Levi’s Stadium Bag Policy

Levi’s Stadium Bag Policy

Levi’s Stadium is home to the San Francisco 49ers NFL team at 4900 Marie P DeBartolo Way, Santa Clara, CA 95054. Levi’s Stadium has a clear bag policy guideline that allows completely transparent bags to enter the stadium as long as they don’t exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″. That means clear backpacks, clear fanny packs, clear single compartment bags, and clear purses can all enter the venue, as long as they don’t exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″.


Here is the complete Levi’s Stadium bag policy guideline for your next NFL game or concert at the venue.


How Does the Levi’s Stadium Security Staff Review Bags?

How Does the Levi's Stadium Security Staff Review Bags

Fans coming out to Levi’s Stadium for a sporting event or concert will pass through a metal detector screening before scanning their ticket to enter the stadium. Fans who have a bag with them will go through an additional security inspection of their bag from the staff’s security team. The bag inspection consists of inspecting if the bag is clear, is not too large, and does not contain any prohibited items. If there are no problems with your bags or the things inside, you will get them back to enter the arena for your event.


Consider purchasing a clear single-compartment bag for your next event at Levi’s Stadium! Levi’s Stadium, along with other NFL venues, adopts the clear bag policy. That means that, for the most part, the only bags that can enter the venue have to be clear. The exceptions to the clear bag rule are for things like diaper bags or any ADA-specific bag. Below are approved bags that can enter the venue on game day.


  • A clear single-compartment bag that does not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″
  • A clear backpack
  • 1-gallon size freezer bag/clear plastic bag
  • Clear purses
  • Clear fanny packs
  • Medical bags, Diaper Bags, and any ADA-specific bag
  • Seat cushion
  • A small clutch bag

Is There a Locker or Bag Check Area at Levi’s Stadium?

Is There a Locker or Bag Check Area at Levi's Stadium

If your bag can’t enter Levi’s Stadium, there are bag check areas at Gates A, C, and F to use. As a note, these bag check areas operate on a first come and first served basis, so plan to get to the venue two hours before kickoff to get your bag checked in this area.


If you partake in tailgating in the parking lots before a football game or stadium event and have bags with you, consider leaving them in your car before heading to the stadium. The stadium security staff has a strict clear bag rule, so regular backpacks can’t enter the stadium. The same goes for coolers and mesh bags that can’t enter the venue.
