Tailgating Policy

Tailgating involves the use of grills, coolers, chairs, tables or other devices that could inhibit pedestrian passage or vehicular access. Activities that do not use any additional space beyond your parking space are permitted. Port-o-lets are provided throughout the parking lot.

Purple, Orange, Green, Gray, Platinum, Limo, and Bus/RV parking lots open four (4) hours prior to kickoff. The RedZone Lot opens five (5) hours prior to kickoff. Port-o-lets are provided throughout the parking lots.

Tailgating closes at kickoff and all guests must enter the stadium or depart from the property at this time. All lots close two (2) hours after the end of the game.

In order for all guests to enjoy the tailgating experience, we ask that fans follow these guidelines:

  • Use of an empty parking space for tailgating is permitted only in designated areas and until such time as the space is needed to park other vehicles.
  • Use of an empty parking space for tailgating is not permitted in the Platinum Lots.
  • When parking, park your car in one space only and between the white lines.
  • Parking permits are to be used for cars only, not for additional tailgating space or storage.​
  • Be considerate of other guests' vehicles.
  • For the safety of all guests and for emergency vehicle access, please keep all aisles clear.
  • Dispose of all trash in proper receptacles.
  • Prior to entering FedExField, please extinguish all flames and grills. Ash dumpsters are available throughout the lots for your convenience. Do not place a hot grill in or under any vehicle.
