Our Mission

Gameday Tailgate Experience (“GTE”) is a unique transformation of an already adored national past time—tailgating at sporting events. GTE is a full service tailgate event that aggregates all of the individualized components of the typical tailgate and provides fans with a one stop, one price, all-inclusive pre-game event on a scale that has never been seen before. GTE partners with well-established vendors to supply fans with food, beverages, entertainment and a designated tented area to gather and enjoy tailgating among fellow supporters. GTE eliminates the hassle of organizing all the moving parts and separate expenses for individual fan tailgates, while maintaining the camaraderie and festive nature that make tailgating such an indispensable aspect of going to sporting events.

Our Story

With the rise of the Sports Industry, more and more people can attend Professional Sports Games and even more can Tailgate around Stadiums. With so many fans Tailgating before Games, it is often hard to find the best place to party and get excited for the Game. Many Tailgates are private, too expensive, unregulated, or just boring. Gameday Tailgate Experience (“GTE”) set out to change that by offering Sports Fans the most fun and complete Pre-Game Tailgate: Food, Drinks, and Entertainment all in 1 safe and secure location!

Organizing a Tailgate is quite time consuming and expensive if doing it on your own, but everyone should be able to Tailgate before games without spending a fortune. GTE Tailgate Experiences are ready when you arrive and have Tailgating essentials, plus awesome features you can’t find at other Tailgates! Besides Food and Drinks, GTE Tailgates provide fans a Large, Outdoor space to talk about the Game with both Home and Away team fans, listen to Live music, play Tailgating Games, watch Pre-Game Football Coverage on TVs, sit and relax under large Tents, bid on exclusive Sports, Entertainment, and Music memorabilia, meet and Tailgate with former professional athletes, sports personalities, celebrities, and musical guests, take memorable pictures in a photobooth, and interact with fun and engaging Sponsors! Bathrooms, Seating, and Security are prevalent at every Tailgate, making our Tailgates some of the Largest Pre-Game Tailgates in Sports!

Each Tailgate can hold up to 2,000 guests and is open to the public, including both home and away team fans, creating a unique Pre-Game atmosphere that is fun and enjoyable for fans of any age! Whether you are going to watch your team play at home or are traveling to a different city to watch your team play, GTE has the Tailgate for you. Experience a new way to Tailgate that is cost-effective, fun, and memorable. Join us for your favorite teams’ games and Tailgate Together!
