If you live anywhere near Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, you might want to think twice before taking your drone for a flight this weekend.

That’s because the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced that the stadium and a radius upwards to 36 miles has been declared a ‘no drone zone’ and could very likely result in authorities shooting down your drone.

These restrictions begin at 2pm and last through 11:59pm local time on Sunday. If you plan on disregarding the warnings and ‘no drone zone,’ prepare yourself. The FAA says drones could be on the wrong side of ‘deadly force’ if deemed a threat.

To get the point across, the FAA has shared a clever video being shared across social media that asks drone operators to ‘bring your lucky jersey, bring your face paint, bring your team spirit […] but leave your drone at home.’
