Blockparty To Bring Full-Service Tailgating To Death Valley Through Partnership With LSU Athletics

Baton Rouge, LA — Offering new full-service tailgating for LSU fans, Blockparty, a fan-focused hospitality company, and LSU Sports Properties, which is operated by Outfront Media Sports, Inc., the exclusive marketing and multi-media rights holder for LSU Athletics, have agreed to enter into a multi-year partnership as the department’s exclusive tailgating partner beginning in the 2018 football season.

This is all about enhancing the game-day experience for our fans

“This is all about enhancing the game-day experience for our fans,” said Robert Munson, LSU Senior Associate Athletics Director. “This new option is open to everyone and will bring incredible convenience and personalized service for our fans who choose to sign up. We believe this will be a great addition to the best tailgating tradition in the country.”

Blockparty will offer premium tailgate packages on the grounds of the Patrick F. Taylor Building located on South Stadium Drive just down the street from Tiger Stadium, a brand-new location utilizing previously unoccupied tailgate locations.

Blockparty tailgate offerings will include an assortment of premium options as well as services to enhance the game day experience. Tailgaters will have access to bellhop attendants, tailgate attendants, and an on-demand concierge via Blockparty’s FanTextTM, a SMS service platform that provides fans the opportunity to text for instant assistance. Additionally, there will be live music, a kids zone and tailgate games for tailgaters.

“We considered many companies but Blockparty’s technology-enabled service and innovative product offerings made Blockparty the obvious choice for a partnership,” said LSU Sports Properties General Manager Ward Wyatt.

“We are extremely excited to add an elite collegiate program in LSU to our growing list of partners,” said Blockparty CEO Adam Ward. “LSU fans are the most passionate fans in the country and we are excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve them.”

Blockparty tailgate packages will be available for purchase beginning May 3 at www.blockpartypresents.com/LSU, by email at LSU@blockpartypresents.com, or by phone at (972) 768-1627.
