MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Vikings fans were excited for Sunday’s home opener but not all fans were thrilled with the Metrodome’s new policy on bags in the stadium.

Despite several advanced warnings through social media and other venues, many fans didn’t adhere to the bag policy and had to pass through security gates before they could enter the football game. The NFL has issued a new stadium security policy which calls for fans to leave large bags, purses and backpacks at home.

If fans are going to bring anything into the Metrodome for Vikings games, it must fit into a one gallon Ziploc bag. The fans who weren’t informed were given those bags at the entrances to the game, causing delays for many to get in.

Some even missed the Vikings opening scoring drive, which was one of the few highlights in a 31-27 loss to the Cleveland Browns. The Vikings are now 0-3 as they head to London this week to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.
