Where to tailgate
The Eagle AlleyThe Eagle Alley is where you’ll find some of the best tailgates on game days. However, you need to be an Athletic Department donor and a season ticket holder to tailgate here.
Lincoln Street lotIf you’re a season ticket holder, but not a donor, then the Lincoln Street lot is a great place to reserve a season tailgating pass. You’ll meet lots of fellow season ticket holders here giving you an excellent opportunity to tailgate with the same people throughout the season.
The PitThose of you who only want to tailgate for one game will want to do so in The Pit. North Carolina Central offers season passes for The Pit as well, so get your spot early before the lot fills up.
