DALLAS, Texas — Blockparty, a fan-focused hospitality and entertainment company, announced today it has entered into an agreement with Mizzou Athletics to become the department's exclusive tailgating partner this football season, offering new options for fans who want an enhanced game day experience in Columbia.
"We appreciate each and every one of our fans," said University of Missouri Director of Athletics Jim Sterk, "and this opportunity allows us to show our gratitude by offering new experiences to the already incredible game day experience at Mizzou."
Beginning this season, Blockparty will offer a variety of tailgate packages to students, alumni, student organizations and companies looking to enjoy the tailgating experience without the hassle. Fans will have the option of either purchasing a tent package for their group or an individual ticket into the Tailgate Club, a communal tailgating space where fans can enjoy the same premium tailgate experiences as private tailgate setups but in a shared environment with BYOB and catering options.
"Our goal is to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible for fans to come out to the game," said Blockparty co-founder and CEO Adam Ward. "From hotels and restaurants to vacations, people increasingly want premium options, and there's no reason tailgating has to be an exception."
Tailgate tent packages at Missouri will begin at $450 for a 10' x 10' high-peak tailgate tent setup at a premium reserved tailgate location near the stadium. Full-scale packages include premium lounge furniture, high-end coolers with ice, high-top tables, tables for food and drink, and access to the bellhop service with ability to add on a fan and a media package with HD satellite service and integrated sound bar, for the ultimate game day experience.
Blockparty will also be introducing a tailgate text service this fall to allow fans to access their on-site concierge service.
