    Super Bowl XLVIII has been declared a level one national security event. Part of that security is to examine every item that is being brought in for Sunday's big game.

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The wait is almost over for the biggest sporting event to hit the tristate area. Approximately 80,000 people will flock to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Sunday for Super Bowl 48.

If you're one of the lucky fans catching the Denver Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks, here's what you need to know before heading out.

Pack your patience and leave with plenty of time because security will be tight. 

Restrictions on what can be brought into the stadium are many.

Take a look at what's banned at MetLife on Sunday. The following items will be confiscated if you bring them:

Food or alcohol

Footballs

Banners

Large purses or bags

Backpacks

Strollers

Camcorders

Binocular cases

Umbrellas

Small, clear plastic bags ARE allowed.

Fans who take the train to the big game might confuse the rail station with an airport.

That's because the Transportation Security Administration will be screening all bags for explosives at the Secaucus Junction Station before passengers are permitted on trains for MetLife.

TSA officers also will be using radiological detection devices.

Officials anticipate 15,000 passengers will ride trains between the station and the stadium.

The first shuttle from Secacucus Junction to MetLife stadium is at 1:41 pm.

Passengers are advised to allow extra time because of the screening.

There will be heated pavilions where security checkpoints have been established. They open at 2 p.m.

Kick-off is at 6:30 p.m.
