COLLEGE STATION-Texas A&M University is pleased to announce a new football game day program that will expand and enhance the tailgating opportunities on the Aggieland campus. Tailgate Guys will offer a full range of turnkey tailgating services to guests and will be located at the Simpson Drill Field, just north of Kyle Field, as well as part of Duncan Drill Field across the street from the President's house.

Founded in 2009 at Auburn University, Tailgate Guys has been providing clients with a first-class, turnkey tailgate experience for four years. The organization has recently partnered with the Chick-fil-A Bowl to become the official tailgate service provider for both the Chick-fil-A Kickoff and Bowl games in Atlanta. Tailgate Guys will also serve as the official event management group for Texas A&M Athletics by managing all large, corporate tailgating.

"Tailgating has grown so much over the past few years and Texas A&M is pleased to announce our partnership with Tailgate Guys," Neil Peltier, Texas A&M's tailgating coordinator, said. "The location on Simpson Drill Field is fantastic and the ability to just come and enjoy the festive atmosphere without having to set things up or tear it down, is a great service for our fans."

"We are excited to be a part of the Aggie tailgate community with this new program," said Parker Duffey, President, Tailgate Guys. "Texas A&M fans and their game day experience is our top priority. This program provides hassle free tailgating, which has proven to be very popular based on the performance of our existing partnerships with peer SEC institutions."

All tailgating equipment, which can include tents, tables, chairs and even full media packages, will be set up in advance. Guests will also have the option to reserve coolers filled with ice, paper products and utensils, as well as several choices for full-service catering.

Reservations are expected to fill quickly as Tailgate Guys has been fully booked with stand-by lists for several years at Auburn. Tailgate packages go on sale to the public on Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012. Additional information can be found by visiting www.tailgateguys.com or by calling 979-775-1700.
