A Mom’s Guide To Neyland Stadium


Is there anything cuter than your entire family decked out in orange and white, headed to a Tennessee game? The answer is, well, probably not! We know it can be overwhelming tackling a college game day with littles in a place that seats over 100,000 people. That’s why we’ve put together a list of must-know information for taking your kids to a game at Neyland Stadium.

Clear bag policy

  • Diaper bags do not count as medically necessary items. The contents of your diaper bag must be in a CLEAR bag, no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″. 
  • You can take a small clutch (doesn’t have to be clear) if it is no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″

If you’re breastfeeding and/or pumping

  • You can bring your pump, but it will need to be checked at a gate as a medical item. 
  • Visit a first aid station within the stadium for access to a lactation room. 

Must-know information

  • Everyone must have a ticket regardless of age. Yes, even babies. 
  • Strollers are not allowed.

  • You can not leave the stadium and be readmitted. 
  • Gates open two hours before kickoff.
  • Roads begin closing around the stadium three hours before kickoff.
