Liberty Bowl parking updates

MEMPHIS — Patrons of the “SOLD OUT’ AutoZone Liberty Bowl Classic game are strongly encouraged to plan out their routes and parking destinations prior to leaving for the game.

GET THERE EARLY

The Liberty Bowl/Fairgound parking lots will open at 8:00 a.m., Saturday January 2nd. Parking spaces will be $10.00 per space. Gates to the stadium for seating will open at 2:30 p.m. and kick-off is at 4:30 p.m. It is suggested that visitors planning to park on site, arrive early as parking is expected to be full by 12.00 noon due to pre-game events and limited parking. Liberty Bowl/Fairground parking can be accessed from Central

Avenue, East Parkway South (former Libertyland entrance).

Additional paid parking can also be found in the surrounding area on private lots and at Tobey Park (2599 Avery Avenue). Memphis Police Department is prepared for overflow parking in the nearby residential areas with additional patrols in the area. Patrons are reminded to observe parking ordinances.

As patrons near the stadium, please be on the look out for electronic traffic information message boards. These message boards will let you know when fairgrounds/ general parking lots are full.

MAKE IT EASY, TAKE THE SHUTTLE

To help relieve some of the parking challenges of this game, the Memphis Area Transit Authority will provide a “Football Parking Shuttle” leaving from 6 locations in the Memphis area with two downtown locations. These shuttles will depart from the pick up locations at 3:00 p.m. The cost of the shuttle is $5.00 per person, round trip.
