Top 12 Stay Alfred Properties Close to Downtown Football Stadiums

Anxiously counting down the days until football season officially starts? You’re in good company. Sure there’s a certain level of enjoyment watching the game at home, but there tends to be a serious lack of energy, camaraderie and that electric adrenaline you only feel when you’re inside the stadium. If you’re taking your football fandom to the next level this season and traveling for a game, there's no need to send up a Hail Mary to find the perfect place to stay – we’ve got you covered.


There’s a reason our tagline is “Your place in the city.” We only offer travel apartments in the best downtown locations, so you’re close to everything convenient and cool. It just so happens that quite a few cities feel the same way about keeping their best attractions close at hand, and they've built state-of-the-art sports stadiums in their city centers.

Traveling for a football game should be a win-win. You get to holler, cheer and root for your fav team in person, all while exploring a new city. Actually getting to the game can be daunting when you’re in a new city, but when you’re staying just blocks from the game – trust us – things get a whole lot easier.

Check out our list of Stay Alfred properties where you can either walk or take a rideshare to the football stadium in around 10 minutes.
