NFL International Series announce strict No Bag policy for 2017 fixtures

NFL bans bags from London games 

[4th September] The NFL has today announced that to help provide a safer environment for all fans, NFL will be implementing their strict bag policy for all 2017 NFL London Games which will be 100% enforced at both Wembley Stadium and Twickenham Stadium.

The NFL’s bag policy, which The NFL Committee on Stadium Security unanimously recommended in May 2013 will enhance public safety and make it easier for fans to gain access to all stadiums.

This policy will ensure that fans will 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.

If for any reason (medical or other) fans require a bag that does not adhere to this policy, they are encouraged to contact the support teams prior to gameday at for the NFL London Games at Wembley, and on 020 8831 6589 for Twickenham games.
