Tailgating and Parking Information

The UC Alumni Association invites Bearcat alumni and fans to participate in the Bearcats Blitz indoor/outdoor tailgate before home UC football games.

The “indoor tailgate” happens inside the Myers Alumni Center, with refreshments available and seating for 200+ Bearcats fans.

The traditional “outdoor tailgate” takes place in and around the parking lot adjacent to the Myers Alumni Center just north of Nippert Stadium and south of Martin Luther King Blvd, the College of Business and the Campus Green Garage. It includes food and drink vendors, plus plenty of greenspace for greeting your fellow Bearcats and having fun with friends and family.
