The University of South Carolina is pleased to announce a new football game day program that will launch with the new Farmer’s Market area. Tailgate Guys will offer a full range of turnkey tailgating services to guests and will be located along the center grass path between Quads 3 and 4 in the heart of Gamecock pregame activities.

Founded in 2009, Tailgate Guys have been providing clients with a first-class, turnkey tailgate experience for four years. The organization has recently partnered with the Chick-fil-A Bowl to become the official tailgate service provider for both the Chick-fil-A Kickoff and Bowl games in Atlanta.

“With the completion of the Farmer’s Market project, South Carolina fans will have the best football pre-game location in the country. Tailgate Guys is excited to increase the gameday pageantry and offer Gamecock fans a chance to make their experience more memorable,” said President of Tailgate guys Parker Duffey.

All tailgating equipment, which can include tents, tables, chairs and even full media packages, will be set up in advance. Guests will also have the option to reserve coolers filled with ice, paper products and utensils, as well as several choices for full-service catering.

Reservations are expected to fill quickly as Tailgate Guys has been fully booked with stand-by lists for several years at Auburn. Tailgate packages go on sale to the public on Monday, Aug. 6, 2012. Additional information can be found by visiting or by calling 803.667.1799.
