App State Athletic Director Doug Gillin announced two new post-game initiatives, starting on Saturday’s homecoming game versus Wyoming, pertaining to tailgating and field access in order to “enhance the post-game experience.”
Below is a portion of Gillin’s message released on Tuesday.
Tickets are still available for Saturday’s game that kicks off at Kidd Brewer Stadium at 3:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online by clicking HERE, by phone at (828) 262-2079 or in person at the Appalachian State athletics ticket office, located at the Holmes Center.
Thanks to great interest from fans and tremendous support from campus leaders, we are happy to announce that postgame tailgating will now be permitted following football games at Kidd Brewer Stadium. The postgame tailgating period will begin immediately following the conclusion of the contest and last for one hour. Please note that the postgame tailgating period does not start until clock hits 0:00 at The Rock — tailgating is not permitted at any time while the game is in progress.
POST-GAME FIELD ACCESS As a special event in honor of homecoming and the Year of the Fan, we invite all fans to join the Mountaineers on the playing field at Kidd Brewer Stadium following the conclusion of Saturday’s game against Wyoming. Fans are invited to access the field via the gate at the northwest corner (the corner closest to Owens Field House and the Appalachian sideline) and stay until the conclusion of the Marching Mountaineers’ postgame performance. We ask that fans show great respect to both teams’ student-athletes and coaches when on the field after the game and, as with pregame tailgating, we ask that you enjoy postgame tailgating responsibly and utilize designated drivers to ensure that everyone arrives home safely.
