Parking & Traffic Tips from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
SMG Parking Division (Sports Complex Area)
Fans without pre-paid parking passes should use general parking. As in past years, JSO anticipates that general public parking in the Sports Complex area will fill up five hours prior to kickoff and lots open at 6 a.m. Private lots near the stadium fill up just as fast.
ARRIVE EARLY. The stadium gates open at 1:30 p.m. At 1:30 p.m. the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office’s focus will shift to pedestrian traffic. Vehicle traffic to the stadium should expect delays.
Follow the parking directions of the sign boards on display on major roadways throughout the city.
