Special Event TFR for Super Bowl Sunday – February 2, 2020
The FAA will publish a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) for Super Bowl LIV centered on Hard Rock Stadium.

The TFR will have a 10-nautical- mile inner core and a 30-nautical-mile outer ring.

The TFR will not affect regularly scheduled commercial flights flying in and out of Miami International Airport (MIA) or Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL). Emergency medical, public safety and military aircraft may enter the TFR in coordination with air traffic control.

The FAA will post the full text and graphic depiction of the Super Bowl LIV TFR later in January.
