SLS TAILGATING POLICIES
Tailgating is a big part of the gameday experience for many fans. For safety and enjoyment of all, we ask that you please follow these Tailgating tips:

  • Occupy only ONE parking space per vehicle. Please do not save spaces for others.
  • Tailgate directly behind your vehicle using the designated 8'x10' space outlined on the ground.  
  • Do not block the fire lane with tents or other items; the lane is needed for emergency response vehicles. Miami-Dade Police Officers will patrol these areas to ensure compliance.
  • No box trucks, trailers, grills in-tow or any catering service from an outside source may be brought in.
  • No kegs are allowed on the property. Anyone dispensing beer from a keg will be asked to leave and the keg will be confiscated.
  • No golf carts or motorized scooters of any kind permitted.
  • No generators, home speakers, banners and/or DJ's may be used.
  • Please keep music volume low and do not play music with inappropriate language.
  • Barbeque grills are allowed, open-flame fires are not permitted.
  • Extinguish hot coals with water before leaving the area.
  • Do NOT dispose of charcoal briquettes on the ground.  After they are cold, place them in a plastic bag and deposit them in a trash bin.
  • Clean up your area before entering the stadium to watch the game so it's safe for you and others.
