Security screening at U.S. Bank Stadium will be significantly heightened for Super Bowl LII.

Screening on gameday begins at 1:00 p.m. CT. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid delays and assist in the entrance of all spectators. Fans should dress warmly as they will be outside prior to passing through security.

To provide a safe environment and to expedite fan entry into the stadium, the NFL limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the stadium. Visit for more details. All items carried by spectators will be carefully inspected and potentially not permitted into the stadium.

Consistent with all NFL games, the NFL strongly encourages fans not to bring any type of bag to the Super Bowl, but if necessary, those outlined below are permissible:

  • 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)
  • Small clutch bags, 4.5” x 6.5”, with or without a handle or strap, can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after thorough inspection at a gate designated for this purpose

Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: purses or clutches larger than 4.5” x 6.5”, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags/draw string bags that are not clear or exceed 12” x 6” x 12”, luggage of any kind, computer bags, binocular cases and camera bags, and large traditional seat cushions that have pockets, zippers, compartments or covers.
