Tailgating - What the HELL?


• No glass bottles are permitted on the property. We ask that you bring canned beverages.
• No kegs will be allowed on property. Anyone dispensing beer from a keg will be asked to leave and the keg may be confiscated by law enforcement officials.
• No golf carts or motorized scooters of any kind permitted.
• No generators, home speakers, or DJs may be used as it is in excess of what Florida Atlantic University
defines as a tailgate party.
• Stadium parking lots will open 4 hours prior to kick-off.
• After the game kick off, individuals have 20 minutes to clear the parking lot and enter the Stadium gates
or leave the premises.

Are you freaking serious?

Re: Tailgating - What the HELL?

You'll find the same notice for most pro stadiums too.

* Glass bottles are fine;
* Just don't keep the keg out in the open;
* Generators are fine (I'm pretty sure they just dont want mobile DJ booths rolling in);
* Stadium lot "officially" opens 4 hours before kickoff, but we've never had any problems getting in earlier;
* I'm pretty sure they dont sweep the lot after kickoff, then again I'm always in my seat for the game;

And by the way, after the game they don't care how long you stay in the lots since all the cops leave.

We unknowingly have broken many of those rules almost ever game.

- Glass - all over the place
- I've seen gereerators on RVs
- I've been hanging out in the lot an hour after a game (The generally nasty stadium employees do their best to snap at everyone to leave the facilty, but they tend to leave the p[eopel in the lots alone.)
- I've seen many kegs, and upside down students drinking from them.

Yes, that's me.

I'm catching a little good-natured hell from some posters for going to root on the Owls before I zip down to Miami to see Troy visit FIU.

What a Saturday this will be!

Re: Tailgating - What the HELL?

The last three FAU games I've been to I've stayed tailgating for 2-3 hours after the game, and still nobody asked us to leave. The TV showing Direct TV  in the back of the car is a lot easier to see in the dusk after the game than it is watching at midday. No one has ever given our tailgaters any trouble. Definately bring IDs as I have been carded the last two times and I'm almost pushing 30. Also I drink out of a bottle every game I've been too there, just don't start breaking bottles and bring attention upon yourself.

umm yeeaaaa i was once part of the crowd that would bring like 5 kegs and live dj…….horrible they can't do it anymore….but i know people still bring kegs, just hide it……glass bottles they don't say much….. a guy usually comes around and hands you a trash bag, as long as you clean up after yourself and don't cause any trouble, security will be cool with you

Re: Tailgating - What the HELL?

not that it matters because I already paid for the parking pass, but I plan on getting there at 11:30am on Sat. Is anyone even going to be there to collect for parking, so my friends that are following me in their cars and don't have the pass don't have to pay for parking? I know it's only $10 just wasn't sure if any of the parking attendants would be there that early

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
