Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis, MN is expected to bring over 1000 private and chartered aircraft into surrounding airfields during the brief period before and after the event.

Private aircraft and drones will be restricted from flying near U.S. Bank Stadium during, before and after the SuperBowl LII. These aircraft must make plans ahead of time with local airfields for takeoffs and departures.

Temporary flight restrictions (TFR) within 30 miles of Minneapolis stadium will go into effect.

The outer boundary of  30 miles must be in contact with air traffic control and have an operating transponder.  Inner boundary has a 10-mile radius of all civilian flights with the exception of scheduled air carriers. If you find yourself within this area but not in contact with Air Traffic Control, transmit on 121.5 ASAP to avoid military intercept.

This does not include commercial, emergency, police, medical flights. Restrictions such as this are common for large sporting events like the Super Bowl.
