Cardinals vs. Cowboys sold out, team rolling out new NFL rules for bags

Yet another sellout at University of Phoenix Stadium

The Arizona Cardinals announced on Thursday that their preseason home opener on Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys is a sellout. It is the 74th consecutive sellout at home. As such, it will allow the game to be broadcasted locally on television. ABC 15 will air the game.

There is also a reminder for fans attending the game. The NFL changed its policies on the types of things that will be allowed into the stadium.

With kickoff set for 1:30 PM, the main stadium gates will open at Noon on Saturday.

To provide a safer environment for the public and expedite entry into University of Phoenix Stadium, fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container into stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12."

  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar). The team will have these bags available at University of Phoenix Stadium gates on game day.

  • Small clutch bags no larger than 4.5" x 6.5" in size, with or without a handle or strap, may be carried into the stadium along with one of the clear bag options.

Medically necessary items, after proper inspection by security staff, will continue to be allowed inside the stadium.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, seat cushions with pockets, computer bags and camera bags.

Fans will continue to be able to enjoy their tailgate activities in the parking lots and to do so with greater safety and the knowledge that their entry into the stadium will be smoother and faster. In recent years the Cardinals have enhanced their already comprehensive safety plans with the additional measures such as pat downs, bag checks and metal detectors.

Fans should be prepared to open their bags for inspection and may be asked by security staff to shift and possibly remove the contents. Non-approved bags will be denied entry into the stadium and fans will be asked to return the bag to their vehicle or dispose of it. There are no lockers outside of the stadium to store items nor can any items be held by staff members.
