Football season is right around the corner. Can you feel it? My husband watches every single sport under the sun, but the only sport I actually look forward to watching with him each year is football. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about the NFL or NCAA – I enjoy both equally. While I’m perfectly happy to watch from my couch, we also catch the occasional game in-person.
While it used to be that you could take anything and everything with you into stadiums, this is no longer the case due to safety concerns. Thus, if attending football games is a must for you in the fall, it may well be worth your time to invest in a couple of stadium purses, otherwise known as NFL- and NCAA-compliant clear bags.
The NFL and NCAA have very similar bag policies. You COULD load all of your stuff into a clear 1-gallon Ziploc bag, or you can opt for a clear stadium bag measuring no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″.
If you love attending football games but aren’t really keen on toting around a Ziploc bag, here are a few stylish clear stadium bags that you totally won’t mind carrying with you on Football Saturdays and Sundays this fall.
Stadium Purses You’ll Love
Policy Handbags is a little store that focuses specifically on making stadium purses, so nearly everything they sell is NCAA and NFL-compliant. All of their bags are cute, but if you’re looking for a clear purse, I don’t think you can do much better than The Bare Box, which is cute enough to carry around full-time, assuming you don’t mind everyone knowing what’s in your bag!
Red Leather… Oh, My!
How lovely is this clear stadium bag?! I absolutely love the red leather accents, which prove that you don’t have to sacrifice quality and style for function! You can grab this bag from Oplich Leather Goods on Etsy.
From Game Day to Date Night
If you’re not at all interested in sacrificing your style, you need to check out this Clear Chain Crossbody Bag from SheIn! The price is right at less than $25, and you’ll look just as good using this bag during a night on the town as you will carrying it with you to football games. (Please note, in case it’s not clear from the image, that this is a hardshell case.)
If you want to show your team pride AND be hands-free while tailgating and enjoying the game, check out the clear team crossbody bags at Fanatics! They’re available for both NCAA and NFL teams and the price is right as the bags cost less than $7 each!
Remember: All clear stadium bags must be 12″ x 6″ x 12″ or smaller. This Purseption Thompson Clear Tote just fits the bill at 12″ x 5″ x 10″. Also, both the NCAA and NFL allow you to also bring a small clutch (4″ x 6″), which is included with this bag. I love two-in-one deals!
If you really want to be hands-free, consider purchasing a clear backpack to take with you to the stadium! This Fuzzy Heart Clear Mini Backpack from Forever21 is pretty small but should be large enough to hold all of your essentials. The best part? You’ll look cute carrying all of that stuff around!
The Gold Chain is Everything
The gold chain really elevates this clear stadium bag, I think! At $25, the Arizona Jelly Crossbody Bag might be a bit pricey for JCPenney, but they have constant sales so look for this one to get marked down!
I Found it at Bloomie’s
This Semi-Round Clear Crossbody Bag from SheIn is anything but boring! This clear bag is ideal for those days when you’re planning on going straight from the football game to the club.
Nobody will mistake your clear stadium bag for theirs when you get a monogrammed bag! For this small stadium bag, you can choose the color and the monogram (of course). The crossbody strap is removable, so you can also carry the bag as a clutch. You can grab this bag at Sassy Classy Monogram on Etsy.
Do Tell: Do you have your eye on any of these stadium purses?
