  • FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Bring yourself to the game. Leave the cooler and backpack at home.

    The NFL is tightening stadium security starting this preseason, limiting the size and type of bags fans can bring to the game.

    The restrictions are designed to enhance security while speeding up entry into stadiums.

    With the exception of medically necessary items, only clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches will be allowed. One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags also will be OK, as will small clear plastic bags approximately the size of someone’s hand, with or without a handle or strap.

    One of those clear bags and a small clutch bag will be allowed per person.

    Binoculars, cameras, and smartphones also will be permitted.

    Banned items will include purses larger than a clutch bag; coolers; briefcases; backpacks; fanny packs; cinch bags; seat cushions; luggage; computer bags; and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

    The league is encouraging fans not to bring any bags to games.
