Prohibited items and bag policy: The Broncos' stadium bag policy will be in effect for all training camp practices. Please see below for details or visit Sports Authority Field at Mile High's website for more information.
• Each fan may carry one bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC, no larger than 12" x 6" x 12" or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc or similar).

• Diapers and wipes can be carried in a clear bag. Diaper bags are not permitted.
• Remove any jackets or other large, bulky items from your bag and carry these in hand. When the contents of your bag are clearly visible, staff can screen bags without requiring any contents to be removed. If blankets or other items conceal the contents of a bag, staff must request that they be removed in order for screening to take place, delaying the process.
