Ultimate guide to attending a Philadelphia Eagles game

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

[Editor's note: Promoted from the FanPosts.] -- Updated for the 2021 season! Hopefully this is beneficial whether it’s your first time ever going to Lincoln Financial Field (aka "The Linc"), your first time going in a long time, or even if you’re a regular that’s looking to find new ways to maximize your game day experience.

Getting To The Game

There are 4 main ways to get to the stadium:

Public Transportation – The SEPTA Broad Street Line’s last southbound stop is the NRG Station, right in the thick of the sports complex. On game days there is usually an express service on the line, with limited stops. For the past few seasons, the Broad Street line to and from the game is free for the Eagles’ first home game.

Shuttles – Chickie’s and Pete’s offers the "Taxi Crab" from their Packer Avenue location. For $25 you get valet parking and can catch the shuttle to/from the game. If you want to live dangerously, you can self-park there (or somewhere close) and catch the Taxi Crab for free, but take note if you’re in the shopping center lot and not in the restaurant or patronizing another business, you could get towed. Rally Bus helps organize meeting points around the area where Eagles fans can avoid the stress of getting in and out of the sports complex by crowd-funding the rental of a shuttle bus. The buses have TVs, restrooms and WiFi. Cheerleaders (and other gentleman’s clubs) have also offered a free shuttle in the past and have food, drink, or cover specials with your ticket after the game, or so I’ve heard...

Taxi/Uber/Lyft – If you’re using one of these services to get to the game, the usual drop-off/pick-up spots are next to Xfinity Live, on Pattison Avenue, or on Broad Street, near the NRG subway station.

Park – Unlike some cities, the South Philadelphia sports complex provides a ton of parking reasonably close to the stadiums. Of course, it comes at the cost of $40 in cash and potentially long stretches of sitting in your car trying to get in or out of the lot you are in. However, there are ways to make your experience more smooth, if you have a plan going in (Tip: arrive at least 2 hours before kickoff if you want to ensure you’ll have enough time to get into a lot, find parking, and get through the security lines.) Here are your parking options:

  • Official Lincoln Financial Field Parking Lots ($40 for cars, $80 for buses/RVs): These are essentially the Linc lots, the Wells Fargo lots and the Citizen’s Bank Park lots. This map gives you the overview, but I’ll go into more detail about them.
    • Lots A through N are now mostly reserved lots, meaning you can’t usually roll up on game day and pay cash to park in them. Most of the spots in those lots are sold in advance to season ticket members (at the discounted price of $35/game.) You can find passes for these lots on ticket re-selling sites, auction sites and classified sites. These are also tailgating lots, meaning grilling/cooking, and alcohol, is allowed.
      • The grey-colored sections (on the map) of lots E, J, K, L, and portions of D & N, are "VIP/Reserved" sections, usually for fans with seats in the suites, the club level, or other premium seating areas (though, some regular, long-time season ticket members were grand-fathered into Lot E.)

      • The grey portion of Lot N is also known as the "Jetro Lot" because during a normal weekday it is the parking lot for the Jetro food services warehouse that is surrounded by the yellow M/N lots. The Eagles lease the lot for NFL games but for other sporting events/concerts, it operates as an independent lot.
        • This lot is ONLY for specific Lot N VIP/reserved passes. Yellow or general Lot M/N passes WILL NOT get you in here. If you have a regular M/N pass, do not go down Darien Street toward this lot because you’ll waste a lot of time getting there and having to turn around and get back to Pattison, where you’ll have to turn right, to get back to the regular M/N lot entrances.
      • Lot K is covered with solar panels, which can help keep you somewhat dry, on a rainy day. Lot L has valet parking, and Lot J is usually where the Eagles brass, media and other well-connected people park. (The players and coaches park at the NovaCare complex and take a charter bus to the stadium.)

