Utah football partners with premium tailgate and event service


SALT LAKE CITY— The Utah athletics department has partnered with Tailgate Guys, the nation’s leader in premium tailgate and event services, for its home football games. While fans will continue to renew their tailgate passes through Utah Athletics, Tailgate Guys will offer enhancements to the tailgate experience. The partnership will allow Utah football fans and alumni to reserve tailgate packages featuring premium locations, tents, chairs, tables, coolers and other tailgating essentials, along with setup, breakdown and maintenance.

Utah tailgate packages will be available to the public starting on April 1. For more information about Tailgate Guys and to reserve a package please call (801) 386-2404 or visit

“Tailgating at Rice Eccles Stadium and along Guardsman Way has always been a great tradition for Utah fans and we’re happy to add a premium option to that experience,” said Scott Kull, Utah Deputy Director of Athletics. “Tailgate Guys offers a very convenient and high-quality service to fans who are pressed for time or want to enhance their tailgate. Tailgate Guys is a terrific addition to the Utah game-day experience.”

Fans traveling to Salt Lake City for games will also benefit from the partnership, which will offer them access to a full range of premium pregame tailgate package options for groups as small as five to large-scale events of 1,000 or more. Each package includes turnkey setup and breakdown, bellhop services, high peak tents, DISH media packages and local catering.

“Expanding into the state of Utah is a big move for Tailgate Guys” said Parker Duffey, Tailgate Guys’ CEO.  “We think there’s a massive opportunity to continue to enhance the already incredible game day experience that Utah Athletics has established in Salt Lake City and we look forward to working with our new partner to truly reinforce tailgating for Ute football fans this fall.”

Utah is the fourth Pac-12 partnership for Tailgate Guys and the first in the state of Utah.
