Game Day Navigation

The Panthers have partnered with Waze and Google maps to help navigate fans on game days. WAZE and Google maps are the ONLY GPS programs with event day traffic plans and street closures, providing accurate directions, and real-time traffic alerts to pre-purchased game day lots.

  1. To get started, please download Waze (iOS | Android) or Google Maps (iOS | Android) on your mobile device.
  2. Click to input your parking lot address, Waze or Google Maps will do the rest.
  3. After the road closures have been lifted, maps will automatically return to a normal traffic pattern in the app.

Tailgating Guidelines

Tailgating activities can create special risks to public safety due to the use of multiple open-flame cooking devices in close proximity to people, vehicles, buildings, structures and combustible vegetation. These guidelines are established to provide a set of minimum safety measures to be followed by persons wishing to engage in such activities.

Open-flame cooking devices shall not be operated within 25 feet of any building or structure and not within 10 feet of any motor vehicle.

A minimum clearance of 10 feet shall be maintained between any open-flame cooking device and dry vegetation, combustible materials, trash dumpsters or receptacles, or in close proximity to anything that can create a fire hazard.

Any parking area or lot being used for parking and tailgating activities shall be provided with metal containers for the safe disposal of coals, cinders or hot ashes. Containers shall be clearly labeled "For Coal and Ash Disposal Only." Any other trash receptacle or container shall not be used for such purpose.

Every effort shall be made to ensure that any coals or cinders are extinguished prior to disposal.

Open-flame cooking devices shall be attended at all times and shall not be used in parking decks or in any manner that will impede pedestrian or vehicle traffic.

Any other type of outdoors burning or open fire, which is not part of a cooking device, is strictly prohibited.
