MBCR is reminding Patriots fans that new July Fourth-like security restrictions at Gillette Stadium mean they'll be turned away if they try to get into the stadium with largeish bags Friday night. And don't think you can just leave that stuff on the train to the game, because you can't. So think like you're heading out for a night of clubbing instead of a night cheering on (maybe) Brady:
Purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, diaper bags, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage, computer bags and camera bags are prohibited from the stadium. Fans with prohibited items will not be allowed access to entering the stadium plaza, gates, or queue lines.
Each person can bring a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag or a clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag that does not exceed 12" x 6" x 12". In addition to the clear bag, fans can bring a small clutch bag no larger than 4.5" x 6.5" with or without a strap.
Items that can be carried by hand or in pockets, such as binoculars, cameras, phones and blankets are allowed in the stadium. A separate entrance will be set up for fans carrying bags containing medically necessary items.
