Even though public health orders are lifted, please give consideration to pandemic safety. Police are also reminding drivers to be patient and leave early to find enough time to park. Be patient, watch out for pedestrians, and follow directions. If you dislike driving in heavy traffic or you’re planning on drinking, then consider taking the FREE stadium shuttle.
