Clarification: FOX 11 reported on Wednesday, August 8, 2013 that "no bags, purses or seat cushions" are allowed inside Lambeau Field.
According the Packers, no bags or purses will be allowed inside Lambeau Field unless they are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and are no larger than 12" by 6" by 12". Small clutches that do not exceed 4.5" by 6.5" are permitted, but subject to search. Cameras and binoculars may continue to be carried into the stadium but must be kept in a clear bag and not in a camera/binocular bag.
Stadium cushions are also not allowed as part of the new policy, however, stadium seats and stadium pads that contain no pockets, zippers or concealed areas, and are 18" wide or smaller are allowed.
An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection, for which a separate entrance gate is located adjacent to the ticket office at the north end of the stadium.
GREEN BAY - The Packers want to minimize any troubles fans have getting into Lambeau Field on game days, the first of which is Friday.
Wednesday, team security officers and Green Bay police reviewed the NFL's new safety procedures.
That includes no bags, purses or seat cushions allowed in from the outside.
Officials say the new rules are for fan protection.
And with fewer things allowed in, they hope it won't take as long to get through security and into the stadium.
"If people bring limited items, and they are in a clear bag, it should process faster than it has in the past cause we know what's coming toward us," said Packers Director of Corporate Security Doug Collins.
"Our number one goal is fan safety and to ensure that this is a pleasurable experience for all that come to the game," said Green Bay Police Lt. Kevin Warych.
The pre-season opener is a home game Friday night at 7:00 against Arizona.
