First-come, first-served tailgating is sold out for the November 11 Homecoming Game VS. CAL. For those of you that have a pass we want to let you know about some procedural changes for the game.  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 restrictions:


7:00 ?- 8:30 a.m.         Tailgate vehicles can queue on Second St. between Campbell Ave. and Mountain Ave. Tailgate vehicles will not be allowed to line up on the curb along the UA Mall due to Homecoming tent setup.     

8:30 ?- 8:45 a.m.         Tailgate vehicles queued on Second St. will be escorted to, and parked first on, the tailgating grounds

8:45 ?- 9:45 a.m.         Tailgate vehicles may enter the tailgating grounds from Campbell Ave. Cherry Ave will be closed to all traffic

9:45 a.m. ?- noon        No vehicle access to tailgating area (regardless of permit) due to Homecoming Parade traffic

10 a.m. ?- noon           Homecoming Parade

1:30 pm                      Kick-off


  • Cherry Ave. will be closed to all tailgate traffic for the day.
  • Tailgate vehicles will not be allowed to line up on the curb along the UA Mall due to Homecoming tent set up. Parking and Transportation will issue tickets to any vehicle that attempts to line up along the UA Mall. There will be queuing of tailgate vehicles along the South curb (East bound) of Second St. from Campbell Ave to Mountain Ave. Please see the enclosed map for further instructions. In other words, if you would like to line up early you will need to do so on Second St. rather than the usual curbside area along the UA Mall. At 8:30 a.m. tailgate vehicles queued on Second St. will be escorted to the entrance and parked first on the tailgating grounds. After all the tailgate vehicles that were queued are on the field any vehicles needing to enter will be let in from Campbell.
  • Tailgaters entering after 8:45 a.m. but before 9:45 a.m. must enter the tailgating area from Campbell Ave. Cherry Ave. will be closed to all traffic.  
  • At 9:45 a.m. the entrance to the tailgating area will be closed due to the homecoming parade. It will remain closed until the parade is over at approximately noon. During this time there will be no vehicle access to the tailgating grounds.
  • Due to the additional Alumni Association “Tents on the Mall”, space will be limited.  Please remember that each tailgate will be allowed 10 ft. to the side of the vehicle
  • Only vehicles with a tailgating pass will be let into the tailgating grounds. Vehicles needing to drop off supplies or people will need to do so outside of the mall as no vehicles will be let in without a pass.


Please read closely the changes above so that we can make this a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone.  If you have any questions regarding your tailgate, please call Nick Celi at 520-621-0800.  We look forward to you joining us for Arizona Football and tailgating!
