  • Any parking area or lot being used for parking and tailgating activities shall be provided with metal containers for the safe disposal of coals, cinders or hot ashes. Containers shall be clearly labeled “For Coal and Ash Disposal Only.” Any other trash receptacle or container shall not be used for such purpose.
  • Every effort shall be made to ensure that any coals or cinders are extinguished prior to disposal.

Drop-Off Zone and Parking for Fans with Disabilities

Those with disabilities who need a drop-off point close to the stadium can use a lane in westbound Morehead Street as it approaches Mint Street, open to vehicles with handicap placards. It will be marked by orange cones. There is a curb cut at the corner and two driveway cuts along Morehead Street for wheelchair access. See map.

To get to the stadium from the drop-off, simply go to the corner of Mint and Morehead streets. Proceed to the right on Mint Street and go under the highway overpass for Interstate 277. The stadium grounds will be on your left after you pass under the overpass. Your ticket will indicate the gate closest to your seat, but you can enter at any gate.

Please keep this drop-off location in mind as you purchase parking. Post-game traffic can be very heavy, and if the driver is parked in an area to the north of the stadium accessing the handicap lane for pick-up can be very time consuming.

Bank of America Stadium does not have reserved handicap parking on stadium grounds, but it has a limited number of spaces allocated for accessible parking in Lot 1, also known as the Mint Street Parking Facility, located at the corner of Mint and Graham streets and directly across from the stadium’s North Gate. Parking for fans with disabilities is available on a first-come, first-served basis for vehicles displaying a handicap placard. This location offers convenience and ease, with three entrances and exits. Grilling and open flames are prohibited in this parking lot.

Lot 1 parking passes are available for purchase.