      • Opening times for 1pm games:
        • 6:00am: A-H, M, N
        • 8:00am: K, J, L
      • Opening times for 4pm games:
        • 6:00am: A-H, M, N
        • 11:00am: K, J, L
      • Opening times for night games:
        • 7:30am: A-H, M, N
        • 2:30pm: K, J, L
      • Take note of the game day exit routes for these lots by clicking the links on the right side of this map. It can help you plan which lot has the most direct route to the major road you’ll need to get to, after the game. Tip: park as close as you can to an exit, and not close to the stadium; it's much faster to walk through the parking lot traffic to get to your car after the game, which will then already be near the exit.
    • Lots P through X are cash lots, first come, first served. And only in lot P (purple) is tailgating technically permitted, meaning grilling and alcohol is allowed (and prohibited in Q-X, but not usually enforced.) The later opening times for the red lots make it not an ideal spot if you plan on breaking out a whole tailgating spread before the game, anyway. But you can still set-up some food, chairs, games, etc. in those lots.
      • Opening times for 1pm games:
        • 6:00am: P
        • 10:00am: Q-X
      • Opening times for 4pm games:
        • 9:00am: P
        • 1:00pm: Q-X
      • Opening times for night games:
        • 1:30pm: P
        • 5:00pm: Q-X
      • Take note of the game day exit routes for these lots by clicking the links on the right side of this map.

Tip: park as close as you can to an exit, and not close to the stadium; it's much faster to walk through the parking lot traffic to get to your car after the game, which will then already be near the exit.
  • FDR Park ($40): Located further down along Pattison Avenue, parking in and around the park used to be free and worth the extended walk to the stadium. Now, it’s the same as the other lots, but some prefer it because of the "camping" atmosphere it brings to tailgating (which is permitted.)
    • Opening time for 1pm games: 6:00am
    • Opening time for 4pm games: 6:00am
    • Opening time for night games: 7:30am

  • Navy Hospital ($40): Located next to the Eagles’ NovaCare training complex, this lot is also a further walk, but often easier to exit from after the game, especially if you’re not looking to get on I-95. Tailgating is NOT permitted in this lot.
    • Opening time for 1pm games: 10:00am
    • Opening time for 4pm games: 1:00pm
    • Opening time for night games: 5:00pm
  • Residential Streets (Free): If you’re willing to do a 20-25 minute walk, the streets in Packer Park off Pattison Avenue are an option.


What you do before the game is an experience just as important as the game itself. Going to an Eagles game offers so many pre-game options that you should have no trouble finding something to enjoy as you count down the minutes to kickoff.

Tailgating – Who doesn’t love the experience of getting up early, beating the traffic and hanging in the parking lot eating, drinking and getting hyped up with hundreds of other fans? In Philly, it’s an event in itself and it’s common to have the Eagles Pep Band, Drum Line or Cheerleaders come through the lots to help rev up the crowd. Eagles staff like team president Don Smolenski, and former players, also roam around regularly to interact with fans. Here are the many ways you can tailgate:

  • Host Your Own Tailgate: Easy and simple. Load up your vehicle with some food, drinks, a cornhole set, a football to toss around, and a couple chairs. Find a good parking spot, set-up shop, and kick back for a couple hours. And, if you don’t think your car will suffice, you can always rent a tailgate-equipped RV! Tip: clean up after yourself, there are plenty of trash cans. Don’t relieve yourself in public; there are also plenty of port-a-johns around the parking lots. And if you’ve got a small set-up, like just a couple chairs, keep it close to your vehicle and try not to take up empty parking spots.

  • Crash a Tailgate: Contrary to the national reputation we have, Eagles fans are friendly and welcoming to anyone. If you’re wearing that game’s opponent’s logo (or a blue-and-white star, for any game), you’ll usually get good-natured ribbing, but as long as you can hold your own and have fun with it, you can mingle with no problem (my golden rule for all opposing fans that ask about going to an Eagles game: The only time you’ll find trouble is if you’re looking for it.) A good way to wander into someone’s tailgate is by contributing something. A six pack, a couple bags of chips, a dozen from Dunkin, etc. are all good ways to quickly ingratiate yourself.

  • Professional Tailgates: If you want all the best a tailgate has to offer, especially when it comes to food, without any of the hassle, this is the way to go. Usually for about $50 you’ll get all you can eat and drink (including alcohol) and usually some entertainment or games. A few of the major ones:
  • Private Tailgates: If you’re looking for an exclusive tailgate for just you and your closest 10-50 friends, this is one of the (of course, expensive) options:

Xfinity Live – On the site of the old Spectrum, this restaurant and entertainment complex is an easy way to kill time before a game (although sometimes it requires a cover charge to enter.) For the rare 4pm games, it’s a great place to catch the 1pm game action, too. It can definitely get crowded and the wait for a table at the restaurants can be very long, but if you’re there early or don’t mind standing, it’s not too bad. Tip: you can reserve a table at the main NBC Sports Arena restaurant inside (and some of the others) as early as the Monday before a Sunday game. The catch is there’s a table minimum you have to spend on food and drink and you have to pay that amount upfront when you place the reservation.

