The NFL is serious about fan safety and improving the game day experience for all fans. They want to make attending games a fun, family friendly experience. This is part of the reason why the Fan Conduct Class became a permanent part of their policy for best practices for all stadiums league wide. Simply put, bad behavior at games will not be tolerated. If one is ejected from the game, every stadium will require that fan to complete certain requirements to re-enter again. One of those requirements may be to take the Fan Conduct Class. The class is aimed at teaching ejected fans about that particular stadiums safety and conduct polices so that they don't repeat the behavior that got them ejected the first time.
New for the 2016/17 season is the integration of more Spanish speaking options and well as content changes to improve how fans can learn about safety initiatives. Some important safety initiates include improved text messaging to security to report problems and updates to the NFL clear bag policy for entrance.
While less than 1% of all NFL fans will ever be required to take the class, the Fan Conduct Class is an integral part of the NFL's overall effort to make every game and fun and enjoyable experience for all.
