In preparation for this Sunday’s Super Bowl, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has launched a new public service announcement to let people know the airspace around Levi’s Stadium is a no-drone zone during the game.

According to the FAA, temporary flight restrictions will prohibit certain aircraft operations, including unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), within a 32-mile radius of the stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. The restrictions will be in effect from 2 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 7.

In turn, the FAA has created a 20-second video with the description, “Going to the big game? Have fun, cheer on your team and keep it a no-drone zone. Don’t spoil the game – leave your drone at home.” The announcement can be watched here.

“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,” says FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. “We’re working closely with our safety and security partners to spread this message as widely as possible.”
