Kansas Athletics partners with Tailgate Guys

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Tailgating on The Hill before Kansas Football games is a familiar tradition for many Jayhawk football fans. This season Kansas Athletics is upgrading that experience through a new partnership with Tailgate Guys, the nation’s leader in premium tailgate and event services. The partnership will allow Kansas fans to save time on football game days this Fall through a variety of turnkey reserved tailgate package options that include reserved locations, game day bellhop services, DISH TV services, tents, chairs, tables, coolers and other tailgating essentials. 

“We’re excited to work with Kansas Athletics to continue to enhance the gameday and fan experience in Lawrence.” said AJ Machosky, Tailgate Guys Chief Revenue Officer.  “The team at Kansas has done an outstanding job of building a unique tailgating tradition on The Hill and we’re grateful that they’re entrusting us to help amplify that experience through the Tailgate Guys brand of turnkey tailgating and game day hospitality.”

Kansas is the first school partnership in the state of Kansas and the fifth Big 12 Conference school partner for Tailgate Guys.  

Fans traveling to David Booth Kansas Memorial  Stadium for games this Fall will have access to a full range of premium pregame tailgate package options with reserved locations and a new layout on hospitality hill. A variety of package options will be available to Jayhawk football fans, all of which will include turnkey setup and breakdown, game day bellhop services, tents, tables, and chairs, with options for additional customizations.   

“Tailgating is integral to college football and creating a dynamic and family-friendly gameday experience,” said Chris Freet, Deputy AD for External Engagement. “There is a great history of tailgating on Campanile Hill, but in recent history it has been almost exclusively for large groups and corporate outings. We are excited to bring back tailgating offerings to small groups of family and friends in the most picturesque location on campus.”

Tailgate Guys is committed to easing the experience of setup, maintenance and breakdown to ensure fans can spend their time and energy enjoying good football and good company all season long.  Hospitality Hill tailgate packages will be available to the public starting on July 8.
