Will the SEC see more luxury tailgating experiences?


College football attendance has been down across the country for the last several years, and Georgia Southern is trying to combat that with an amusing spin on tailgating.

It’s an interesting development and one that pushes to help fans enjoy the in-game experience more.

Georgia Southern Sports Properties and Gameday Traditions teamed up to produce the ultimate luxury tailgating experience for fans. Prices, however, are rather steep, at $5,000 per game, according to the team’s website.

Here’s a photo collage on the website:


Here’s the description from the team’s website:

The suite can accommodate dozens of guests with almost 400 square feet of indoor entertaining space that includes four flat screen HD satellite TVs, wet bar, air conditioning and a private bathroom. You also have the ability to move the party outside with satellite television, outdoor furniture, exterior beverage refrigerator and propane grill.

Tailgating is one of the biggest draws for SEC fans, but could this actually help fans show up to more games?

  • Why not just stay home and have a watch party? That’s basically all these mini houses are doing. The whole point of tailgating it to get out and mingle with people before the game.

    • Exactly what I was going to say. Just stay home if you’re going to do this. I’m all for having a tv and a couch or something but at least put it outside so you can talk to other fans and have a good time.

  • Gives you the best of both worlds. You got a party in the front yard and then when you want some alone time you got that too.
