When will I receive my parking passes?

Parking passes will be sent electronically this year. Fans will be asked to print out your parking pass at home and bring with you to the game. Please have it visible for officers as you approach all checkpoints leading into the stadium complex. Passes will be scanned and can only be used one time.
