What do these items have in common: Frisbees, noisemakers, coolers, tripods, umbrellas and strollers?
They are all on the list of items you will not be allowed to bring into University of Phoenix Stadium for Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX.
At a Wednesday briefing featuring Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, Super Bowl officials and law-enforcement leaders talked about a planning process that has been more than a year in the works to guard against a variety of dangers connected with the mega-event.
“I’m confident we will have a safe and secure and successful event,” Johnson said.
Officials did not disclose how many law-enforcement and security officers will be working the game, but said the cooperation of a watchful public is crucial. The campaign “If you see something, say something,” urges fans to report suspicious behavior or objects.
And leave those big purses at home or in your hotel room. Items that a fan may take into the stadium include a clear plastic bag not exceeding 12” x 6” x 12” and one small “clutch bag” not larger than 4.5” x 6.5”. Fans also are prohibited from bringing food and beverages.
