Canes adopt NFL policy



The University of Miami sent out a release Wednesday saying that The NFL’s new bag policy will be in effect for all seven 2013 home games at Sun Life Stadium.

The bag policy places limits on the size and type of bags that can be brought in the stadium.

The bag policy was unanimously recommended in May by the NFL Committee on Stadium Security.

Fans may carry into the stadium one bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12-by-6-by-12 inches or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag.

In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, fans may also carry a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.

Exceptions will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at Gate E.
