GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers say fans will be allowed to bring in seat backs and seat pads to Lambeau Field.

The NFL unveiled new security policies last week for all stadiums that banned seat cushions and cracked down on bags size and type.

On Friday, Packers officials clarified the new rules for seat cushions and bags.

Seat pads and the traditional bleacher seating with backs, will continue to be allowed.  But seat cushions that have pockets or concealable areas will not be. The seat pads and seat backs have to be of solid construction.

Packers Head of Security Doug Collins says they are looking into increasing seat back rentals at Lambeau.

Fans will be limited on bag options; basically the bag has to be transparent and no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches. 

Women may also bring small clutch purses, but cannot be any larger than a hand. Backpacks, fanny packs and larger bags are not allowed.

Loose blankets, binoculars and cameras are allowed, but custom bags for those items will not be. 

There will also be a special entry gate next to the ticket window for fans whose medical needs require larger carry-ins. All fans with medical devices in larger bags will need to enter there.
