Arizona Cardinals fans face new stadium security rules

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Cardinals will launch the National Football League's new security rules at the their preseason home opener Saturday.

The new rules don't affect the players, they affect fans at University of Phoenix Stadium and all NFL stadiums. Starting this season, Purses larger than a clutch bag will no longer be allowed into the stadium. Ditto backpacks, coolers, fanny packs, camera bags, computer bags, luggage of any kind and seat cushions. If it doesn't fit in a clear freezer bag it doesn't get into the stadium.

"Everything you need to enjoy the event like binoculars or a camera, you can still bring it in, but not in the bag it is housed in."

The team will provide 12-inch-by-6-by-12 clear bags at the stadium gates.

Robb Corwin with Pride Group, which handles security outside of the stadium, said the new measures will help fans.

"Speeds up the security screening process getting fans into the stadium faster," he said.

The Cardinals said fans will still be able to hold tailgate parties in the parking lots.
