Seminole Boosters and the Florida State Athletics Department have released guidelines that allow Seminole Booster donors to tailgate at Seminole home football games in 2020.

“We are glad to be able to offer tailgating to our fans for the 2020 home football season, and we realize that it is an important part of the game day experience for many ticket holders,” said FSU Director of Athletics David Coburn.

In order to promote a safe environment, FSU has adopted the following:

· All parking lots will open three hours before kickoff this season.

· Patrons will be limited to individual tailgates at their own spaces.

· All attendees are asked to maintain the six-foot social distancing standard between individuals outside of family/friends as well as between tailgate areas.

· All patrons are encouraged to wear facemasks when traveling through parking lots as well as while socializing.

“Just as it is with so many things in our society during this pandemic, we ask that our donors take responsibility for adhering to the tailgating guidelines, and make good decisions for the safety of our community so that we can continue to move forward with a safe football season,” said Coburn. “If we as a Seminole family cannot create a tailgating environment that protects the health and safety of each other, it may be necessary to revisit this approach. ”

Athletic officials say Seminole Booster members who qualify for parking will receive their print-at-home passes via email the week of the season-opener against Georgia Tech.

General admission (scramble) parking will be issued to all donors who qualify ($330 and above) to only the games for which they select tickets.

Parking (reserved and general admission) for Golden, Platinum and Legacy Chiefs will be issued for all home games.

Only Boosters and season ticket holders are allowed into games this year. There are no single game tickets for sale.
