Banner Policy

Purpose

To allow stadium patrons to express their support of teams and/or players by displaying banners within the stadium.

Scope

This policy applies to all patrons. Stadium Operations Staff and Game Day employees are prohibited from displaying banners. All banners must comply with NFL guidelines.

Policy

Banners must be football related, contain no commercial messages logos or political endorsements. Banners should contain no offensive or obscene language. Banners which contain graphic depictions must be in good taste and contain no depictions that would offend or embarrass other patrons. In general, banners should be in good taste. Stadium Management reserves the right to remove any and all banners not in compliance with stadium policy or which, in their sole judgment, may be offensive to others.

Stadium Management reserves the right to approve all banners. In addition, Stadium Management reserves the right to prohibit the displaying of banners due to lack of available space, banner size, materials or message content. Patrons will not be permitted to display more than one banner.

Stadium Management also reserves the right to determine where a banner may be displayed and to move a banner from an area where it is being displayed to another area. Patrons may not always be able to display their banner in their seating area due to a lack of available space.

No banners expressing support of visiting teams may be affixed to or displayed on any surface. Hand held signs or posters that are in compliance with the balance of this policy are acceptable.

Hand held signs or banners in the stands must comply with the rules governing message content and may not be affixed to metal rods, wooden posts or any other material that could cause injury to other patrons. Fans displaying signs or banners should not obstruct the view of other patrons.

Stadium Management reserves the right to confiscate banners and/or signs that are not in compliance with this policy or which obstruct the view of others.

Banners may be displayed in the following areas:

  • On the field wall surrounding the playing surface. No banners may be displayed directly behind the goal posts or over any graphics on the end zone pads or sideline walls.
  • On the railing in front of the club seating areas and upper end zone sections.
  • On the railing in front of the seating section in the upper bowl except in sections 501, 502, 504, 506, 508, 548, 550, 552 and 554.
  • On the wall behind the seating sections around the rim of the upper bowl.

No banner may be displayed on the outer rim of the upper deck or from suite windows due to the risk of injury to patrons seated in the lower bowl.

Dimensions, Materials and Mounting Instructions

All banners should be constructed of either vinyl, cloth or other lightweight materials.

Field wall surrounding the playing surface - Banners displayed on the field wall of the lower level must be no longer or wider than 10 feet and no higher than 5 feet. Banners should have grommets in each top corner and one located in the center. Banners must be affixed by twine, non-metallic ties or other non-metallic material. These specifications would allow the banner to be affixed to the anchor post for the field wall railings, which are five feet apart. Banners may not be taped or glued to surfaces surrounding the field walls.

Railing in front of the club seating areas and upper end zone - Banners displayed on the railings in front of the club seating area and upper end zone should either be 5 feet or 10 feet long and be no more than 30 inches high. Banners 5 feet long should have a grommet in each of the four corners to permit the patron mounting it to tie to the anchor posts, which are five feet apart. Banners that are 10 feet long should have a grommet in each of the four corners, as well as one in the center of the top and bottom. Banners displayed in these areas should be tied at the top and bottom to prevent the banner from blowing upward and obstructing other patrons' sight lines. Banners displayed in these areas should never be mounted on uneven railing sections around steps and stairwells and should only be mounted in horizontal sections.

Railing in front of seating sections in upper bowl - Banners placed on the railings in front of the seating sections in the upper bowl should either be 5 feet or 10 feet long and no more than 30 inches high. Banners 5 feet long should have a grommet in each of the four corners to permit the patron mounting it to tie to the anchor posts, which are five feet apart. Banners that are 10 feet long should have a grommet in each of the four corners, as well as one in the center of the top and bottom. Banners displayed in these areas should be tied at the top and bottom to prevent the banner from blowing upward and obstructing other patrons' sight lines. Banners displayed in these areas should never be mounted on uneven railing sections around steps and stairwells and should only be mounted in horizontal sections.

Banners may not be displayed on the railing in front of the following seating sections in the upper bowl. The railings in these sections are on the outer rim of the upper deck. Displaying banners in these areas would pose a risk of injury to patrons seated in the lower bowl. Prohibited sections are: 501, 502, 504, 506, 508, 548, 550, 552 and 554.

Wall behind seating sections around the rim of upper bowl - Banners may be displayed on the back wall of the upper deck and to the rear of the seating sections. These banners may not be longer than 10 feet and higher than 4 feet. Due to a concern for patron safety, these banners may not be affixed to the stadium by attempting to tie off or hang them from the rim of the stadium. The only approved method of attaching the banner to the wall is with tape.