Live! Casino – Behind Citizen's Bank Park, toward Packard Avenue, is one of Philly's newest casinos. With a sports book and plenty of dining options including pep rally's on game days, it's an option if you're looking to pass the time before heading into the stadium.

Pepsi Plaza – Usually 3 hours before kickoff (and 90 minutes before the inner gates to the stadium open), the Pepsi Plaza area opens as a fun spot to spend your pre-game time. In addition to the Eagles Pro Shop, there’s usually a variety of food trucks, sponsor tents with giveaways/contests, photo/autograph opportunities with Eagles Alumni, Cheerleaders & Swoop, games, face painting, live music and other entertainment. There's also a huge video board to watch pre-game shows (or NFL RedZone, if the Eagles are playing at 4pm) and the 94.1 WIP pre-game radio show broadcasts live from a big tent.

For photo ops, there's the "Philly Philly" statue. There's also oversized Eagles helmet displays to take pictures with. There are 4: current design, kelly green with silver wings from the 80’s, white with green wings from the 70’s and blue and yellow from the 30’s. And there are big B-I-R-D-S with the letter "I" missing, for fans to stand there and represent it and pose for pictures.

Watching The Game

You’ve done all the pre-game activities and now you’re ready for some football. Unless you’re already in the Pepsi Plaza and through the outer gates, you’ll have to get through the security lines. You can enter through the gate closest to your section, but wait times can get very long, so leave enough time to make it in and to your seat before kickoff (Tip: for the Lifebrand Gate, formerly known as the Northeast Gate, most people use the security lines that are straight in front of the entrance, along the "Road To Victory" bricks. But there’s also lines to the left (on the Tork Club side) and to the right (along the front of Pepsi Plaza) that lead up to this gate and have much shorter waits.)

You’ll hear fireworks/flares at 1 hour before the game and another set at 45 minutes prior to the game, as a reminder to start heading in, if you’re still in the parking lots. If you are in right when the inner gates open, 90 minutes before kickoff, you can watch the pre-game warm-ups by both teams. If you’re in the lower level, the ushers will usually let you get close to the front rows to watch, before most of the people start coming in to take their seats. And, about seating, here’s an overview, using this seating diagram as a guide:

Lower Level (Sections 101-138): You can enjoy a game at Lincoln Financial Field from any seat, which is something not all stadiums can boast (like, say, Fed Ex Field and the numerous, entire rows with obstructed views.) But the lower level is usually a desirable destination for fans looking to get close to the action.

  • Mid-Field (between the 20’s): My season tickets are in this category so I’m biased, but these sections, between rows 5 - 20, are perfect. The front rows are nice but you do lose view of the field because of the player benches, when the ball is on the side of the field closest to you. Even the last rows in these sections are nice because you get a clear view of the whole field and some overhang from the lower suites that provides shade or cover from rain/snow. Tip: for most of the season the visitor's side of the stadium is the "sunny" side, which some people like when the weather gets brisk in the fall/winter. Home side is where section 101 sits, and the Visitor side is where section 120 sits.
    • Some seats at the 50 yard-line, in section 101 (and Club C1) are Firstrust Bank Club (formerly Touchdown Club" seats and include access to the Firstrust Bank Club lounge before, during and after the game, where there is free food and drink and also includes VIP parking.
  • Sidelines (between the 20 and the back of the end zone): Great views of touchdowns, field goals and all the action in the red zone…when the ball is at your end.
  • Corners: Two of the corners have the player tunnels, which can be cool, especially if you’re in the first few rows. That’s where you’re also most likely to get any fan interaction with the players, during pre-game warm-ups, or after a game. The Eagles tunnel is under section 107, and the visitors tunnel is under section 114.
  • End Zone: Many fans swear this is the best view, and I can see the thrill of having a big play coming right toward you, or watching a goal line stand, but when the play isn’t down your way, the perspective is skewed when trying to watch the game live, so you wind up watching the live video on the scoreboards. If I sit here, it’s either in the first couple rows, or as far back as possible.
    • The Red Zone Club seats are in the first 2 rows of sections 128 to 131. These seats come with pre-game and halftime access to the Red Zone lounge, with free food, VIP parking, sideline passes to 2 games and VIP training camp access.

