"Imagine a New Jersey Super Bowl with no tailgating. The scenario isn't out of the question, according to a report by The Record that outlines security surrounding the big game.
The New Jersey Sports and Exhibition Authority says the entire Meadowlands sports complex will undergo a "lockdown" the week leading up to the Super Bowl, set to be held Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, the report said.
Officials said the entire complex will be sealed off beginning Jan. 27, and only those with credentials will be allowed to enter, according to the report.
Meanwhile, game-day parking passes will likely be difficult to obtain. Jim Minish, the authority's vice president, said the number of available spaces will be reduced by about 60 percent from a usual Sunday football game because of security and the need to create space for TV station trucks, according to the report.
Officials have even discussed having no tailgating at all because of parking space concerns, the report said. Details are still being worked out, including whether accessories like grills will be allowed, according to the report."
