Parking FAQ

General Parking Information

Please note you will need a Pre-Paid Parking Permit to park at MetLife stadium.

When do the parking lots open?

Parking lots open five hours prior to kickoff. It is highly recommended to arrive early as the closer it gets to kickoff, the more crowded the roadways and parking lots will become. So arrive early to tailgate or check out the plaza area between the stadium and entry gates.

When do the parking lots close on gamedays at MetLife Stadium?

Parking lots close two hours after the end of the game.

Can I tailgate?

1.) Tailgating has become a ritual at the stadium and is permitted provided guests tailgate in the same space occupied by their vehicle. Please be courteous to your fellow fans -- open parking spaces should not be used for tailgating. MetLife Stadium and the Jets are actively monitoring all lots with additional security and there are patrols to enforce the one car, one spot policy.

2.) While tailgating is permitted in designated locations at specified times, any unauthorized commercial activity is strictly prohibited and is a violation of the law. Individuals and companies are prohibited from selling access to a tailgate party to members of the general public either in advance of or on the day of an event.

3.) Ticket holders may not reserve adjacent parking spaces for others.

4.) Tailgating is not permitted in the parking garages which are located on the Arena side. And also not permitted in the non-tailgating areas located in Lot G.

If you have a large tailgate party, stadium management strongly encourages you to arrive early and use the paved areas on the islands located between the parking lots. This will allow you to fully enjoy your party while being courteous to your fellow fans.

Grills are permitted for tailgating enjoyment, provided guests do so only in the same space occupied by their vehicle. However, their use near buildings or in areas where guests or property may be damaged is strictly prohibited.

Please do not discard hot coals near vehicles or in plastic waste receptacles; there have been several car and trash fires over the past few years. For your safety and convenience, hot coal bins have been provided for the disposal of charcoal. These large, orange "hot charcoal" bins are located on the islands/plazas between the parking lots. PLEASE DO NOT DISCARD TRASH IN THE HOT COAL BINS OR HOT COAL ASHES IN THE TRASH CONTAINERS.

Open fires are not permitted

Trash receptacles are located throughout the Sports Complex parking lots and near the stadium entrances. Please bag and dispose of your trash to make it safer for vehicles exiting the Sports Complex after the game.

Outside catering companies are not permitted on the Sports Complex. Delaware North Sportservice is the official food service provider/caterer for the MetLife Sports Complex. To schedule a catered event, please contact Delaware North Sportservice at (201) 559-1631.
