Bags larger than an A4 piece of paper will not be permitted entry.

Staff will be using a 'bag gauge' outside the ground to check any bags that look bigger than this.

If you're unsure, you need to make sure your big is within the following measurements:

Height 297mm (11.7 inches)
Width 210mm (8.27 inches)
Depth 210mm (8.27 inches)
Bags that are half full and folded to reduce overall size will not be accepted.

Rules such as this have nothing to do with security and everything to do with making more money out of you.

Really? Does the same apply to the similar rules at Manchester Arena then.

Will it cost me money to leave an item at the Wembley Stadium bag drop off facility?
"Yes, there will be a £10 charge per item for using the bag drop facility.

What about larger bags of merchandise from the stadium store?
"The policy does not include merchandise bags from the stadium store. These merchandise bags will be permitted into the stadium as they are clear plastic and sealable bags."

It says that the restricted bag size is done to speed up security checks. However, in practice I fear it will do the opposite. Not everyone will be aware of the restrictions, consequently there will probably be heated arguments and delays at the gates.

I've been in with a rucksack (not a large camping one) without any problems. They seem to be more interested in pouring drinks (even bottles of water) into plastic cups, though.
