It wouldn’t be a proper Homecoming weekend without a tailgate and football game! Join us in the OMA&D tent in “The Zone,” located behind the Husky Stadium East End bleachers (between the Waterfront Activities Center and Husky Softball Field). UW alumni and friends of diversity can enjoy catering and pre-game activities. Besides eating, drinking, and mingling, “The Zone” features performances by the Husky Band and Cheer Squad, as well as the team’s pre-game walk into the stadium. Fans can watch the live pre-game radio broadcast from KJR-AM 950 and an interactive Kid Zone with fun football activities is also available. Tailgate tent admission will include food, and beverages will be available for purchase. After the tailgate, we will walk into the game together and cheer on the Huskies! Our discounted group tickets will seat everyone together. Tickets will sell fast, so be sure to reserve your seat as soon as possible!
