The Super Bowl XLVIII committee has spoken: There will be no tailgating allowed at MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2, 2014 prior to the NFL’s championship game.

Committee CEO Al Kelly told ESPN.com’s Jane McManus: “You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in you car. And provided you’re in the boundaries of a single parking space, you’ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car. However you’re not going to be able to take out a lounge chair, you’re not going to be able to take out a grill and you’re not going to be able to take up more than one parking space.”

Kelly also revealed more plans for the logistics of this season’s Super Bowl, and they’re somewhat unusual. Fans will not be allowed to to park and walk to the East Rutherford, N.J. stadium; nor will they be able to arrive via taxi or limo, because only vehicles with parking passes will be allowed near the premises.

Say Whaaaaaaa????

Since when does the wine and cheese crowd of the Super Bowl have interest in tailgating outdoors in February in New York?

Which some of us wish we actually had the option of doing at the stadium which is located in our city.

That or the shuttles they are setting up


Here is part of the reason for the restriction


"There will be fewer than 13,000 parking spots available for fans"

At least we know why the Texans chose to stink it up this season. They didn't want to play in NY in February

Yep. That coupled with the ban on walking. You cannot walk to the Super Bowl. LOL

That sounds like the Oilers tailgating policy when they were in Houston. I remember pass a football in the parking lot before an Oilers game and the security guy told us to get inside the 'dome or leave the parking lot immediately.
