Phoenix Super Bowl 2015 Parking

Parking at University of Phoenix Stadium

The 2015 Super Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Super Bowl XLIX will be the third super bowl hosted by the Phoenix metropolitan area. It will feature last year's Super Bowl champs, the Seattle Seahawks, and the New England Patriots.

The stadium, which accommodates up to 72,200 fans, is surrounded by parking lots with a total of more than 14,000 parking spaces, including 2,000 spaces for people with disabilities. Many of the spaces will go to sponsors and VIPs, but a portion of the parking spaces will be made available to verified ticket holders.

NEW PARKING OPTION: Reserved parking also is now available at the Desert Mirage Golf Course adjacent to the stadium. The spaces, which allow earlier access than NFL-sanctioned lots, are selling for about $130. You will immediately download your parking pass, or you can show it to the attendant on your smartphone.

Prefer to park in an NFL-sanctioned lot closer to the stadium? You can purchase one of those parking spaces here. (The map below shows lot locations.)

Where to park for NFL Experience and Super Bowl Central

The Super Bowl experience has grown to encompass much more than the namesake game. Thousands of fans will soak up the NFL atmosphere without attending the actual game by visiting NFL Experience or Verizon Super Bowl Central, both of which will be held in downtown Phoenix. There are more than 27,000 parking spaces available in garages and along the streets of downtown Phoenix, though competition could get fierce for a space during peak times. A limited number of spaces are available for advance reservations.

If you opt for a meter instead, rates are generally $1.50 per hour, and most meters accept credit cards. Looking for information on the best travel routes, taxi zones and accessible parking? Check out the Super Bowl host committee's transportation page.

Minimize hassles with public transportation

The excellent Valley Metro system of buses and light rail in Phoenix will be running extra routes to accommodate Super Bowl fans eager to attend the game and/or the related festivities. Get the full details on the enhanced service schedule here.

Super Bowl parking Q&A

Q: How do I find an RV parking space where I can tailgate?
A: This is the million-dollar question. The NFL does not allow tailgating on any of its official lots, and most privately controlled lots have followed suit. We will update the site if reserved spaces come available. Meantime, you can use the links above to buy tickets for tailgate parties outside the stadium.

Q: How do I arrange for a disability parking pass (ADA)?
A: Find information on ADA parking for the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl here

New York Super Bowl 2014 Parking

Parking at MetLife Stadium

The 2014 Super Bowl is scheduled for Feb. 2, 2014, at the Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Super Bowl XLVIII will be a game of firsts: The first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl and the first to be jointly hosted by two states: New York and New Jersey. It's also being billed as the first mass-transit Super Bowl, with the NFL discouraging on-site parking at the stadium.

The Super Bowl host committee is expected to encourage fans attending the game or associated festivities including the NFL Experience and Super Bowl Boulevard to use public transportation to the greatest extent possible. Some lots near the stadium are offering tailgating packages that include shuttle transportation on game day, and many fans will use park-and-ride options near New York-New Jersey transit stations.

There are about 24,000 parking spaces in 14 lots surrounding MetLife Stadium and another 5,000 spaces in adjacent lots to the east of the stadium. But only about half of the stadium spaces will be sold to verified ticket holders. (UPDATE: Official NFL-sanctioned stadium parking has sold out as of 1/24. But you can still buy them on the secondary market. Visit our parking reservations page for details)

Reserve 2014 Super Bowl parking in advance

Many fans will opt to reserve Super Bowl parking before the game so they know where they're headed on game day. Spaces near the stadium at last check were going for about $80 for a car and about $200 for a bus or RV. In most cases, that includes a round-trip shuttle to the Secaucus Junction station, which takes you directly to the stadium. Others, including Redd's Restaurant parking, includes a direct shuttle to the stadium. Some lots even allow tailgating, which is not permitted at NFL-sanctioned lots. Prices and availability are subject to change until you reserve a space. Fans can also choose from among lots near New York-New Jersey transit stations, for a convenient game-day experience. 

Catch the Fan Express Bus

Another game-day option is the Fan Express Bus, which will pick up passengers at nine designated locations on Super Bowl Sunday. Pick-up spots include Grand Central Terminal, Battery Place, Madison Square Park, Time Warner Center, Waldorf Astoria and Newark International Airport. Visit our reserved parking page to find a space for your car. Then book your round-trip bus fare here.

Super Bowl Boulevard parking

Thousands of fans will soak up the festive NFL atmosphere without attending the actual game by visiting the popular Super Bowl Boulevard. It's been a hugely popular feature for the last two Super Bowls, and the festivities planned for Midtown Manhattan won't disappoint. But you'll still need a plan for parking and transportation. Our Super Bowl Boulevard parking guide gets you up to speed on reserved parking options and traffic restrictions.

New York City hotel, restaurant and party parking

Most of New York City's hotels and restaurants do not have on-site parking for guests. That means overnight visitors for the Super Bowl will need to find and reserve a parking space. Luckily, there's a one-stop way to shop around for the best overnight parking deal near your hotel. Simply select your hotel and compare your nearest parking options by price and amenities.
