*They do recommend getting there within the first couple hours of areas opening, as traffic does increase. Also, be aware there is construction going on around the State Farm Stadium and Westgate area, mainly Glendale between 91st Ave and the 101 freeway – plan accordingly!
Here is the link to more stadium parking information as well
There is also parking across the street (walking distance) from the stadium at Westgate Entertainment District, including parking for electric vehicles! “There are 16 Tesla Superchargers (15 car & 1 cybertruck) located behind Dave & Buster’s in Lot 1”, per the parking information on their website.
There are several spots around the stadium that fans are able to tailgate before games. Lots of fans also tailgate across the street at Westgate Entertainment District as well! Here is more tailgate information
Also remember, that while you can drink outside while tailgating, you will not be able to bring any drinks inside and the clear bag policy is in effect (heads up they are requiring bags to be even smaller than previously, read more clear bag policy details here).
Follow @CardsGameday for the most current details about all things game day for fans. And if you can’t make it out to the game, there are still a number of ways to listen or watch it as well!
