SoFi Stadium Bag Policy

SoFi Stadium is home to two NFL teams, the LA Chargers, and the LA Rams, at 1001 Stadium Dr, Inglewood, CA 90301. SoFi Stadium has a clear bag policy allowing fans to bring in a clear single-compartment bag that does not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”. Traditional backpacks, suitcases, and coolers can’t come into the stadium with fans. The only exception to the clear bag rule is if fans want to bring in small clutch bags that don’t exceed 4” x 6” in size.
