Tailgate Guys Partners with K-State Athletics for Football Tailgating


MANHATTAN, Kansas - Fans traveling to Manhattan for K-State Football games this Fall will have access to a convenient and time-saving new service, thanks to a new partnership between K-State Athletics and Tailgate Guys, the nation's leader in premium tailgate and event services. 

The partnership will allow K-State fans and alumni to save time through a variety of turnkey reserved tailgate package options that include tents, chairs, tables, coolers, and other tailgating essentials. Tailgate Guys will operate both the 'Cat Town' area as well as a newly designated grass space just outside the northeast corner of the stadium.

"K-State is a strong brand in the Big 12 and college athletics and we couldn't be more thrilled to add them to the Tailgate Guys family!"  said Parker Duffey, Tailgate Guys President and CEO. "We look forward to serving K-State fans this Fall and working with Gene Taylor and his staff to further enhance the game day experience around Bill Snyder Family Stadium."

K-State is now the seventh Big 12 Conference school partnership for Tailgate Guys.  

Fans traveling to Bill Snyder Family Stadium for games this Fall will have access to a full range of premium pregame tailgate package options and reserved locations in ​both designated locations. The turnkey tailgate packages that will be available throughout the 2020 home football schedule have the capacity to service groups as small as five guests to large scale events of 1,000-plus.  Each package will include turnkey setup & breakdown, game day bellhop services, high peak tents, DISH media packages and local catering options with options for additional customization. 

"Tailgate Guys has the reputation of providing a service of the highest quality that we feel will be very beneficial to our fans," Athletics Director Gene Taylor said. "Now, fans – from small groups to large gatherings – can have their entire tailgate setup, from tables and chairs to televisions and food and beverages, prepared and disassembled by Tailgate Guys. Essentially, our fans can show up, have fun at their tailgate area close to the stadium and then head in to support the Wildcats."

Tailgate Guys is committed to easing the experience of setup, maintenance and breakdown to ensure fans can spend their time and energy enjoying good football and even better company all season long.  Kansas State tailgate packages will be available to the public starting ​Monday, February 24.
