Group organizers are encouraged to RSVP early to claim one of the 50 tailgate spots. The last date for any group to RSVP will be announced a few months prior to Tiger Tailgate 2024.

Tailgate spots will be assigned, and the group organizer will receive the location, parking pass, and tailgate map prior to check-in. Feel free to invite as many alumni and friends as you'd like, but they will need to park in the many open parking lots on campus. Only one car is permitted to park in the reserved Tiger Tailgate parking areas.

As the group organizer, you’ll be the point of contact for your group. The University can assist you with promoting your tailgate to your group. Please let us know if you need emails for personal invites upon registration.

Don't miss out on this unforgettable Homecoming Tailgate experience.
