Manchester, N.H. (September 23) -- Beginning with Saturday’s home game against Pace University, Saint Anselm College will now be allowing tailgating at all home football games. Game time for Saturday is 1 p.m., with the tailgating area being in the picnic grove from 10 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.
The cost is going to be $10.00 PER CAR and will give them entrance into the picnic grove area. People walking to the picnic area and NOT parking in the tailgating lot will have to pay $5.00 to tailgate in the picnic grove. Students wishing to walk into the tailgate area will also have to pay $5.00 to enter the picnic grove, as well as be over the age of 21. Alcohol will be allowed in the picnic grove area.
In addition to the charge to enter the picnic grove, all fans will still have to purchase a game ticket for admission into the stadium. Ticket prices are $6.00 for adults, $3.00 for children 12 and over, as well as $3.00 for senior citizens and $3.00 for students from the opposing school. All children under the age of 12 are admitted free of charge. In addition, Saint Anselm faculty and students are admitted FREE with a valid Saint Anselm ID.
The designated parking area for tailgating will be the area directly across from the Grappone Stadium stands, closest to the trees and extending to the picnic grove. Signs, as well as parking attendants, will be visible to direct fans to the proper tailgating parking area. In addition, the Will Call window and Player Pass List will be located at the lower entrance closest to the tailgating area at Grappone Stadium.
"We are excited to announce that the athletic department and the Saint Anselm Football Gridiron Club will be teaming up together to make a tailgating area available for our fans,” said Dr. Jo-Ann Nester, director of athletics. “We want the game day atmosphere at Grappone Stadium to be fun and festive and we think the addition of pre-game tailgating will help achieve that goal.”
