Clear Bag Policy
The Titans strongly encourage fans not to bring any type of bag to Nissan Stadium to expedite entry at the gates, but if you need to bring personal items to the game, please familiarize yourself with the NFL’s clear bag policy.
To provide a safer environment for the public and speed fan entry, the Tennessee Titans enforce a league-wide NFL policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought in to the stadium.
Clear bags must be 12″ x 12″ x 6″ or smaller.
Non-transparent bags can be no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5,” even if you are placing it inside your larger clear bag. Please Note: Non-transparent bags are still subject to inspection by security personnel at the gates.
Clear bags are available at the Titans Locker Room next to Gate 1 and online at

Frequently Asked Questions
Why did the NFL and its clubs adopt this policy?
The league and clubs review their public safety and stadium security policies every year looking for ways to improve them. The Committee on Stadium Security and Fan Conduct leads this review and obtains a wide range of information to assist in doing so. The committee strongly believed that it made sense to adjust our policy to enhance public safety and make stadium access more efficient by limiting the size and style of bags carried into the stadium. This was reviewed with the clubs at the May league meeting and will be implemented by every team.
This proactive measure both will enhance safety inside and outside the stadium and speed the security screening process for all NFL fans. The public deserves to be in a safe, secure environment. This is about both safety and improving the overall fan experience.
How does the new policy improve public safety?
As an organization, our goal is to create a first-class experience for our fans on gamedays. Ensuring the safety and security of all Nissan Stadium guests is top priority. The clear bag is easily and quickly searched and greatly reduces faulty bag searches. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign.
How many bags can each person bring into the stadium?
One large clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or the 12″ by 6″ by 12″ clear bag – plus a small clutch no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″. The larger clear bag must be a standard 12″ by 6″ by 12″ made of clear PVC vinyl and is easily searched. The one-gallon Ziploc bag is readily available, inexpensive and easily searched. The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items and also is easily searched.
Can fans carry cameras, binoculars, smart phones or tables separately from what they put in a clear bag?
Yes. Binoculars or a phone or camera can be carried into the stadium in its own bag, so long as the bag is 4.5″ x 6.5″ or smaller. Security personnel may ask you to remove your camera/binoculars from the case before reaching the gate for screening, to expedite entry. Camera and binoculars cases larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″ are not permitted.
Are seat cushions allowed to be carried into the stadium?
No, they are not due to the large size and because the way seat cushions are constructed would allow them to be used to conceal a potentially dangerous device.
Why haven’t more stadiums and arenas adopted this kind of policy?
The NFL is the only professional sports league that has a comprehensive set of best practices for stadium security certified by the Department of Homeland Security as anti-terrorism technologies under the United States SAFETY Act. As such, other professional sports leagues look to the NFL as the leader in stadium and large venue security. Other stadiums have watched the NFL closely and followed, to the extent possible, security enhancements pioneered by the NFL. We anticipate that many more stadiums and arenas will soon adopt this policy.
If I have certain items that I need to bring into the stadium for medical reasons, what do I do?
Medically necessary items are permitted at all stadium gates. For a list of approved child care items, please see CHILD CARE PRODUCTS above. If you are in need of a separate security screening, you can notify any of our security staff members who will be happy to assist.
