Healthy Tailgating / Stadium Tailgating Policies
Stadium tailgating policies vary widely across the country. Collegiate and NFL teams permit hours they allow fans to tailgate, where they can do so, what behavior they deem acceptable, and how they enforce their policies. In fall 2012 and winter 2013 project staff collecting tailgating policy data from over 70 collegiate and professional venues across the country. This consisted of both an archival data review and standardized interviews with staff from each venue (administrative/athletics and local law enforcement). A matrix of this data can be viewed below or downloaded here.
