To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into stadiums, we have implemented an NFL policy that will be used at Pro Football Hall of Fame Field for the Enshrinement and Game that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums. For more, please visit:


The Pro Football Hall of Fame adheres to NFL Best Practices, thus security procedures used during all NFL games will be used at the NFL/Hall of Fame Game. As you arrive at the gate for your security check, you and your belongings will be screened for prohibited items. This will include a limited body pat down/hand wand procedure.

Due to enhanced NFL security procedures the only bags, packages or containers permitted to be carried by fans as they enter the stadium are the following:

  • An officially licensed clear Hall of Fame or NFL logo bag measuring 12” x 6” x 12”. These bags are available for purchase at
  • A one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziplock bag or similar).
  • A small women’s clutch bag approximately the size of a woman’s hand, with or without a strap.
  • Medically necessary items that will be admitted after being screened at the appropriate gate.

PLEASE PLAN ON ALLOWING EXTRA TIME TO ENTER THE STADIUM. We thank you for your patience and understanding to ensure the safety of all guests. Prohibited items discovered during inspections will not be allowed in the Stadium. You may return prohibited items to your vehicle or dispose of them at the gate.

By presenting your ticket and entering the Stadium you consent to such searches and waive any related claims that you might have against the NFL, its member clubs, the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Stadium landlord, or their agents. If you elect not to consent to the searches you will be denied entry into the Stadium.

Note: Please review your tickets for admittance to the proper gate. All guests and permissible items will be subject to a physical screen and inspection upon entry. This is a non-smoking stadium.
