You could be fined up to $30,000 for doing this on Super Bowl Sunday

If you enjoy a bit of drone action, keep these restrictions in mind if you're close to the action on Super Bowl Sunday.

While the hype may be focused on what is happening on the field this coming Sunday, you certainly want to keep one particular rule in mind - especially if you're in close proximity to the stadium.

Super Bowl 2024 will see the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers battle it out at Nevada's Allegiant Stadium on Sunday (February 11) - with each team hoping to be crowned the victors of LVIII (58th).

The NFL championship final usually attracts an average of 70,000 live spectators - and that's also not counting the millions of people watching from the comfort of their own homes.

But if you are one of those lucky few that have managed to land a spot at the big game, then chances are you will want to capture some footage to reminisce about.

But if your plan to do so is sending a big drone up into the air to capture the best bits, then you'll certainly have to keep in mind these rules.

Failure to do so could lead to a whooping and potentially even life-changing fine.

The Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas is a 'No Drone Zone' for Super Bowl LVIII - essentially meaning people can't fly their drone there while the action is taking place.

While that may seem pretty obvious, drones are actually also prohibited around several additional locations during the days leading up to the big event on Sunday.

So from now up until game day, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) explains how restrictions around Resorts World on Thursday (February 8) will take place 'for one nautical mile up to an altitude of 1,000 feet from between 2pm and 10pm'.

As for Friday (February 9), restrictions will be in force for 'one nautical mile up to an altitude of 1,000 feet from between 11am and 2pm' at the stadium itself.

Similar restrictions are in place at the Wynn Casino on the same day between 5pm and 11:30pm local time.

As for game day itself, restrictions begin at 11am within two nautical miles around the Allegiant Stadium and up to 2,000 feet in altitude.

But between 2:30pm and 8:30pm, these drone restrictions expand 'to a 30-nautical-mile radius and up to 18,000 feet in altitude'.

The FAA has also explained that those who operate a drone in these areas at these times without permission could face fines that exceed $30,000 or even potential prosecution.
