I received complimentary Game Day Fan Zone passes for the Orange Bowl. Why is there a cost associated with the Game Day Fan Zone for the BCS National Championship Game? Am I required to buy the Game Day Fan Zone tickets?

The Orange Bowl Committee provides complimentary Game Day Fan Zone passes for the Discover Orange Bowl Game to all Patrons on the Lower Level and Club Level that renew their seats. We are not able to provide passes free of charge of the BCS National Championship Game Day Fan Zone due to limited space available and the expected demand for the event from fans of participating schools. However we did want to ensure our annual Patrons had the first opportunity secure passes for this great pre-game event. You are not required to purchase the Game Day Fan Zone passes and can remove them from your account online or may contact the Orange Bowl Ticket Sales and Service Department at or (305) 34-4701.

Will the Discover Orange Bowl follow the same protocol as the NFL’s Bag Policy?

The NFL has instituted a new safety policy for all stadiums this year, which includes Sun life Stadium where the Discover Orange Bowl will be played.  The new safety policy affects the type and size of bags that are permitted into the stadium — not the items that fans normally need to bring to a game. Fans may continue to carry pockets items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets and credit cards. 

Below are the NFL approved bags fans may carry into the stadium:

  • One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12” by 6” and 12” or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, fans may also carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
    • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at Gate E designated for this purpose.
  • Diapers and wipes can be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.

Fans will continue to be able to tailgate with their usual items in the parking lots. Items such as smart phones, binoculars and cameras will still be permitted into the stadium. This policy is meant to speed up the process of entering the stadium along with increasing security measures.