Upper Level (Sections 201-244): Up here it’s a matter of whether you like the "Madden" view (end zones) or the "Tecmo" view (sidelines), when watching a game. But the upper level at The Linc doesn’t ever feel like it’s a mile away from the action, which is nice. Things to note:

  • Section 232 sits on top of the Norther East Terrace section and is actually at the same level as the Club seats, which makes it closer to the field than all of the other 200 sections. It’s also mostly under cover and most of the seats are "aisle" seats, because of the spacing of the seats and rows.

  • Sections 233-237 are kind of isolated, with limited food options (that sometimes run out of certain items by the 3rd quarter), unless you’re willing to walk down to the lower level concourse or to the visitor’s sideline side of the upper level. However, most of the seats are closer to the field than the opposite end zone seats (209-215), because there are no upper suites or Mid-Level sections underneath.

  • Section 217 is designated as the "Family Section", which means no alcohol is permitted (and the ushers sometimes crack down on foul language, too.)

Club Level (Sections C1-C40): Located mostly around the middle of the stadium, on both sidelines, these seats are wider and offer more legroom than regular seats. You also have access to the indoor lounge (Tork Club on the visitor’s side, Hyundai Club on the home side) where it’s climate controlled, casual seating, flat-screen TVs, and premium food options not available at the lower or upper level concessions. There’s also usually one or two Eagles alumni that do autograph signings before the game, in each club lounge.

Mid-Level (Sections M7-M14): These seats are at the same level as the Club seats, but with regular sized seats and without access to the Club lounges (although, if you’re in M14 it’s very possible to "accidentally" wander up the stairs on the C15 side, and into the lounge.) These are mostly tickets the visiting team is allocated for their friends and families as well as the group or hospitality sales tickets, including these premium options:

  • Tailgate Club, which include access to a pre-game, 2 hour buffet in a private lounge, prior to the game.
  • Fan Zone, which includes $25 loaded onto your ticket, to spend anywhere in the stadium

Northeast Terrace (NET1-NET3): These three tiers of seating levels were part of the renovations completed in 2014 that added 1,600 new seats. This was formerly an open deck with standing room views and the Pepsi Zone seating section. It’s a semi-secluded section in the corner of the stadium with a nice view of the field, multiple "aisle" seats because of the spacing, an overhang from the elements, and each level has its own men’s and women’s restroom. NET1 has a small, mobile vendor stand of drinks, but it’s also a quick walk down the steps or from the access ramp, to the lower level concourse for food and drink options.

Southwest Terrace (SWT): Directly diagonal from the Northeast Terrace, this one-level section was also part of the renovations completed in 2014. This was formerly an open deck with standing room views and the Miller Lite Phlite Deck seating section. This is only one tier because sections 107 & 108 in front of it were extended by adding rows to the back (and in front of SWT), and the Mid-Level sections were extended to add M7 – M9, above it (that create an overhang from the elements if you're in SWT.)

Miller Lite Phlite Deck: These seats are above sections M7-M9 and Miller Lite gives tickets away to this section as part of their promotions during the season.

Bud Light Eagles Nest: This circular deck with table seating and standing room seating is in the northwest corner of the stadium, next to section 237. Bud Light gives tickets away to this section as part of their promotions during the season.

Standing Room Only (SRO or GA): About 600 standing-room only tickets are made available for each game. It’s exactly what it sounds like; you don’t have a seat but you can watch from anywhere you can stand that is not in someone’s way. You CAN’T stand in any entry ways, aisles, handicap/wheelchair areas, against the walls behind a section/row of seats or any ramps on the 100 level. So where are the common places to stand during the game?

  • There’s 5 levels of steps/landings behind section 133 that take you from the 100 level to the 200 level. The higher you go up, the better the view, now that there are 2 Main Concourse suites (MC2/MC3) behind section 133 that block the view from the first few flights of steps.

  • There’s also another 2 levels of steps/landings, behind section 132, that lead up to the Bud Light Eagles Nest.

  • The ramp and platform connecting section 232 to 231 has ample space.

