NORFOLK, Va. – Tailgating reservations are still available for the 2015 Norfolk State University football season.

The cost of a tailgating space measuring 22 feet x 22 feet for season ticket holders is $85 per game or $300 for a season pass for all four home games in 2015, a savings of $40 off the collective single-game prices. Each season ticket holder is limited to one tailgating space.

For non-season ticket holders, prices for tailgating spaces cost $140 for a single game or $560 for a season pass and also include two game tickets.

Tailgating spaces are currently still being sold in two locations: the picnic area adjacent to Joseph Echols Hall (the east side of the football stadium), and the outside basketball courts between the west side of the stadium and Marty L. Miller Baseball Field.

*** It was also announced in September that tailgating in the picnic area for Homecoming on Nov. 7 will be limited to those with a game ticket. In order to enter the tailgating area that day, all fans must show their game ticket. ***

Along with tailgating spots, NSU athletics is also selling spaces for recreational vehicles (RVs). Prices for those spaces are $100 for a single game or $360 for a season pass for season ticket holders. Prices for non-season ticket holders go for $150 for a single game or $600 for a season pass. The location for RV tailgating spaces will be assigned by the department of athletics and NSU Parking Services.

Tailgating lots will open four and a half hours before the start of each game and close three hours after the conclusion of the game. Additional non-tailgating parking spaces are available in Lot 34 (behind the NSU police station) for $5 on game days.

The 2015 NSU football home schedule begins on Sept. 26 with the Battle of the Bay against Hampton at William “Dick” Price Stadium at 4 p.m. The Spartans will also host North Carolina A&T on Oct. 10 and Savannah State on Nov. 7, both at 2 p.m., and South Carolina State on Nov. 14 at 1 p.m.

The Nov. 7 contest against the Tigers will serve as this year’s Homecoming.

Tailgating spaces can be purchased by calling (757) 823-8152 or mailing the tailgating order form available here. Checks or money orders must be made payable to NSU Department of Athletics.
