TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Florida State University officials announced Friday that tailgating would not be allowed for FSU’s football home opener against Georgia Tech on September 12.

“Given what is going on throughout the country and the number of COVID cases in Leon County, we have determined that for the safety of all involved we will not allow tailgating for the Georgia Tech game,” said David Coburn, the director of Athletics at FSU. “We will continue to monitor the situation, and if changes are warranted, we will adjust the policy accordingly.”

Patrons cannot raise tents, put up tables or use outdoor grills and cooktops in the parking lots for the Georgia Tech game.

Patrons are asked to please proceed to the stadium gates, which open two hours prior to kickoff, once they exit their vehicle.

Parking lots will now open 2 ½ hours prior to the 3:30 p.m. kickoff, and all vehicles must exit within 2 ½ hours after the end of the game.
