Jags announce new bag policy

Posted Jul 24, 2013

Jaguars help enhance public safety and improve stadium access for fans.

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into EverBank Field, the Jaguars announced an NFL policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the stadium.

The NFL Committee on Stadium Security in May unanimously recommended the implementation of this measure that will enhance public safety and make it easier for fans to gain access in all stadiums. It was discussed with all clubs at the May league meeting and will be implemented at all NFL stadiums beginning with preseason games.

The Jaguars strongly encourage fans to not bring any type of bags, but outlined below is what is permissible. Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:

 

  • 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 are available through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com), or

 

  • 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, may be carried into the stadium along with one of the clear bag options.

 

  • Any medically necessary items must be pre-approved by the Jaguars. Please contact (904) 633-2000 (option 1) or myExperience@jaguars.com to be considered for approval. All items will be subject to proper inspection at entry gate.

 

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, seat cushions, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

For additional information, go to www.jaguars.com/allclear or NFL.com/allclear.

“We agree with the league’s efforts to make sure the game day experience is safe and as convenient as possible,” Jaguars President Mark Lamping said. “This policy will expedite fans’ entrance into the stadium on game day while maintaining the security and safety for everyone.”

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.

In recent years the Jaguars have enhanced the already comprehensive safety plans with the additional measures such as pat downs, bag checks and metal detectors. 

“Our fans deserve to be in a safe and secure environment,” said Jeffrey Miller, NFL vice president and chief security officer. “Public safety is our top priority. This will make the job of checking items much more efficient and effective.  We will be able to deliver a better and quicker experience at the gates and also provide a safer environment. We appreciate our fans’ cooperation.”

This public safety measure is being successfully used at other large venues. The University of Michigan, Penn State University and Michigan State University do not permit any bags, while the TD Garden in Boston only permits clutch bags.

Working personnel, including media, will continue to enter NFL stadiums through designated gates where they will be subject to screening and bag inspections already in effect at all stadiums.
