For those wondering why we aren’t able to hold an outdoor event like we did in 2019, GSU is not able to provide space for a tailgate due to heavy construction around the stadium, which is severely limiting parking lot availability. WPSA also explored the possibility of holding a tailgate elsewhere in Atlanta, however this was not feasible due to both cost and time prohibitive permitting requirements from the City of Atlanta, which were further exacerbated by COVID-19 limitations.
Note: If you were planning to hold an independent tailgate this year, we strongly recommend that you contact GSU to see if your event is feasible given the space limitations that exist around the stadium.
GSU is still developing plans for what parking lots will be available on game day. The aforementioned lack of parking lot availability is putting total lot capacity at well under 50%, and GSU has not yet determined which lots and spaces will be available. WPSA is working with GSU to reserve a number of spaces to sell to our membership, and we will share this information as soon as we have it.
Visitor tickets for the game have not yet been released for sale by GSU. As soon as we get information from GSU, we will provide instructions on the best way to purchase so that you’re seated in friendly territory.
Thanks for your patience this year. We are looking forward to seeing you at Wood’s Chapel and kicking off the season with an Army win!
