Pro Bowl Gameday Guide

OVERVIEW

The 2015 Pro Bowl, presented by McDonald's, will feature many changes to University of Phoenix Stadium from what fans experience for Cardinals' games.

Due to the high level of security for both the 2015 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl XLIX, a security perimeter will be in effect that extends well beyond the normal stadium area. As a result, the Great Lawn and other areas will be unavailable for tailgating.

Security screening will take place at Stadium Entry Plazas, and tickets will be scanned at stadium gates in a similar manner to Cardinals' games. Will call will operate in the same location as for Cardinals' games, at the Cardinals Box Office near Gate 2.

Glendale, AZ 85305

DRESS IN LAYERS! Arizona has over 300 days of sunshine, but University of Phoenix Stadium is known to be chilly. The plan is for the roof to be open on gameday, so don't come unprepared - bring a jacket!
