Al Kelly, CEO of the Super Bowl XLVIII committee, told reporters that fans will only have access to 13,000 parking spaces. That means space will be tight.
"You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car," Kelly said. "And provided you're in the boundaries of a single parking space, you'll be able to eat or drink right next to your car."
"However, 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. And it'll all be watched very carefully," Kelly added.
NFL senior vice president of events Frank Supovitz later clarified Kelly's statements in a tweet. Apparently it's still "tailgating" if you eat inside your car or the tiny space between your car and the parking spot divisions.
Contrary 2 reports, there is no ban on TLG8ing at SBXLVIII. Just can't bring grills or take up an empty pkg space.— Frank Supovitz (@SupEvents) December 9, 2013
"And the car needs to stay on the premises the entire time," he added.
