The smell outside of the Super Bowl this winter will be a lot different than it is for Chiefs games at Arrowhead Stadium.
There won’t be any barbecue smoke in the air because tailgating won’t be allowed before the game Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Al Kelly, the game’s committee CEO, made the announcement Monday.
Kelly said fans can eat in their car — or next to it — but cooking won’t be allowed.
“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 said. “And it’ll all be watched very carefully.”
There will be fewer than 13,000 parking spots available for fans. No cars will be allowed near the stadium on game day without a parking pass, so many fans will use a Fan Express or N.J. Transit.
