UPDATES FOR NOVEMBER 5 PLAYOFF GAME:

Planning on making it to #TheMike on Saturday afternoon? Make sure to budget some extra time to ensure you'll be able to make the 3:00 pm kickoff with no worries!

  • Please note that Saturday's Monumental Marathon will impact travel across the downtown area at different points throughout the morning and afternoon hours. Click here for a map of closures and logistics ...

    • If you are using New York Street to approach Carroll Stadium from the east (downtown), you are advised to utilize West Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Street to reach New York Street
  • With no passes available for advance purchase, ALL SALES for Lots A-D will be handled at the parking lot entry gates, which may result in longer entry time. As always, the closer you arrive to kickoff, the greater the chance of waiting!
  • Gates will open at 12:00 p.m. ET, three hours in advance of the 3:00 pm kickoff
  • Per usual, surface lots A-D will be on a CASH ONLY basis, while credit cards will be accepted for the Barnhill and Sports Complex parking garages (reference map below for locations & prices).
