MetLife Stadium Tailgate Ranked # 1

We are passionate about making sure our MetLife Stadium Tailgate is the best party in the lot. We have always felt MetLife is an amazing place to tailgate and now we have more proof. Check out this report below, which shows that MetLife comes in the first and second spot for NFL tailgates (Jets & Giants).

Tailgating dates back to early 1969, with its history starting on college fields across the US. But since the release of station wagons, the party has only gotten bigger and better, programming tailgating into the culture we see today in the NFL.

Ahead of the 2023/24 season, NFL fans will be planning their tailgating parties. So, which stadiums are the best for tailgating? To determine this, Betway analyzed each team’s stadium based on parking opening hours, parking prices, and retail prices of tailgating essentials (charcoal, burger patties & buns, hot dogs & buns, alcohol, and soft drink 6 packs).

  • Met Life Stadium, home of the Jets, sit comfortably in 1st place with an average tailgating index score of 5.54!
