Seahawks to start selling bags that comply with NFL safety policy


Seahawks Pro Shops will start selling bags, which comply with the new safety policy.

SEATTLE - Seattle Seahawks will start selling bags at their Pro Shops in August, which comply with the safety policy at CenturyLink Field.

Last week, officials announced a new policy, which included what type of bags, items and clothing that are and are not OK to bring into the stadium.

On Tuesday, NFL Chief Security Officer Jeff Miller addressed the change of policy that will affect each of the NFL’s 32 clubs.

"The bottom line is that our fans deserve to be in a safe and secure environment," Miller said. "It is the No. 1 priority of our owners and Commissioner [Roger] Goodell."

Fans are still allowed to bring all of the same type of items permitted to bring before, but the only change comes in the type of container. Packs may not exceed a size of 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches and must be made of clear plastic, vinyl or PVC. The only exception comes with small clutch hand bags, which may still be carried into the stadium.
