    Credential requests must be submitted by the assigning sports editor or sports director prior to 12:00 p.m. ET on Friday, April 4th, to ensure that parking passes be received in a timely manner.

A government-issued ID is required for pickup and each individual must claim his/her own pass.

    Parking

If approved, parking passes will be shipped via FedEx no later than the Wednesday before a game to either the sports editor/director or designated attendee using the media outlet's FedEx account number.