  • The walkway connecting section 207 to 209, above the Miller Lite Phlite Deck, is a prime spot and usually the most crowded.

  • Tip: The steps from NET1 to NET2, and NET2 to NET3 are the best-kept secret for standing-room viewing. It’s nestled away in the northeast corner, giving you a nice view of the entire field, but being mostly out of sight to others looking to stake out a standing room spot. Similarly, there are some steps/landings in the Southwest corner, behind 107 going up the Southwest Terrace.

Axalta Tunnel Club: Originally a row of 58 seats behind the south end zone, on the field, about 16 additional seats were added for 2019 along the sideline, near the Eagle's tunnel. They have extra-wide, padded seats, a Microsoft Surface tablet (for every pair of seats to share), USB charging stations, food/drink service and access to the "Tunnel Club" which is a lounge inside the Eagles tunnel where you can hang before/during/after the game and often get high-fives from the players, as they pass by. Mike Trout's season tickets are here.

52 Club: Added for the 2018 season, and named in honor of the Super Bowl 52 victory, this originally was a row of 52 seats behind the north end zone, on the field, that offer all the same benefits as the Axalta Club seats, without the access to the Tunnel Club. For 2019, about 50 additional seats were added along the sidelines.

Party Decks: At the top of some of the lower level sections are these newly added (2021) open-air decks with capacity for 14 people and barstool seating and tables, flat screen TVs to watch replays, snacks, soda, and beer. These are essentially mini open-air suites that you can purchase by the game.

Luxury Suites: There are 5 types of luxury suites, seating 10-25 people, all with differing levels of amenities, throughout the stadium.

  • Lower Level Suites (LS1-LS72), located above the lower level bowl (including Jeffrey Lurie’s suite at the 50 yard-line, LS57).
  • President’s Club Suites (PCS73-PCS86), located above the lower suites, between the 30 yard-lines, on the home side of the stadium.
  • Red Zone Suites (RZS90-RZS99), located above the lower level bowl, in the north end zone.
  • Club Suites (CS101-CS161), located above the Club level, but under the upper level.
  • Main Concourse Suites (MC1-MC3), added for the 2018 season, these are located behind sections 133 and 107.

Fox Bet Lounge: While not a "seating" section, this lounge was built in 2020 but debuted in 2021 and is a membership-based lounge that any season ticket holder can join in either 1-year or 3-year commitments. The lounge offers a view of the player parking lot and entrance tunnel to watch as the players arrive on game day. There's also all-inclusive premium food and alcoholic beverages. The lounge is available pre-game, during the game, at halftime, and post-game. There's also views into the press conference room to watch the coach and players do their post-game media interviews. Membership also includes a private entrance, VIP parking for the season and access to special VIP events throughout the year. And if you want to upgrade your membership, there's an upper-level VIP section of the club that offers reserved booths and wait service.


There's no shortage of options at The Linc, if you're hungry; it's just a matter of knowing what you're looking for and where to get it.

