TIAA Bank Field Bag Policy

TIAA Bank Field (formerly known as EverBank Field) is home to the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team at 1 TIAA Bank Field Dr, Jacksonville, FL 32202. The TIAA Bank Field clear bag policy allows clear, PVC, or vinyl bags that don’t exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″ into the arena. Fans can also bring in small clutch bags that fit inside your hand.


Below are the types of bags fans can bring to a home game at TIAA Bank Field. I also share my bag recommendation on what to bring to the game. Finally, there is an affiliate link to Amazon on this page.


Approved Bags

Fans should know that all NFL venues are adopting the clear bag policy. Therefore, getting a clear bag for a Jags game or another football game is the way to go if you need to bring a bag to a match. Below are the types of bags that fans can bring into EverBank Field for a game or concert.


  • A clear single-compartment tote bag that does not exceed 12″ x 6″ x” 12″
  • One-gallon clear bag/Ziploc bag/ freezer bag
  • ADA-specific bags
  • Medical bags (However, bring in a clear bag, if possible. Otherwise, you will need to reach out to the Jacksonville Jaguars staff weeks before your game to let them know you will be bringing in a medical bag into the game that is not clear.)
  • A small clutch bag that does not exceed 4.5″ x 6.5″ (Essentially, you want this type of bag to fit the size of your hand)
  • Clear diaper bags


My Clear Bag Recommendation + Experience

I’ve brought my clear fanny pack to several football stadiums without any issues. My clear fanny pack is 11″ x 6.5″ x 5.9″ in size, which means it is below the size limit. Second, the bag itself is clear, which means that it passes the clear bag policy that venues have today. Third, I like the look and feel of the bag, so I tend to recommend it for people looking to bring a bag the game.


Below is a video of me going into this in more detail.

These lockers come on a first-come and first-served basis, so plan to arrive two hours before kickoff to get one of these spaces for your bag if you know you can’t bring it into the stadium.


If you plan on tailgating in the parking lots before a football game or concert, plan to leave those bags in a car before walking to the stadium. The NFL clear bag policy states that traditional backpacks and coolers can’t enter the venue, so leave them in your car before walking to the stadium gates.
