Newberry College announces premium tailgating and parking places available for football games
Thursday, September 10, 2015

NEWBERRY - In an effort to enhance the gameday environment and improve the fan experience for those attending football games, Newberry College has created premium tailgating and parking spots around Setzler Field in addition to the traditional Newberry College Athletic Club Parking Lots. 

Parking spots are in the lots on Wolves Way (formerly Cemetery Drive) next to the stadium and in the Walker Hall parking lot. The spots offer a tremendous tailgating opportunity and a close proximity to the stadium. No charge parking will still be available at Oakland Mill and the Smith Road Complex where a shuttle will run every 15 minutes. No charge parking is also available at the Alumni Music Center, Shop Around the Corner, Science and Math Building and Lee Atwater Field.

The additional revenue raised from the selling of parking spots will help offset the rising cost of college athletics and directly fund the scholarships that assist in educating student-athletes.

Tailgating spots in the stadium lot are $250 for the season or $50 per game and “Stadium Wall” parking spots are $125 or $25 per game. The season long tailgating spots are for one year and non-renewable. Availability for these spots are offered after parking is assigned to all members of the Newberry College Athletic Club. For renewable parking spots, members of the Newberry College Athletic Club at the Bronze Level or higher receive parking on an annual basis.
