Few venues connect such an extensive history to their tenants: Since opening in 1929, Sanford Stadium has been home turf for the Georgia Bulldogs. After taking a look at Georgia Tech's Grant Field, Dr. Steadman Vincent Sanford decided to work with the University to build a bigger stadium than their rival's arena. With the help of a loan from the school's athletic association, the dream came true in October of 1929, with UGA Football parking between the hedges for good.
Still very much in use today, Sanford Stadium has the capacity to seat over 92,700 roaring bulldog fans, singing Glory, Glory with all their hearts. To hold that many people, the stadium has to be enormous, as it is the 8th-largest stadium in the U.S. not used for racing, and the 14th compared to non-racing stadiums in the rest of the world. With so many devoted fans, finding Sanford Stadium parking can be difficult, especially in the hot Georgia sun. If the devoted Bulldogs fan plans ahead, they can book a University of Georgia football parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz. The Georgia Bulldogs didn't begin at Sanford Stadium, but rather back at Herty Field in 1892, when the field's namesake, Dr. Charles Herty, formed the team. It was very early in their history, on Feb. 20, 1892, when UGA faced Auburn University, a rivalry that has continued to this day, earning the appellation of being the Deep Souths Oldest Rivalry. The Bulldogs played their first game at Sanford Field on October 12, 1929, where they defeated Yale 15-0, with all the points scored by Vernon Catfish Smith.
Sanford Field also has some rather unique structural features. For instance, unlike most football fields that have a north-south orientation, Sanford is faces east to west, which makes it hard for opposing players to see when the sun shines in their eyes. The famous Privet hedges have surrounded Sanford since the first game against Yale, and have only been damaged twice; once when they were removed for the 1996 Summer Olympics, and once on October 7, 2000, when fans tore down the goalposts in celebration. The hedges are still there, so unless you're inside the stadium, the game is going to be hard to see as a result. If you book a Georgia Football parking spot with ParkWhiz ahead of time, you can see the Bulldogs charge, while the other team's fans have to hunt for parking late into the evening.
With ParkWhiz, you can book your UGA football parking spot before the grass on Sanford Stadium has dew on it. All you have to do is find your UGA game, book your Georgia football parking spot and print your parking pass. When you bring your ParkWhiz parking pass with you, all you need to worry about is memorizing Glory, Glory before the game starts so you can sing along.

How do I present my my pass on-site?
Easy peasy! As the vast majority of locations in our network accept a mobile pass, this means you can use your phone or other smart device to show proof of your prepaid purchase once you arrive at the parking facility. To be sure, verify the instructions on your pass to confirm the validation method. That section is titled "When You Arrive" in-app or "How To Park" if viewing on a desktop or mobile web.
For a seamless, no-printer-required experience, check out the ParkWhiz app! Thousands of space at your fingertips. Rest assured that if searching and booking on a mobile device, we won't show you any locations that require a printed pass! At least not until cars come equipped with printers!
If your location does not accept mobile passes, you'll need to print the pass before leaving the house.
Do I have in-and-out privileges?
In most instances, no. The majority of locations on ParkWhiz, including all those in New York City, do not allow re-entry.
If any specific parking facility does allow for you to come & go during the reserved timeframe, you'll see a "Reentry Allowed" amenity icon listed; this is shown in the details section both pre-purchase and post-purchase.
If you don't see anything on the listing page pertaining to specifically to reentry privileges, it's best to assume that you will not be allowed to come and go throughout the duration of your parking pass.
Are there any additional fees on site?
Generally, no. What you see online is what you pay as long as you park within the timeframe on your parking pass. Any time parked outside the arrival or departure listed on your pass will likely incur an additional onsite fee, as determined by the parking provider. ParkWhiz purchases include tax.
The only exception to the above pertains to oversize vehicle fees, which may apply to any vehicle larger than a sedan. Fee amounts vary between individual Parking Operators, and will be assessed on-site if you do not prepay for an oversize vehicle through our platform.
Although pricing structures are determined individually by the facility owner/operator, ParkWhiz prices tend to be cheaper than drive-up in most cases!
