Tailgating

To help cheer on the Tigers, Trinity University allows football tailgating in designated areas (see map below). Bring your grills, tents, and drinks, and show off your Tiger spirit!

Tailgating is permitted only in designated areas, see attached map, and is open to Tiger fans of all ages.
