City outlines Super Bowl LII game day parking changes at municipal facilities
Due to the uniqueness and size of the Super Bowl LII events, the City has worked with the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee and NFL to reasonably accommodate both current parking users and large event parking demands.
There will be no change for monthly contract parking in municipal facilities until game day. On Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 4, some municipal parking facilities will require total use for event purposes.
As required by the monthly customer contracts, the City posted notices in January of its plan to not allow contract parking at eight facilities on Super Bowl Sunday. Municipal monthly parking contracts will not be revoked.
Residents and visitors will be able to pre-purchase parking for any event in downtown Minneapolis at a guaranteed rate through the NFL Mobile Fan Pass, which is expected to go live soon. Visit mnsuperbowl.com/transportation for more details and parking updates.
