The Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic announced on Thursday a new partnership with Tailgate Guys to create the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic Tailgate Club. The event will provide fans with a unique tailgating experience as the Classic prepares to host the College Football Playoff Semifinal on New Year’s Eve at AT&T Stadium. 

Fans that buy into The Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic Tailgate Club will enjoy a first-class turnkey tailgate experience within the beautiful surroundings of Richard Greene Linear Park located just steps away from AT&T Stadium.

“The park provides the perfect backdrop for fans to enjoy the best tailgating experience,” said Michael Konradi, Chief Marketing Officer of the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. “Tailgate Guys does a phenomenal job, and based on their success with other partners, the Tailgate Club will be the place to be outside the stadium before and after the big game.”

Tailgate Guys, founded in 2009, can be found operating on campuses and in special event games around the southeast. Current partners include: Auburn University, Texas A&M University, The University of Florida, The University of Texas, Georgia Tech and the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.

As part of the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic Tailgate Club, Tailgate Guys will be providing packages that will offer fans the opportunity to host small groups or large corporate gatherings. Tailgate Guys will set up all tailgating equipment in advance, which includes tents, heaters, tables, chairs and even satellite television depending on the package reserved. Each reservation will also include a minimum of one parking pass in an adjacent parking lot. Guests will have the option to reserve coolers filled with ice, paper products and utensils, as well as several choices for full-service catering.

"We are thrilled to team up with The Goodyear Cotton Bowl and be part of this distinguished program,” said Parker Duffey, President of Tailgate Guys. “The Tailgate Club affords us the opportunity to build out a community of over 70 tents inside the park, and create the very best tailgating atmosphere where friends and family can come together to ring in the New Year.”

On Monday, October 19th a priority reservation period will open to Cotton Bowl Classic season ticket holders. The priority reservation period will close on November 2nd and any remaining packages will be made available to the public.

Reservations are expected to fill quickly as Tailgate Guys has been fully booked with stand-by lists for several years at other locations. Additional information can be found by visiting or by calling 979.775.1700.
