The NFL's Bag and Purse Policy remains in place and will be strictly enforced. Backpacks, purses exceeding the size listed below and bags will not be allowed into Soldier Field.

Fans may carry in their pockets items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets and credit cards. They may also continue to carry a blanket or jacket into the stadium.

Every guest may use the following approved specified bags to carry other non-prohibited items into the stadium: One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12" x 6" x 12" or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
