Tailgate Changes

A tradition that brings together students, alumni and the community, tailgating at Winthrop’s Homecoming is one of the week’s most popular and fun events. Last year’s event attracted the largest number of tailgaters yet and prompted Winthrop’s administration to look at best practices for managing the game day experience. This year a number of changes are being implemented for the Saturday, Nov. 16, events at the Coliseum area.

These changes will lead to a safer and more enjoyable experience for all in attendance.

Tailgate Reservations

Tailgating will be spread out across more of the area surrounding the Coliseum. The Alumni Association tent will be available as in past years, as well as designated paid tailgating spots for larger student and alumni groups. For groups or families wanting to use tents or who may have more elaborate tailgate set ups, there will be a total of 48 designated spots for $20 (for groups up to 20 people) and $40 for even larger groups.
