Consumer News: Tailgating for the big game? Here are some tips so you can do it like a pro

We’re well into football season, and for avid sports fans, that means weeks of going to games and participating in one of the most beloved sports traditions: tailgating.

At its best, tailgating is a way for passionate fans to come together on game day and revel in the team and game that they love. Its main features include great food, fun pre-game activities, and plenty of sports talk as everyone hypes themselves up for the coming contest.

Having a successful tailgating experience isn’t just reserved for the pros, though. Here’s how even the most casual fans can pull off an awesome, memorable, and safe game day.

Get your barbeque on

You might think that getting to the stadium and setting up your tailgate party is a no-brainer, but experienced parking-lot warriors will tell you that there’s more to it.

First, you’ll want to arrive early to beat traffic and find a good parking spot. Most stadiums will allow fans to park several hours before kickoff, and you’ll need every precious second to set up.

You’ll also want to cook fan favorites like burgers, hot dogs, wings, and ribs. And for those, you’re going to need a good grill. You can check out reviews on some of the top brands by looking here.

Play safely

Of course, a successful tailgating experience isn’t just about the food. To get the best experience, you’ll want to create a fun, safe environment. What happens if your tailgate gets dinged while you’re enjoying the camaraderie of your friends and fellow fans?

To avoid any headaches from a potential accident, ensure that your auto policy and warranty is up-to-date. Nothing is more of a buzz kill than not being prepared for accidents. For more information on auto warranties, visit ConsumerAffairs’ site here.

Then continue with some fun games like backyard favorites KanJam and Cornhole. Game on.

Tailgate or Tickets?

While you might be tempted to keep the party going, the biggest fans will want to make their way into the stadium for the actual sporting event. This is when it’s important to have your tickets ready.

While ticket prices vary based on the sporting event, it’s not a bad idea to shop around to make sure that you’re getting the best deal. You always have the option to buy from the team if seats aren’t sold out to season ticket holders. Plus, many online ticket sellers offer great deals.

You can also check out reviews for the best ticket websites by visiting ConsumerAffairs’ Ticket Websites Buyer’s Guide. Whether you scream “Roll tide” or “Go tigers,” you’ll have a ball — pun intended.
