CHICAGO (CBS) — Bears fans are being told to leave the bags at home when heading to the next game.
The only bags being allowed into Soldier Field–or any NFL stadium for that matter–are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC. Even then they must be under 12 by 6 by 12 inches in size. Fans can purchase official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com.
But Bob Laskowski, the Bears Director of Stadium Experience, says the bags don’t have to be official team gear. He says fans can also use a one-gallon-size freezer bag to carry belongings.
