UTEP Tailgating Rules for 2010 Season

The University of Texas at El Paso will kick off the 2010 football season on Saturday, Sept. 4. The Miner’s season opener against the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions will begin at 7:05 p.m. at Sun Bowl Stadium.

This Saturday’s game is the first of six opportunities in 2010 to carry on the Miner tailgating tradition. UTEP’s updated tailgate policies, including parking rules, shuttle services and ways to keep the campus clean can be reviewed at www.tailgating.utep.edu

On-campus tailgating can begin as early as 6 p.m. Friday at the RV lot on Schuster Avenue. Cars can park in the perimeter lots at 8 a.m. Saturday and the inner-campus lots after noon.

While tailgating is a wonderful Texas tradition, UTEP officials ask fans to remember they are guests on campus and should act accordingly such as throwing away their trash and dumping their used charcoal into clearly marked charcoal bins located throughout campus.

UTEP officials encourage fans to be careful and follow the instructions of traffic officers as they leave the game.

UTEP Police Chief Cliff Walsh wants the fans to enjoy their experience, but he stressed the need to follow University policies such as no tailgating in the parking garage and to not bring glass containers on campus.

Game day parking will be available in the UTEP parking garage for $10 per game or $50 for the six-game home season. Parking passes may be purchased at the UTEP Ticket Center (915-747-5234).

Parking Regulations:

Illegally parked vehicles may be towed at owner’s expense.
Only one vehicle per space and only one space per vehicle will be permitted.
Reserving parking spaces are prohibited; spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Parking spaces may not be used as tailgate setup areas.
No tailgating in fire lanes.
RV's, Campers, and trailers will NOT be allowed to have another vehicle parked in the same area.
RV Parking (Lot P-4) will open at 6 p.m. the day before each game, and will close on Sunday at 10 a.m. RV's will be allowed to stay overnight, but are asked to close down all post-game activities one hour after the game has concluded.
A parking fee of $20 per game or $100 for the season will be assessed for each RV and/or camper/trailer type vehicle.

I Agree !!

My Family of 25 plus about 20 friends have STOP going to ANY miner football games.

We go to NMSU instead and sometimes to Arizona, where they have FAN FREINDLY TAILGATING!

They allow us to have FUN, and only punish the fools that get out of hand.
To HELL with miner sports as far as we are concerned! they suck anyway!

We will NOT be supporting miner anything until they let us have fun...WITHOUT ALL THE NAZI RULES!
