Home Plate Tailgate New for Gameday
Auburn has released more information on one of their newest gameday enhancements: basically a beer garden in the Plainsman Park Parking lot. The release doesn’t mention alcohol, but I have confirmed that alcohol will be sold. This is a big step towards alcohol sales in the stadium, IYAM.
Auburn has announced Auburn Athletics has introduced the Home Plate Tailgate, a new gameday tailgate area in the Plainsman Park parking lot. The space is open to the public and creates a tailgating destination close to the action of Jordan-Hare Stadium.
On the corner of Heisman and Donahue Dr., the location provides fans all the action of Tiger Walk and the Spirit March. It is also in close proximity to the Verizon Autograph Tent and the Tiger Tailgate Pregame Show near the campus green space.
The Home Plate Tailgate will open four hours prior to kickoff, with a sound stage and local, live entertainment each week. The tailgate will feature TVs for live college football game viewing and tailgate games.
Once in the area, fans will have access to restrooms and tents for shade. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Admission to the area is $5, and tickets may be purchased at the Plainsman Park box office.
