With a full day leading up to the match there will be a lot going on in and around the stadium, so we’ll break it all down for you below. 

Pre-Match Festivities 

There will be day drinking and tailgating  aplenty on Saturday afternoon. Take a stroll downtown and check out one of our many official City Pubs

After that, get down to the Stadium early so you can check out Mane Street presented by Publix, before getting into the match early. It opens at 3:00 pm

Your Arrival Cheat Sheet

With a 7:00 pm kickoff, gates will open on Saturday at 5:30. With no sun to compete with try to arrive early and beat the crowds. Grab a beer or some of the fantastic stadium food (Cuban Bowls, what up) and take in the sights of warmups before sunset. It's really pretty, trust me.
