EUGENE, Ore. – Ducks fans will enjoy a whole new level of “tailgating nirvana” this season now that TailgatePal is offering no-hassle tailgating at Autzen Stadium.
TailgatePal has recently entered into an agreement with the University of Oregon to operate 22 premium turnkey tailgate sites directly next to the stadium’s newly completed soccer and lacrosse field. The tailgating spots will be fully equipped in a prime location with no parking space required, ensuring that cheering for the Ducks takes first priority for Oregon's biggest college football fans.
TailgatePal will be operating the reserved turnkey tailgating sites alongside Autzen Stadium at the East Gate Entrance in a newly designated area dubbed Tailgate Alley. Each tailgate package comes with a full range of tailgating equipment and set-up services so that fans can simply show up and focus on friends, food and fun.
“This new service represents a convergence of ideas between the Oregon Athletic Department and TailgatePal, with a common desire to raise the bar and offer fans an additional option to experience on Game Day,” said Greg Wells, president of TailgatePal and an Oregon alumnus. “Our vision is for Tailgate Alley to be a place where participants can gather before, during and after the game, essentially becoming a tailgating village that allows participants to enjoy the best parts of tailgating without any of the typical hassles.”
With some sites offering 47” HDTVs featuring the College Game Day package, all of the 22 reserved tailgating spots in Tailgate Alley come complete with tents, tables, tailgate chairs, coolers with ice and even options for catering. Guests can also opt to bring their own food and beverages to the sites, which will be set up in advance and ready for fans four hours prior to kick off. Guests will have use of their sites throughout the game and can stay up to two hours after the game is over to relax, talk football and watch late games.
“We are excited to offer this new tailgate option,” said Craig Pintens, Senior Athletic Director for Marketing and Public Relations. “We want to continue to look for innovative ways to improve our entire Game Day experience."
TailgatePal has tailgate packages for anything from small family gatherings to larger group events. Individual packages can accommodate as many as 50 people, and the entire area can collectively accommodate up to 600 guests. Fans will be able to purchase sites for the season or can select single games, depending on availability.
Since the spaces are expected to fill quickly, Tailgaters opting for single-game packages should make reservations well in advance. Tailgate packages go on sale to the public Monday, August 13, 2012. Additional information can be found by visiting www.tailgatepal.com or by calling (888) 269-6478.
