Green Bay, Seattle, Indianapolis and New England; they’re all that’s left! The AFC and NFC Championship games are on the horizon, and two of these four teams will be Super Bowl bound in a matter of days! But what about you? Will you be joining them in Arizona?

If you haven’t already made plans to join the exclusive club of Super Bowl-goers, the time is now and we have your access below. And if you have already secured your spot at the game of all games, the following information is for you.

I’m about to let you in on the facts… what you should bring to the Super Bowl and what you should leave at home.

Considering the massive crowds the Super Bowl draws in, it’s only right the NFL cranks up security precautions in order to ensure the safety of each fan in attendance. With that being said, there are strict regulations regarding items that will be permitted and prohibited from being brought inside the stadium.

For example, while that hand-painted “I [heart] Tom Brady” picket fence sign might be creative and a hit with your fellow fans, it unfortunately won’t be invited to join you in the stadium on game day.

Read on for more examples, and complete lists of prohibited items and what you should bring to the game!

The Super Bowl Fan Guide of What to Bring

The following items are permitted into the stadium on game day and are encouraged in order to have the ultimate fan experience:

  • YOUR TICKET! Whatever you do, don’t forget it!
  • Smart phone – if you’re social media savvy, be sure to share your experience using hashtag #NFLVIP to make friends at home jealous!
  • Small camera to document memories