  • Fuku: Added in 2018 behind section 114, and sometimes available in the club levels, are a Fuku Spicy Chicken Sandwich and Fuku Fingers with Fries, as created by celebrity chef David Chang, from Momofuku.
  • Chickie's & Pete's: The most popular item is, of course, the Crabfries, and the long lines at these stands prove it. But you can get other items from their restaurant menu, including buffalo cutlets and boneless wings. Tip: Many of "Philly Favorites" stands sell the Crabfries. They are all noted above, as well as which Chickie's & Pete's ONLY sell Crabfries, and not the cutlets and wings.
  • Tony Luke's: Another Philly favorite, get cheesesteaks and roast pork sandwiches here (with or without long hots.) For 2019, they's added their "Uncle Mike" vegetarian sandwich (sautéed broccoli rabe, sautéed spinach, sweet peppers, fried onions and marinara sauce.)
  • Bassett's Burgers & Fries: The inside location behind section 110 has the picnic burger (pulled pork, coleslaw, cheese & BBQ sauce), the mac-and-cheese burger, etc. But the outside stand in Head House Plaza also has their chili and giant turkey legs.
  • McNally's: The other standing food option in Head House in addition to Bassett's (as the other options are usually rotating food trucks), their special is the Schmitter, a sliced beef sandwich with cheese, fried onions, tomato, grilled salami and Schmitter sauce. FYI: this sandwich is NOT named after/for Mike Schmidt, but after a guy who loved the local Schmidt's beer brewed in Philly.
  • Zac's Hamburgers: A Delco favorite. The Zac Packs, of 4 cheeseburgers, aren't made to order; they come Zac-style, which include onions. Tip: Look for the Zac's food truck in Headhouse Plaza, where you can get made-to-order burgers (including with bacon), specialty fries, hot dogs, and milkshakes.
  • Quick & Carmichael's BBQ: Pulled pork sandwiches ("The Quick"), pulled chicken sandwiches ("The Carmichael"), or get a half and half that mixes both of the meats on the same roll.
  • Philly Fry: Specialty fry buckets like fries topped with cheesesteaks, buffalo chicken or crabmeat.
  • Penn Pizza: Personal pizzas and chicken parmesan sandwiches.
  • Tork Cafe & The Market: If you're fortunate enough to have Club seats, these food-court like spaces offer more upscale options than the more traditional food options you can also find in the Club Lounges. The "Pizza Station" serves brick-oven baked, personal sized, Margherita or Pepperoni pizzas. At the "LFF Grill Station" you'll find rotating options like the LLF Signature Burger (Double 1/4 pound beef brisket patties, cooper sharp cheddar cheese, diced onion, house pickles, and tomato jam), Pigskin Burger (Double 1/4 pound beef brisket patties, applewood smoked bacon, monterey jack cheese, jalapeno relish, and shredded lettuce), Tarantini Panzarotti (Chicken steak, cooper shard cheese, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese dip), and Loaded Waffle Fries (Applewood smoked bacon, monetery jack cheese sauce, and scallions.) The "E.P.A. Station" has options that in the past included an Asiago-stuffed beef brisket meatball sandwich and an E.P.A. Pork Sandwich (Herb roasted pork, wild arugula, cherry pepper relish, and sharp provolone cheese sauce.) In the refrigerated section, you'll see more health-conscious items, like a harvest cobb salad or grilled honey chicken wrap. The South Street Chilly Philly (Porcini crusted shaved ribeye steak, cooper shard cheddar, caramelized onion jam, and long hot pepper relish, on a Philly roll) can also be found here.
  • The rest are general stadium fare (hot dogs, cheesesteaks, hoagies, nachos, pretzels, popcorn, etc.) And there are vegan and gluten free options (behind section 120 & 216), as well as kosher (near sections 116/117.) Tip: For speed and simplicity, most everything you'll find inside the stadium is pre-made. But if you're looking for made-to-order eats, your best bet will be the food trucks in Pepsi Plaza, or the "Eagles Grill" locations noted above, where they make cheesesteaks and other grilled items fresh (so expect a longer wait.)
  • If you're looking for something sweet, take note of the "Treat" stands mentioned above, and the Rita's cart locations. There's also a few Dippin' Dots carts around, as well as Cotton Candy vendors that walk the stands.


  • Water: If you buy a bottle of water, they usually take the cap off before giving it to you, in order to prevent them from being used as projectiles. Water fountains are located at sections 103, 118, 122, C3, C19, C24, C38, 204 and 222.
  • Soft Drinks: Coca-cola products are the official soft drinks for the Eagles, so Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, etc. can be found throughout. Tip: if you don't drink alcohol, sign up for the Bud Light Designated Driver program at one of the kiosks (in Pepsi Plaza, near the Miller Lite tent, and inside near sections 121, 136, 206 & 226) and you get a coupon for a free, non-alcoholic drink in the stadium. You can use it for a bottle of water, a soda, coffee, or hot chocolate. You also get entered into the drawing for Designated Driver of the Game to win Eagles gear.
  • Alcohol: But if drinking is your thing, there's a wide variety to choose from. Everything from drafts, cans and aluminum bottles of domestic and foreign beers and other alcoholic drinks can be found at every turn.
  • Hot Beverages: And if you're looking to start sobering up from a day of drinking, Dunkin Donuts is the official coffee of the Eagles. Hot chocolate can be found at most of the Dunkin stands listed above, as well as some other places, where noted.

