Get Ready for a Great New Jersey Super Bowl
MetLife Stadium may be home to the New York Jets and the New York Giants, but we here in New Jersey know that they don’t play in New York, but in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Whether you are a New Jersey resident who was lucky enough to score tickets, or a fan who has traveled here from another state, you need to know that this Super Bowl is going to be cold. We are experiencing record cold temperatures and winter storms. Getting to MetLife Stadium will not be easy and staying warm during the game will be a challenge.
The majority of recent Super Bowl games have been played in domes (Indianapolis) or warm weather cities (New Orleans, Arlington, Miami, Tampa). Super Bowl XLVIII will be played in East Rutherford, outdoors, without a dome, during a potential storm. It’s going to be an amazing game in which players and coaches will have to make adjustments as the snow falls, the temperature drops, and the winds blow.
If you are driving to the game, you will have to spend at least $150 on parking. ESPN reports that these passes are mostly sold out, but there may still be passes available if you act fast. The MetLife Stadium bus costs about $51 per seat and only those with a Super Bowl ticket will be allowed on board. You will have to book a specific bus that will leave from one of seven locations in New Jersey and Manhattan. If you want to save money, there will be a train that travels directly to the station as well.
When you arrive, you will be given hand warmers and texting gloves, but that is not enough to stay warm in these conditions. You should dress as if you are going to the Arctic! The commercial breaks and timeouts will be lengthy and the game will take longer than a regulation game. If you have club seats, you may be able to stay warm in common areas, but these will not be available for those in the upper bowl.
Please remember to bundle up, to refrain from driving if you have been drinking, and to give yourself plenty of time. There will be delays, congestion, and a lot of confusion, but in the end, you will have a unique experience that you will talk about for the rest of your life.
