Non-clear diaper bags are prohibited. A clear diaper bag (no larger than 12” X 6” X 12”) is permitted. Each member of a family, including children, would be allowed to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse into the stadium.

Walk Through Metal Detectors
The Mercedes-Benz Superdome uses walk-through metal detectors at all entry gates to enhance safety and security.
Please have all approved clear bags open and ready for screening. Express lanes are available at all entrances for guest without bags.
The State of Louisiana bans the possession of guns on the premises.
PARKING POLICY — NFL VEHICLE SCREENING
Due to increased security measures at all NFL stadiums, vehicles parking in certain areas of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome parking garages will be subject to security screenings at every Saints home game. ASM Global implements enhanced vehicle screening of all vehicles that pass through and park within close proximity of the building. Enhanced vehicle screening consist of an EOD canine sweep. All EOD canine searches will take place outside of the parking garages prior to entry.
Only vehicles parking within close proximity to the stadium will be subject to the enhanced EOD canine search. This would include guests who are parking in the A, B, and C lanes of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. To assist with traffic ingress, any guests with D, E, or F parking placards will be directed to the second entrance of each garage to bypass the vehicle screening. These vehicles will be directed around the enhanced vehicle screening.
All vehicles that need screening will have parking placards, which clearly designate the need for enhanced screening. These vehicles will have a yellow star on the right hand corner of their placard. The guest’s parking placard also has language on the bottom of their pass, which reads, “Vehicle is subject to screening by security upon entry.”
The safety of our fans, players and employees is our highest priority. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the New Orleans Saints service department at (504) 731-1700.
