MetLife Stadium East Rutherford is the only NFL arena to host two teams. Both the New York Jets
and the New York Giants
play on the field, which lies just across the Hudson River in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Completed in 2010, several other competitions and events have gone down in the stadium, such as college football, exhibition FIFA soccer matches, professional wrestling bouts and stops of the Electric Daisy Carnival music festival. Dozens of concerts have also taken place in the stadium, such as performances by Justin Bieber, Bruce Springsteen and Beyoncé.
MetLife Stadium has a total capacity of 82,500 seats, which makes it the second largest in the NFL. It also contains roughly 218 luxury suites. The stadium operates in full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and is fully accessible.
You can reach the stadium via car by taking Exit 16W on the New Jersey Turnpike or from Routes 3 and 120. Parking is available on site, not to mention some solid tailgating opportunities before the game, but you’ll need to buy a parking permit along with your ticket.
The stadium is also easily accessible through public transportation. Buses run between the stadium and the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan on game days. The Meadowlands Rail Line connects the stadium with Secaucus Junction, so you can also reach the stadium from Penn Station and New Jersey Transit.
Concession stands, bars and restaurants are available throughout the stadium and can accommodate any diet. The stadium sits on the expansive Meadowlands Sports Complex, and there aren’t many other options around in terms of food or drink. Plan to eat either at the game or before you head out.
Before entering the stadium, visitors will have to pass a security checkpoint. Items such as opaque bags bigger than small purses, outside alcohol, umbrellas, banners and signs and cameras with lenses over 6 inches in length are prohibited. You are allowed to bring any food in and/or a 20 oz. factory-sealed drink as long as it’s closed in a transparent bag.
