Instructions How to Access Soccer Park During Levi's Stadium Events

September 1, 2016

Please follow these instructions to access Soccer Park when there are events held at Levi's Stadium.

Give yourself extra time, tell your team and your opponents to expect some sort of issues, but if they follow your instructions, and not Mapquest or Google Maps, they will do fine.
