NRG Stadium, which opened in 2002, seats about 80,000 fans. Its home to the NFL's Houston Texans and previously hosted the 2004 Super Bowl. The stadium is conveniently located in close proximity to thousands of parking spaces, though we highly recommend you plan ahead on where to park, whether you opt for an NFL-sanctioned reserved space or a space from an independent lot owner for the 51st Super Bowl.
Dozens of parking lots and garages in the area are offering parking (link to a full list of options is below). Prices range from about $9 for a space several miles from the stadium, to $188 to park next door. One big plus of the big game in Houston: Tons of tailgate parking is available nearby, and reserved tailgate spaces start at just $52

The 50th Super Bowl is scheduled for the afternoon of Feb. 7, 2016 in the gleaming, $1.2-billion Levi's Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, in the City of Santa Clara. The duel between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers promises to be epic, even by Super Bowl standards.
The stadium is adjacent to the Great America Theme Park and shares some parking facilities, so there are thousands of spaces in close proximity. The parking is divided into more than a dozen separate lots. Many of the spaces set aside for vendors, sponsors and VIPs, but a portion of the convenient parking will be made available to verified ticket holders.
UPDATED:To secure a reserved NFL-sanctioned space at the stadium for game day, visit (no longer available - sorry) and search for "Super Bowl Parking Passes." Prices at last check ranged from about $60 for a vehicle to $300 for a limo.
Please see below reserved Super Bowl parking options including park-and-ride.
Super Bowl parking rulesAs for prior Super Bowls, no tailgating will be allowed at NFL-sanctioned lots. The lots will open at 9 a.m. and close two hours following the game's end. And remember to wear comfortable shoes: No shuttles will be provided from your parking space to the stadium.
Another option for visitors for the Big Game: Hop on the Super Bowl Fan Express Bus, offered by the Super Bowl Host Committee. The bus shuttles run between nearby hotels and Levi's Stadium on game day.
