The Charlotte 49ers are partnering with Tailgate Guys to enhance football game days. Tailgate Guys is considered the nation’s leader in premium tailgate and event services, and starting this fall, members of Niner Nation will have access to reserve turnkey and premium tailgate services just steps from Jerry Richardson Stadium.

"We want to create a fun football game day culture for Niners fans, and tailgating is such a huge part of that,” said Mike Hill, director of athletics. “Tailgate Guys is the best in the business and will provide easy options for our fans to literally just show up to games and tailgate without any setup hassle. This is another major step for our program to align with such a highly regarded partner in Tailgate Guys."

This new tailgate community will offer premium items and services, including a bellhop service, turnkey setup and takedown, high peak tents and more for groups as small as five guests to large-scale events hosting 1,000-plus individuals. Charlotte will offer options that include coolers with ice, media and TV packages and various catering options to enhance the game day experience.

Charlotte 49ers donors and fans can expect the high level of tailored services from Tailgate Guys that has allowed them to build their industry-leading reputation, while simultaneously focusing on driving innovation and enhancements as game day needs and demands continue to evolve.

Parker Duffey, president and CEO of Tailgate Guys, stated, “I met Mike Hill seven years ago in his office at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. We learned a ton from Mike and the team on what it means to be a true partner and that's exactly what we’ll be for his new team in Charlotte. We are excited for Mike and his plans at Charlotte, and we look forward to locking arms with the Niner Nation to bolster their game day culture.”
