The excitement is building up as the Nebraska football team gears up to face the Northern Illinois Huskies on September 3rd, kicking off the home slate of games for the season. For fans eager to partake in the game day festivities at Memorial Stadium, here’s a comprehensive guide to ensure a seamless experience.
Arrive Early and Be Prepared
Given the anticipated rush, it’s advised to arrive ahead of time to find suitable parking and navigate through the stadium efficiently. Consider planning your arrival, parking, restroom breaks, and food options. Don’t forget to stay hydrated and heed the advice of security personnel for a safe and enjoyable game day.
Clear-Bag Policy: What You Can Bring
Nebraska maintains strict guidelines on what kinds of bags can be brought into the stadium. Essentially, each attendee can carry one clear bag—either a plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag not exceeding 12”x6”x12” dimensions, or a one-gallon plastic freezer bag. Small clutch bags are also permitted, provided they are no larger than 4.5”x6.5”.
Exceptions to this rule are made for medical necessities, which can be tagged and inspected at Gates 11 and 15 as well as premium-level lobbies. If you have queries about medical equipment or other special requirements, consult the Nebraska Athletic Event Management and Operations Office at 402-472-1003 or visit their website.
Tech-Savvy Entry: Mobile Ticketing
If you’re using mobile tickets, make sure to save them to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay before game day. Tickets will be scanned via optical readers at all gates. Re-entry is permitted, but there will be no admissions after the start of the fourth quarter.
For Students: Know Your Sections
University of Nebraska–Lincoln students should head for Sections 9 through 13B, which are general admission. Student mobile tickets must be scanned upon entry, and ticket transfers can only happen electronically among students.
The ‘Go Green for Big Red’ recycling program encourages fans to use designated recycling bins for plastic bottles and cups. Make sure to contribute to the eco-friendly initiative.
Parking and Traffic Guidelines
Most parking lots on City Campus are reserved and paid, and open at varying times depending on the game schedule. Disability-friendly parking is available, along with a free cart-shuttle service. StarTran offers a Big Red Express shuttle, and ride-share services like Uber and Lyft have a designated drop-off point at 14th and Vine streets.
Memorial Stadium gates open 90 minutes before kickoff, and Husker Fan Zone will be set up outside Gates 22 and 23. Various vendors will offer food and beverages. Alcohol is prohibited, and certain items like chairbacks are not allowed.
For more detailed information, including prohibited items, stadium policies, and road conditions, visit the Husker’s official website.
Remember, Husker event staff and security are there to assist you, and there are lost-and-found areas for misplaced items. We hope you enjoy the game and go Big Red!
