Season and single game tailgate packages include group tickets, tables, table covers, chairs, and parking passes. Season tailgate package purchasers have first priority on the location of their tent, and will receive the same location for all games. Tent location for single game tailgate renters is determined by the date and time of purchase and receipt of full payment.
