Welcome to MetLife Stadium!

As permitted by current New Jersey policies on businesses and gatherings, MetLife Stadium has returned to 100% capacity for all events with no physical distancing requirements. We are committed to providing everyone who enters MetLife Stadium a safe, clean environment with reduced touch points.

Guests are not required to wear a face mask or show a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination to enter the Stadium.

MetLife Stadium is now cash-free. To reduce touchpoints, we have implemented mobile ticketing upon entry and cash-free transactions at all concession stands and retail locations. Giants and Jets games will also offer guests mobile ordering and ‘Grab and Go’ food and beverage options.

These protocols are subject to change so continue to check back for the latest information. Some policies may vary for non-NFL events so be sure to visit the specific event page on our website and review the ‘Know Before You Go’ details to confirm the requirements for your event.

We appreciate your cooperation.

  • Before you arrive at MetLife Stadium, download the Giants app, Jets app or Ticketmaster app and be sure your phone is fully charged. Upon arrival, connect to our complimentary WiFi network and have your ticket displayed on your mobile device.
  • Guests can display more than one ticket on the same smartphone.
  • Digital tickets are protected by Ticketmaster’s SafeTix™ technology that continually generates a new and unique barcode that automatically refreshes every few seconds so the barcode cannot be stolen or copied. As a result, camera screenshots or paper printouts will not work. If you place your digital ticket in your mobile wallet, no barcode will be visible – however, the scanners will detect it.

Health promise

Health Promise

  • By entering MetLife Stadium, you and your guests are confirming that you have not been exposed to COVID-19, you are not experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms as identified by the CDC or have a temperature of 100.4°F or greater.

  • Assumption of Risk - Notwithstanding our efforts, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and its variants exist in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely dangerous disease that can lead to severe illness and death. While people of all ages and health conditions have been adversely affected by COVID-19, certain people have been identified by public health authorities as having greater risk based on age and/or underlying medical conditions. No precautions can completely eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19. By entering the Stadium and Stadium grounds, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and its variants.
