(STILLWATER, Oklahoma / June 26, 2018) – Oklahoma State will partner with event management specialists Tailgate Guys to provide premium tailgate packages for Cowboy fans outside of Boone Pickens Stadium beginning with the 2018 football season. POSSE members will have the first chance to purchase packages beginning today with Cowboy VIPs and then moving through subsequent donor levels, while sales to the public begin July 16.

Tailgate Guys will manage specific locations on the OSU campus and provide services that include bellhops, catering, high peak tents, tables with linens, chairs, media TV packages and more. Packages can accommodate a small group of five guests up to large-scale event for more than 1,000 guests.

Cowboy fans will receive the previously mentioned amenities that are available from Tailgate Guys across the country, along with specific offerings unique to the OSU community.

"Oklahoma State's game day is full of tradition and excitement," Tailgate Guys President and CEO Parker Duffey said. "At Tailgate Guys, we come to serve and to add to the fan experience with our industry-leading service and convenience. With our expansive reach in the Big 12 Conference, Cowboy fans will have a turn-key, hassle-free tailgate at home and on the road."

Tailgate packages for the 2018 season are located in grassy areas just north of Boone Pickens Stadium along Hall of Fame Avenue, as well as grassy areas on the north side of OSU’s new Spears School of Business building and northeast of the Classroom Building. All Tailgate Guys guests receive a site-specific map that indicates their tailgate location for either a single game or full season, depending on their package.

“Over the last decade the pregame atmosphere around Boone Pickens Stadium has evolved into one of the best in the Big 12, and we are extremely excited to partner with Tailgate Guys as we continue to give Cowboy football fans options to enhance their game day experience,” OSU Senior Associate Athletic Director Jesse Martin said. “When selecting a premium tailgate service provider, a shared passion for great customer service and providing a first-class tailgate experience for fans were two key reasons we chose Tailgate Guys."

Founded in 2009, Tailgate Guys offers superior tailgating service to guests by working with athletic entities across the country, with the ability to host more than a million tailgate guests per year.
