Boston College will have new tailgating hours for all home football games, the athletic department announced Tuesday.
Fans will now be permitted to tailgate four hours prior to all weekend home football games. Additionally, for all games starting at 3 PM or earlier, fans will be permitted to tailgate for one hour following the conclusion of the game. Weekday games will remain three hours prior to kickoff, with no post game tailgating.
“We are always looking to improve and enhance our gameday environment for our loyal fans,” said Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond. “We heard how important it was from our fans, and specifically from our fan council, on the ability to extend tailgating hours prior to the game.”
BC also announced a new clear bag policy for games. Fans will be permitted to bring in a one-gallon sized clear plastic zip bag, a clear plastic bag that does not exceed 12”x12”x6” or a small clutch bag, wristlet or handheld wallet. This policy follows similar policies in the NFL and in the ACC.
