Football Gameday at Tailgate Town every Saturday. For everyone who is planning on coming out to
watch the Miami RedHawks football team this year, or maybe thinking about, or
maybe it never crossed your mind at all until now, it doesn't matter because
Tailgate Town is definitely for you.
"Tailgate Town has become the pregame experience as it's where the
fun and games begin for students, alumni, youth organizations, and our sports
programs. The concert series line up is the best it's ever been, plus the food
is made to order. And admission is always free," stated Anthony J. Azama,
Assistant AD for Marketing, Sales and Licensing.
We like to ask our fans the same
question we ask our athletes and our students; Are you all in? If your answer
is yes, which we know it is, then there is no reason for you not to contact us
about getting a hospitality package for any group size to get the full
experience of Tailgate Town. The hospitality package includes reserved tickets,
a tent, tables, chairs, signage, visits from Swoop and the Miami Cheerleaders,
and entertainment from the MU Pep Band. If that's not enough, Tailgate town
also features live music, interactive games, food, and fun for the whole
family. To throw in even more incentive, a group of 20 or more can purchase
individual game day tickets for only $10 each (a 50% savings off the
single-game ticket price!) and for an extra $2 you can upgrade your order to
add a hotdog and soft drink.
The bands we have for you this year
My Girl Friday (9/8/12) - Plays
a variety of rock music from the 80s the 90s and the 2000s

packages, please contact the Sales and Service Department at (513) 529-1611.
