HOMECOMING TAILGATING PROCEDURES
Thanks for helping to make this season’s Arizona Football tailgating one of the best years ever. We want to let you know about some procedural changes for the October 25 Homecoming game versus USC.
Two great UA Homecoming traditions, the Homecoming Parade and the Alumni Associations’ “Tents on the Mall” have necessitated changes to our entrance policies for this game.
Please note the following schedule and entrance changes:
1:00 p.m. Tailgate parking/loading on Eastbound University off of Cherry. Alcohol cannot be consumed until 2:00 p.m.
1:30 – 2:30 p.m. Drop-offs for your tailgates will be allowed. No drop-offs will be allowed on the mall area before or after this window under any circumstances.
2:30 – 4:30 p.m. Cherry Ave will be closed to all traffic in preparation for the Homecoming Parade. (No tailgaters will be allowed to enter the Tailgating grounds under any circumstances during this time). There is no tailgate line during this time.
3:30 – 4:30 p.m. Homecoming Parade
4:45 – 5:30 p.m. Tailgaters with valid permits only may enter the tailgating grounds.
7:15 p.m. Kick-off
We will continue to enforce the rules about waiting for another tailgater to park next to you as well as requesting certain spots. It is a first-come first serve pass and you will be parked based on the order you arrive. Regardless of when your vehicle is parked on the tailgate grounds, alcohol consumption may not begin until 2:00 pm.
Homecoming Parking Procedures
All Arizona Football Parking Permit Holders should plan on arriving earlier to access various lots due to Homecoming festivities on campus. Vehicles will have no southbound access on Cherry Ave from 2:30-4:30 p.m. to accommodate the Homecoming Parade around the UA Mall. Permit holders are encouraged to use Enke Drive or National Championship Drive as alternatives to access the 6093 lot (C Spaces) and the Cherry Avenue Garage. For your convenience, planning an arrival to stadium lots by 5 p.m. is encouraged.
We are looking forward to a fun and exciting game and we thank you for your cooperation.
