Face Masks

As permitted by current New Jersey policies on businesses and gatherings, MetLife Stadium will operate at full capacity with no face masks.

Cash Free Transactions

To reduce touch points, MetLife Stadium will operate cash-free. Cash will not be accepted at concession stands and retail locations. Pay with a debit or credit card using contactless tap to pay, mobile wallet, chip or swipe. The Jets prefer Visa as a form of payment. Reverse ATM machines will be available throughout MetLife Stadium for guests to convert cash to a prepaid Visa debit card. The Visa debit card has no expiration date and can be used anywhere a Visa debit card is accepted.
