    Hi All
    A newbie here!
    wasn't sure where to post this so I have posted it in the "Introduce Yourself" Page also
    I am travelling from the UK to Florida in December the day before the Cardinals game. I know very little about football but thought it would be a great experience to attend a game. I have a few questions which I hope you may be able to help me with!! J
    Are home and away fans segregated like they are with football (Soccer) in the UK?

    Where is the best place to try and get tickets in the stadium? Is there a place in the ground that has a hard core group of fans? I want the best experience I can get

    I am staying about 20 miles away from the stadium, is it easy to get to and from the game by taxi?

    Should I arrive well before kick off? Is there good pre game entertainment?

    Apologies if these are obvious/stupid questions but like I said this is a new thing for me

    I hope you can help


    Thanks


    John

    Fans are not segregated at all. You could end up next to some Cardinals fans.

    Get your tickets from Stub Hub right now instead of waiting till the last minute at the booth. It's always a hassle on game day to get tickets. Plus you don't want to end up in a situation where tickets are sold out.

    Take an Uber to the game, Hard Rock Stadium has a drop off and pick up for Uber and it's much cheaper.

    Hi John, fellow UK fan here.

    Firstly, its not like football in the UK crowd wise i.e there is no end as such, all fans mix together. We went over for the Phins v Saints game a few years back and it was a brilliant experience. Definately get there a couple of hours before kick off to take it all in. Have ID as you will need to it get a beer !!!. I'd watch a few games on Sky before you go as well to get the hang of it. We found it a great occasion, everyone was friendly and welcoming to guests from the UK. Enjoy mate .

    Thanks for the reply mate. Anywhere you would try and get seats for? The cheapest seats seem to be up high but would the atmosphere be better at a lower level?

    Lower bowl is better for sure. It's just a matter of whether you want to pay the premium for it.
