If a South Carolina home football game is Rescheduled due to COVID-19 or any other reason, the tailgate rental will automatically transfer to the new game date. If the Customer is not able to attend the newly rescheduled tailgate rental, the Customer will have the option to receive the originally agreed upon amount credit toward a future tailgate rental through Tailgate Group (This includes all the locations where we operate and applies through the end of 2022).
If a South Carolina home football game is Cancelled and not rescheduled due to COVID-19 or any other reason, the Company will refund the Customer all charges already paid to Tailgate Group.
Yes! This service is for visiting single game fans and Gamecock Club members alike.
We set up our tailgates in Gamecock Park (see map at the bottom of the page). Regarding the exact location within Gamecock Park, you have a couple of options:
Option 1: We can set up your group’s tailgate in the Rice Football Campus (Tent Only Area) in front of the practice facility in Gamecock Park. This grass tent only space is about a 4-5 minute walk from the stadium. No extra parking cost to be set up in this area.
Option 2: We can set up your group’s tailgate beside your assigned tailgate parking space in Quads 1 through 4, Premium North & South, or the Garnet Society lots. These areas are ideal for fans who prefer to tailgate directly beside their car.
If you wish to be set up in these areas (Quads 1 through 4, Premium North & South, or the Garnet Society lots) and do not posses an assigned spot, you can contact the Gamecock Club directly or purchase a parking space in Gamecock Park 3rd-party via Stubhub or Vivid Seats. After you receive your parking pass, let us know the spot number and we can then set up the tailgate package directly behind the parking space.
You will be allowed to pull up beside the Rice Football Campus and unload your tailgate items, then park elsewhere or purchase a discounted parking spot in Quad 5 ($30-50 price range and 100 yards away from Rice Football Campus).
We will set up and maintain equipment owned and provided by Tailgate Group. You are welcome to bring and personally set up your own permitted equipment that does not exceed the allocated space for the reserved tailgate spot.
Catering now can be delivered to any patron who books the basic 10 x 10 Tent Package through Tailgate Group. Tailgate Group will work with Capital City and Docs BBQ to make sure your ordered food and drinks are at your tailgate spot when you arrive on Saturdays.
No. Reason being, the caterers need be able to deliver and prepare food and drink packages ahead of time and before Gamecock Park Opens.
Yes. As long as the additional personal equipment is within the guidelines of Gamecock Park and The University of South Carolina. We provide the tailgate foundation and you can decorate it accordingly.
Gamecock Park opens 6 hours prior to kick off and stays open 2 hours after the game. When you arrive to your tailgate everything will completely set up as ordered. We will have multiple Headquarter tents set up throughout the park, with representatives ready to answer any questions or concerns.
No, we break down all the equipment and your only job is to show up and have fun! Helping with throwing away your trash is much appreciated, but not required.
We require 100% payment up front to book a tailgate on a game by game basis. And if tailgating packages are still available for that game we will take orders up until Wednesday night of that game week. Season packages will require 50% before the first game and the other 50% before the fourth game.
If the game is still being played, we will still tailgate. If the game date is changed because of an Act of God (Bad Weather), then we will give customers the option to tailgate on that date or receive credit towards another game. Any food or beverages that are purchased will have to be arranged separately with our exclusive vendors.
