VT/GT Tailgate Details

The Atlanta Chapter of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association and the Atlanta Hokie Club cordially invite you to join fellow Hokie fans at the November 11th VT vs GT football game for the Official Atlanta Hokies Tailgate Party!

We have partnered with Tailgate Guys this year to put together a first class event on the lawn at Tech Green, just a short stroll from Bobby Dodd Stadium. That’s right, this year’s event will be an outdoor tented event with tables, chairs, TVs, food and drink – fully furnished and serviced by Tailgate Guys. You won’t want to miss out on this party!


Your ticket gets you entrance into the Official Atlanta Hokies Tailgate event, and includes:

  • Food* and drinks (BBQ, two sides, water and soda)
  • Adult beverages (beer and wine)
  • First class tailgating environment provided by Tailgate Guys
  • Special Hokie guests!

*Current menu is for BBQ (chicken and pork) and two sides. Game time has not yet been announced, so a noon kickoff may shift the menu to more brunch-oriented options. Either way we’ll have you covered on the food front!


Kickoff for the game will be announced by the league at a date in the near future. Regardless of game time the tailgate will begin 3 hours prior to kickoff. You are also welcome to leave items under the tent during the game and return to the tent following the game to wait out traffic and continue the festivities. Please note that food will only be provided by the chapter before the game. Attendees are welcome to bring additional snacks and drinks for before or after the game. Items can be left at the tent during the game.


The Tailgate Event is located near the stadium at Tech Green on Georgia Tech’s campus.

Tailgate Guys will have us setup with a huge 60 ft x 30 ft tent with tables, chairs, TVs, theater seating, standing areas, food and beverage. We’re located in spot A on the Tech Green layout below, which is a prime tailgate location:


Tickets are available for both the tailgate and the game and can be purchased separately or in a discounted bundle option. Purchases can be made on the Purchase Tailgate Tickets tab, but please finishing reading below to have all information before purchasing.

When bundling your game ticket and tailgate ticket together, you will be given the option to upgrade your seats. We have a limited number of “premium” seats available. Please make sure you book your group tickets together when including game tickets at which time we can provide you with available seating options based on the number of game tickets you purchased.

  • Children 6 -12 years old can attend the tailgate at a discounted price (see Purchase Tailgate Tickets tab for pricing info).
  • Children under 5 are welcome to attend the tailgate for free.


We have tickets in the lower 100 level and the 200 levels on both sides of the field. There are 10-30 tickets in each section, so there will be Hokies in groups across the stadium. Spreading out the seats enabled us to get better seating options at a better value to our group (securing a block of 150 tickets together would’ve meant upper level endzone seating).

We have the tickets in hand and can mail them to you or give them to you in person at one of our upcoming game watching events at Hudson Grille (we’re there every week!). You’ll receive further instructions after purchasing your tickets at which time we can provide you with available seating options based on the number of game tickets you purchased.


At the 2015 Atlanta Hokies Tailgate we had special guests from the Virginia Tech family in attendance including Athletics Director Whit Babcock, HokieBird, VT Cheerleaders, and more. We are expecting similar for this event, but those details will not be confirmed until game week (contingent on kickoff time). Either way we’ll have leadership staff on hand from VT Athletics, The Hokie Club and The VT Alumni Association, along with hundreds of Hokie fans, to make this the place to be for game day here in Atlanta.

Be sure to follow us on social media for updates as we get closer to the game!

Tailgate Guys partners with universities across the country to offer guests the ideal game day tailgating experience. In addition to Georgia Tech, they are official partners of numerous other schools including Auburn, Penn State, Oklahoma, Alabama, Texas, Florida, and starting this year our very own Virginia Tech Hokies. If you’ve been to a game in Blacksburg this year, they set up along Washington Street across from Cassell Coliseum between Pritchard and AJ. This is a top notch event company that puts all of its energy and efforts into each and every
game day detail. First class all the way!
