You’ve only got 85 days until Super Bowl 50. It’s not as far away as it seems! If your team is doing well this year, (looking at your Carolina Panther’s fans) it’s easy to get wrapped up in the hype and forget about the post-season. So, here’s a list of everything you need to have in place before heading out to San Francisco to watch some good football.
It’s generally a bad idea to assume you can get tickets at the door for the biggest sporting event in the Unites States. If you buy them early it’s easier to secure the exact seat you want. Double check you remember where you put your tickets in your luggage too, they’re easy to misplace. If you haven’t yet, you can check out Super Bowl 50 tickets now!
Do you have your room booked? If your best friend suddenly decided to bring his new girlfriend, did you remember to update the reservation? Do you know how many days you’re staying? Do you know how far it is from your hotel to the Stadium? Check to see if you can get a deal on hotel rooms if you’re making reservations for the whole family. Or, if you’d prefer, you can get a Super Bowl 2016 package and they’ll take care of all of that for you.
First figure out how many days you want to stay. Then check the calendar to see which day you should fly down. Most importantly, did you remember to call in sick on the Monday after game day? Be sure to double check how many bags you can bring on your plane. Also, don’t forget to arrange transportation to the airport from your house! Sometimes family members aren’t forgiving if you call them at 6 a.m. the day you’re flying out.
Do you know who you’re going with? If you’re planning on going with a big group, did you check to make sure you’re all in the same hotel? Is everyone flying on the same day? Do you know where you’re meeting? Maybe you want to ask around on Facebook or Twitter to see if anyone else is going to the game. That way you can add to the party.
If you make plans now you can still get into the best pre-game tailgates around. Because it’s the Super Bowl, you want to go big! Check out the Players Super Bowl Tailgate, it’s catered by Guy Fieri this year. Because they do all the cooking, you don’t have to worry about finding a grill while you’re traveling.
Once your teams wins the day, you’ll want somewhere great to party! There are some great San Francisco events you can buy tickets for. Don’t get stuck looking for space in a crowded bar after the game. The closer we get to game day, the more details will be available on Super Bowl parties.
Do you know how to get to Levi’s Stadium from where you’re staying? We offer game-day transportation as part of our Super Bowl Packages. But in case you’re renting a car, here’s the address for the stadium: 4900 Marie P Bartolo Way, Santa Clara, CA 95054. And directions for getting there.
Date and Time
The NFL recommends fans arrive by 11:00 a.m. on February 7th 2016. Look at what you can bring into the stadium before you leave. It should be gorgeous in California, but don’t forget to check the weather before you go!
When you’re pretty sure your team is going to make it, don’t put off making plans for Super Bowl 2016. There’s a lot to plan for before we even get to the playoffs. If you wait until you’re 100% sure your team will be in the running for a ring, you’ll miss out on some great Super Bowl package deals.
