing a new policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be carried into stadiums.

Officials with Paul Brown Stadium are reminding fans of the new policy in anticipation of Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The following will be allowed, according to NFL.com

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12." (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags will be available through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com/allclear)
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
  • 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 bags.
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

The new rules will accompany the pat downs and metal detectors fans have already come to expect when entering the stadium.
