Tailgating at WMU

Bring your own beverages, food and friends to any of the 16 campus tailgate lots before each home game.

We want everyone to enjoy tailgating in a responsible manner.

  • Tailgating lots open four hours before game time. Tailgating ends at kickoff and resumes for an hour after the game. See the Rules and Lots page for a list of lots and tailgate rules.
  • Michigan law says that drinking by anyone under 21 is illegal everywhere. That includes public and private property, indoors or out—even when tailgating.
  • Carrying an open container of alcohol on public streets or sidewalks is illegal, regardless of your age. So when you leave the tailgate, leave your beverage behind.
  • Alcohol and public disturbance laws will be enforced on campus and throughout the city.
