Sunset on Feb 1st:                               6:04pm

AIRPORT ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE

Due to the volume of people arriving into Miami over Super Bowl week, getting into and out of the Airport may be a lengthy process. For those flying out on Monday 3rd Feb, it is suggested you arrive at the airport three hours prior to your scheduled departure time to clear check-in and clear security lines. Please also allow lots of time for travel as there will be a LOT of traffic. 

For airport transfers each-way, TAXI's or UBER are the most cost effective mode of transport. Please ensure you have the UBER app loaded on your phone prior to departure to the States.

If you would like a private transfer with a car and driver to meet you at the airport, please email us.

And we are sure you all have this covered, but don't forget to check your ESTA Visa is in place prior to departing Australia! 

FYI - there is also a pretty large international airport located about 45-60 minutes north in Fort Lauderdale. You may see options for either your connecting flights from Australia, or other cities in the US that suit this airport just as well as Miami International airport.

TICKET COLLECTION

You will be able to collect your Super Bowl ticket and tailgate party ticket from our team on Friday, 31st January or Sat 1st February.

We will advise details much closer to the event. For security reasons, we will not be publicly sharing this information, nor the time and location of our ticket collection point.

IMPORTANT NOTICE RE: FACE VALUE PRICE OF YOUR TICKETS

You will notice when you pick up your tickets in Miami from us, that there is a face value price printed on each ticket. As there is no way for the general public to buy tickets direct for this game from the NFL, this can cause some confusion with our guests. So, we thought it may make sense to try to give some insight here.

There are a very limited number of NFL club members, and players for NFL franchises that are offered to pay this “face value” price for their ticket. The rest of us, including the NFL’s commercial arm of On Location Experiences and their Agents, have to pay the Retail Rate, which includes the VIP Pregame Hospitality package.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions on how the pricing, secondary market or the retail value of your ticket is calculated. We are happy to clarify for you if you have questions.

GAME DAY INFORMATION

As part of your ticket package purchased with Insider Sports, we will be providing Game Day Coach Transfers to / from Hard Rock Stadium on the day. We will be coordinating with you closer to the game on times and meeting points for these transfers.

IMPORTANT - HARD ROCK STADIUM HAVE ADVISED THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT AN INTERNATIONAL DRIVERS LICENSE AS A FORM OF ID FOR ALCOHOL SALES. YOU WILL NEED TO CARRY YOUR PASSPORT.

SUPER BOWL 54 MOBILE APP

Super Bowl LIV - Fan Mobile Pass app is your exclusive access to all the exciting NFL Super Bowl LIII events taking place in Miami, FL. We recommend downloading the app prior to attending any NFL Super Bowl LIV event or sign up onsite.

We will provide a link to this App when it is available for download in the iTunes and/or Google Play stores closer to the game.

PREGAME TAILGATE PARTY | 2:30-5:30pm (kick-off at 6:30pm)

The location of this year's NFL-produced tailgate party has not been confirmed yet. When we have more details on the location, we will share them with you here.

As we know from year’s past, there will be plenty of top-shelf spirits, beer, soft drinks and food on offer.  The Party runs from 2:30pm - 5:30pm local time, which provides enough time to make your way to your seats to take in all the pre-game festivities.

In 2019 in Atlanta, musical acts DJ Ruckus and The Jacks were the headline acts for the 53 Live Pregame Tailgate Party. Both have Australian ties, with DJ Ruckus being married to an Australian model, and The Jacks having started out in Melbourne.

This tailgate party is INCLUDED in your ticket.

SUPER BOWL 54 PREGAME REDZONE - HOSTED BY SCOTT HANSON

For those who would prefer to take in all the sights and sounds of the pregame warmups, the NFL introduced a new initiative in Minneapolis and carried it over to Atlanta, where the host of ESPN’s Red Zone, Scott Hanson, provides a 90-minute pregame rundown of the team’s players on field during the warmups, with exclusive interviews and predictions of the game to come. If this is of interest to you, we recommend you make you way to your seats by 4:30pm local time to take in all the atmosphere inside Hard Rock Stadium.

PROHIBITED ITEMS

The NFL Clear Bag Policy has been in place for many years, and ALL fans must adhere to the list of prohibited items, and how to carry items into Hard Rock Stadium in a clear bag.

Bags and purses must be smaller than 4.5" x 6.5" in size. Please note when you pick-up your tickets we will be providing a clear bag that meets the NFL specifications. One is provided for every two tickets.

  • Alcohol sales on the concourses and in the seating areas will generally terminate at the end of the third quarter. 

  • Guests passing alcohol to minors will be ejected and subject to arrest.

VIP PARTIES - RECAP FROM ATLANTA 2019

RESTAURANTS

We encourage everyone to make their reservations as soon as possible. A great app is called OPEN TABLE. You can download this in the app store and make your dinner bookings online. Many of the restaurants are booked out exclusively for NFL sponsors. Over the course of the next several months, we will begin to list some of our favorites.

LOCAL INFORMATION

Population:                Miami is located in the Southeastern part of the USA in the state of Florida. It’s the 7th largest metropolitan area in the United States with over 6.1 Million people.

Time Zone:                 UTC– 5 Hours.  Eastern Standard Time (EST) in the USA. During the month of February, Sydney & Melbourne are 16 hours ahead of Miami; meaning that when it’s 10am in Sydney / Melbourne, it’s 6pm in Miami the day prior.

Electricity:                  The standard US voltage is 100 volts (compared to Australia’s 240 volts).  If you are taking any electrical appliances make sure you get an adapter or two before you leave (you most likely won’t find an Aussie power adapter in the US). Light switches in the US are the opposite (up for on, down for off).

Insider Tip:  If you have a lot of devices that need to be charged overnight like we do, bring a 4-outlet power strip with you from Australia that way you only need one US converter to plug in and charge all your devices overnight! 

Remember:                When crossing a road, look left first, then right.  It takes a bit of getting used to, but it is something you need to be aware of all the time and it’s easy to forget.
