WATCH: FAA Warns That Super Bowl Is ‘No Drone Zone’

The Federal Aviation Administration has launched a new public service campaign on social media, warning that the airspace around Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. — site of Sunday’s Super Bowl game between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers — is a No Drone Zone.

Temporary flight restrictions will already be in effect for a good portion of that day, creating a 32-mile radius around the stadium that prohibits certain aircraft. The ban is in effect from 2 p.m. Pacific time until 11:59 p.m. that night.

But just in case some folks were unaware that the flight restrictions also include drones, the FAA wanted to make sure.

The agency produced a 20-second video making it clear that the stadium and surrounding area is a No Drone Zone. The video appears on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the FAA website.

“With so many drones being sold for recreational use, we want to do everything we can to get the word out that the game is a No Drone Zone,” FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said in a statement. “We’re working closely with our safety and security partners to spread this message as widely as possible.”

Last fall, a drone crashed into the main stadium at the U.S. Open Tennis Championships, albeit in a section where nobody was sitting.
