How to get to games in time for Super Bowl 50
The NFL will begin limiting flights to Chicago on Sunday.
The league says the restrictions will affect about 1 million passengers who plan to travel to the Chicago area to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday at Soldier Field.
The announcement came late Monday night.
It means those flying into the city on domestic flights will have to book an additional two flights a day.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Chicago’s mayor says the city’s transportation network is strained due to Super Bowl congestion.
The city’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel, says the NFL’s travel ban will hurt businesses and residents who have long relied on air travel.
The NFL, in a statement, says it is working to “ensure Chicagoans have a smooth travel experience” and that its restrictions “will allow our fans and partners to access the stadium and the events in Chicago, without having to delay their flights.”
In the meantime, fans can still book a round-trip ticket to the Rose Bowl.
The Rose Bowl is located on the campus of Notre Dame.
It was first played in 1884.
The game is scheduled to take place Saturday in the Rose Garden.