Everything else:

  • Bad Weather: Umbrellas are not allowed, so pack a poncho, a blanket or wear wet-weather clothing if it's going to rain or snow. Tip: Seat cushions are not allowed, but a folded blanket is just as good, and a couple Hot Hands under your rump make an easy seat warmer.
  • Cashless: Note that Lincoln Financial Field is cashless. Credit or Debit Card, Apple Pay, and Google Pay can be used at all concessions and pro shops. There are also stations throughout the venue where you can convert cash to a card for use in the stadium.
  • Clear Bag Policy: Any bag larger than a small, hand-held size purse must be clear and no more than 12" x 12". They enforce this pretty strictly, so make sure you follow it.
  • Electronic Tickets: All tickets to get into the stadium are electronic and need to be accessed through the Eagles app, Ticketmaster app, or from your Apple wallet. Make sure you have enough battery and a good cellular or Wi-Fi connection when entering the stadium as screenshots or pictures of tickets will not get you in.
  • First Game Certificate: if you, your kids or a friend are attending your first Eagles game you can get a free, commemorative certificate. You used to be able to stop by one of the guest services booths (near sections 121, 136, 206 & 226) to get it, but (likely due to COVID concerns) you can request it online.
  • Game Etiquette: Standing for a 3rd down on D, or a big play is fine and encouraged. But be aware of the situation. If no one is standing in front of you, you probably should be sitting, too. And when getting to your seats, wait until it is between plays.
  • Handicap/Disabilities: Guest services booths (121, 136, 206, 226) offer accommodations for fans with disabilities, like braille game guides and listening devices. There are also accessible drop-off points and seating access throughout the stadium. Find all that info here.
  • Kid Policy: Ages 2 and under are free and don't need a ticket, but have to sit on your lap. I recommend ear plugs or other protective devices for little ears, if you have to bring a small child. You can also get an ID bracelet at guess services (121, 136, 206, 226) for any age child with your section, row and seat information for them to wear, in the event they get lost or wander away.
  • Outside food: As long as it's wrapped in clear plastic and is in a bag that meets the clear bag policy, you can bring it in. No outside water or other drinks can be brought in. Tip: you can grab some crabfries or other food items to go in the 4th quarter and take them with you, but no drinks are allowed as you exit the stadium.
  • Report an issue/get information: Text 78247 with the word ASSIST, followed by a space, and then your issue or question.
  • Restrooms: Lots of places to go, and always crowded the most between quarters and at the half. Tip: Only applies to men, but the men's restrooms with the handicapped-accessible wheelchair symbol on the sign have more stalls than urinals (and sometimes no urinals at all, because they are designated as women's rooms for concerts and other non-football events.) So if you're looking to do a quick #1, look for bathrooms without it and make sure you walk around the back, if there's long lines in the front; most men's restrooms have urinals on both sides of the wall.
  • Scoreboards: behind each end zone are huge video boards that were upgraded in 2013. Although you have to deal with the advertising that takes up most of the space, it's where you'll look to watch replays of big plays or follow the action, live, if it's taking place far from your seat. Also installed in 2013, thin, electronic LED displays called "ribbon boards" wrap around most of the stadium, under the club level and the upper level. They usually have ads on them, but due to fan feedback in 2017, they are used more to display down, distance and other game information more prominently.
  • Scoreboard Messages: if you want to get a birthday, anniversary or other message on the scoreboard, you have to donate $25 to the Eagles Youth Partnership and do it by Thursday, for Sunday games.
  • Signs & Banners: only hand-held signs (nothing on a stick or pole) 2' x 2', or smaller, are allowed. That's per person, so you and 11 people in your row could each hold up a letter to spell "FlyEaglesFly", if that's your thing. Also, signs can't be offensive or vulgar, so leave the "F*** Dallas" sign in your front yard.
  • Smoking Policy: No smoking at all in the stadium. Even on the concourses. And that includes vaping or e-cigarettes. Designated sections are in Head House Plaza, and near the exit gates behind sections 101 and 113.
  • Wifi: Free Wifi is available, and was (noticeably) upgraded in 2017. It used to support 30,000 users and that's been increased and the performance speed improved. Cell service can still be spotty. I often have a hard time getting a signal with my carrier (AT&T) when I am in the stadium.
  • Wind Turbines: At some point, you've probably noticed the huge, spinning blades lining the top of the stadium. But in 2019, many needed repaired so they were all removed. No word if they will return, but The Linc is still a "green" stadium with it's more than 11,000 solar panels covering Lot K and the outside of the stadium, that help power it.
