It wouldn’t be a proper Homecoming weekend without a pre-game tailgate. Join our tailgate at the south practice field, where UW alumni can enjoy catering and pre-game activities. After the tailgate we'll go to the game and cheer on the team. Special group-rate tickets are available and we will all sit together in the west end zone section of the stadium. These seats will save you $20 off the regular ticket price. You can choose to register for both the tailgate and the game, or just one. Go Huskies!
