Camping World Kickoff: Parking, Shuttle and Stadium Information

Know Before You Go: Parking, Shuttle and Stadium Information

Important fan information before the game.


NEW Clear Bag and Security Policies

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry, Florida Citrus Sports has implemented an NFL-style clear bag policy this year that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into Camping World Stadium.

We strongly encourage fans to not bring any type of bags, but have outlined which types of bags are permissible.

Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:

• Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12.”
• One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
• Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bags.

An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

In addition, Camping World Stadium will now require magnetic wanding for entry to all games. The magnetic wand is a non-invasive device that scans the body for prohibited items. If you decline screening for medical reasons or if a metal detector alert cannot be solved through inquiry or physical inspection, a physical pat-down might be necessary.

Due to this new policy, please enter the stadium at least 15 minutes earlier than your normal entry time. Your patience and assistance is appreciated while we work through this process in order to keep Camping World Stadium a safe environment for all of our guests.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Fans will continue to be able to enjoy their tailgate activities in the parking lots and to do so with greater safety and the knowledge that their entry into the stadium will be smoother and faster. They also will continue to be able to carry items allowed into the stadium, such as binoculars and smart phones.

We request your cooperation by supporting the participants, officials and event management staff in a positive manner. If you need assistance in the stadium please text 88222 with “FAN + your location and issue” to notify ushers and/or security personnel.

Should you require medical attention at any point during the game, First Aid is located at Service Gate D in the southwest corner of the stadium, directly behind sections 122/222. You may also contact an usher to summon assistance to your location.


Weather/Emergency Plan

In the event of lightning in the area, the game will be delayed. Ushers and stadium personnel will direct you to the appropriate exit to take shelter on the stadium concourse. The game will remain in a delay until at least 30 minutes has elapsed since the last flash of lightning.

In the event of an emergency evacuation, ushers and stadium personnel will direct you to the appropriate exit, ensuring that ample exits are available for all fans to leave the stadium quickly and safely. Please do not run, push or shove. Once on the concourse, please exit through the nearest lettered fence gate (A-D) in a corner of the stadium. Often this is the same gate you used to enter the stadium.
