NFL Enhanced Public Safety Policy Starts Saturday In Miami At Dolphins-Buccaneers Game

By on August 19, 2013 at 11:25 am

Miami, FL – The NFL has instituted a new safety policy for all stadiums this year that will make the security process more efficient and effective.  The Miami Dolphins are committed to ensuring the fan experience is second to none, and the safety of our guests at Sun Life Stadium is essential to maintaining this experience.

The NFL policy starts in Miami with Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Sun Life Stadium and continues throughout the season.  It affects the type and size of bags that are permitted into the stadium — not the items that fans normally need to bring to a game. Fans may continue to carry pockets items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets and credit cards.  As part of this initiative, all Season Ticket Members will receive NFL approved bags which they may use at their convenience. One (1) bag will be sent for every two seats in an account. Additionally, fans wishing to purchase Miami Dolphin branded approved bags can visit the team store at Sun Life Stadium.

Below are the NFL approved bags fans may carry into the stadium:

  • One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12” by 6” and 12” or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, fans may also carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
    • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at Gate E designated for this purpose.
  • Diapers and wipes can be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.

Bag Policy

Fans will continue to be able to tailgate with their usual items in the parking lots. Items such as smart phones, binoculars and cameras will still be permitted into the stadium. This policy is meant to speed up the process of entering the stadium along with increasing security measures.

The NFL and the Miami Dolphins are committed to protecting public safety at Sun Life Stadium.  This is an important step in achieving that.  For more information on the policy please visit NFL.com/allclear.
