Tailgating is a cornerstone of the Ohio Football experience! Make a day of it in Athens by arranging a pregame tailgate for your group.

Pepsi Tailgreat Park Presented by Holzer Health System
Every home Ohio football game, the park across from Peden Stadium is transformed into Pepsi Tailgreat Park presented by Holzer Health System.

Tailgreat Park is a great way to meet and mingle with fellow Bobcat fans before the game. The park features inflatable games, band performances on select dates, live radio remotes, and cornhole. Before each game, Pepsi Tail-Great Park is visited with a special performance by the Marching 110.

Groups of all sizes can reserve tent space in Tailgreat Park at an affordable price. Space is limited, and groups are encouraged to reserve their spot early. Click here for the reservation form or call 800-575-2287.

Your reservation includes tent, table and chairs. Groups are permitted to provide their own catering, or we can work with you to arrange the perfect catering option for your needs.

Ohio Bobcat Club Hospitality Village
For each home football game this year, Ohio Bobcat Club members can enjoy the company of other Bobcat fans in the Ohio Bobcat Club Hospitality Village.

All current Ohio Bobcat Club members will have access to the Ohio Bobcat Club Hospitality Village. Simply show your membership card at the entrance for admittance to you and your household. The Ohio Bobcat Club Hospitality Village is located at the corner of Richland Avenue and Shafer Street, just across the street from Tailgreat Park. This premium tailgate area will open three hours prior to kickoff and will close at kickoff for each game.

Indoor Pregame Hospitality
For those groups looking to stay out of the weather, we offer several indoor pregame hospitality areas in the campus buildings around Peden Stadium. Host a pregame reception, watch a movie or host a special program for your group. Call 800-575-228 to arrange your reservation.

Alcohol Policy
In Tailgreat Park, groups desiring alcohol should request to have their tent placed within the specified permitted space. Within this space, beer is sold for $5, with water and soft drinks also available. Please note that per State of Ohio Law, individuals and groups renting tent space are not permitted to bring their own alcoholic beverages inside their tent. Fans not renting a tent are encouraged to tailgate responsibly inside Tailgreat Park.

Outside of Tailgreat Park, fans are reminded to obey all State of Ohio open container laws and tailgate responsibly. Additionally, fans must not take up adjoining parking spaces during their tailgate.
