All you need to know about the new NFL UK bag policy

The new measures have been introduced for your safety and comfort.

The NFL have announced new safety measures ahead of the NFL UK games, scheduled to start on the 24 September 2017 when the Baltimore Ravens will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

With the four UK American Football games split across London’s Wembley Stadium and Twickenham Stadium, fans are asked to understand the new policy fully before attending the sports events.

To help provide a safer environment for fans, the NFL has implemented a strict bag policy for all 2017 NFL London Games, which will be 100% enforced.

All spectators are prohibited from bringing any bag into the stadium unless it adheres to the NFL regulations. Entry of any non-compliant bag will be refused.

Approved bags must be 30cm x 15cm x 30cm and clear. Approved bags can be purchased through the European NFL shop, are available for home delivery or click & collect on gameday. Fans can also bring a small clutch bag or purse with or without a strap, no larger than 11cm x 16cm. 1-gallon plastic freezer bags are also approved.

The following are not approved: Backpack, binoculars case, bum bag, camera or laptop case, clear backpack, handbag, mesh bag, nappy bag, oversized tote bag, printed pattern plastic bag, seat cushion with pocket, tinted plastic bag.

More information about the NFL bag policy can be found on the NFL UK website.


The NFL London Games take place in September and October 2017, offering fans of the sport the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of their favourites here in the UK.

Fans can even enjoy the events in style with hospitality tickets featuring premium seat tickets, VIP access, pre-game meal with entertainment, complimentary bar, cheerleader appearances, plus much more.
