To ensure adequate preparation for catering and beverage, and due to space limitations at our offsite venue, we had to close registration for the experience and safety of participants.
What can I expect at the tailgate?
Please prepare for large crowds. The tailgate will feature several tents in a fenced in area on The Boulevard. There will be a live band, a BBQ buffet, and bars with vodka, whiskey, beer, hard seltzer, and non-alcoholic beverage options. Appearances by spirit programs and university administration starts at 3:00 p.m. Spirit items will be available while supplies last. Wear maroon!
Can I still register after the deadline?
Pre-registration closed on Wednesday, December 20 at Noon CST. Walk-up availability will be VERY LIMITED and not guaranteed. Walk-ups will be allowed based on crowd flow and actual availability of space. The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl is hosting the AT&T FirstNet Fan Zone, a free Fan Zone area located directly across from the West side stadium entrance. Everyone can enjoy all the interactive booths and first responder displays. The stadium gates open 90 minutes before kickoff.
Do we have a waitlist for walk-ups?
No, we are not running a waitlist for walk-ups. Texas State University is closed starting December 23 and staff will have limited availability to respond to emails.
Will I get an email confirmation if I am pre-registered?
Pre-registered participants will receive a confirmation email on Thursday, December 21 to expedite entrance into the tailgate area. Please read advance details and be prepared to show your confirmation email at the tailgate to receive your wristband and drink tickets.
What do I bring to the tailgate?
Please read advance details and be prepared to show your confirmation email at the tailgate to receive your wristband and drink tickets. In case of limited cell service due to gameday crowds, we recommend taking a screen shot of your confirmation email where your name and tailgate ticket types are listed. Please do not bring chairs, personal coolers, beverages, and other large items to the tailgate area. You will be asked to return such items to your vehicle prior to entering the Alumni Association fenced area. Please note there is a clear bag policy at the stadium.
Where can I find parking and other game day information?
