PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) While you may not be able to do your tailgating outside of Heinz Field this college football season, but you can bring it to your own home.
Pitt Athletics and Tailgate Guys have partnered to create the “Take Pitt to the House: The Exclusive Home Tailgate Experience” where Panther fans can purchase a package that includes a subscription to the ACC Network and other tailgate essentials.
The package also includes a Pitt-branded tent, portable tailgate table, cooler, and ring toss game.
“As ESPN and the ACC continue to work at expanding the ACC Network footprint, we wanted to offer a home tailgate experience that includes the ACCN via our partnership with Tailgate Guys,” Deputy Athletic Director Christian Spears said. “‘Take Pitt to the House’ will allow our fans to set up a great tailgate experience at their residence, receive and retain some unique Pitt-branded items and then watch the game on the ACCN with Tailgate Guys TVs and Dish Network Services. Now that we know fans are not permitted through at least September, and our first ACC conference game only being available on the ACCN, we hope this will be a well-received option for our fans.
For an extra price, additional items include 120 quart coolers, tables with linens, cocktail tables, tailgate chairs, and sanitation kit that has paper towels, hand sanitizers, wipes, and koozies.
The base price of the package starts at $950, and it is expected to sell out.
“I would encourage people to sign up for this soon,” Spears said. “We have a limited supply of the Pitt-branded items and we believe this will sell out.”
The Take Pitt to the House package will become available Sept. 19, prior to the Panthers kicking off against Syracuse.
