7 Tailgating Essentials For This Season’s Gopher Football Gamedays

7 Tailgating Essentials For This Season’s Gopher Football Gamedays


With the Gopher Football Season just a couple short weeks upon us, we want to help you prepare for your tailgate parties. These seven essentials for Gopher Gamedays will help you get setup for a winning season. Be sure to also read our post on the Gophers’ schedule and our predictions for the season.

1. Tickets

Gophers Tickets

With what should be an exciting season coming up, you will definitely want to be in attendance for the games. You can get tickets from our partners at Seatgeek. They will show you deals from across the web, and they even rate them based on how good of a deal it is. This is by far the best way and cheapest way to buy tickets (yes, even better than scalping).

2. Gopher Gear

Minnesota Gophers Gear

Be prepared for whatever the weather throws your way. Amazon has gopher t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, hats and more. Here are a few items we hand-picked from amazon that will have you looking great for this upcoming season:

Gophers Logo T-shirt ($16)

Gophers Women’s Vintage T-shirt ($22)

Gophers Hooded Sweatshirt ($40)

Gophers Premium Onefit Hat ($18)

3. Chair

Don’t be caught without a place to sit at the tailgate. These folding chairs from Amazon are Gophers colors and extremely comfortable.

4. Grill

The essential part of every tailgate is plenty of good food. With one of these high-end grills, you will be serving up burgers and hot dogs that the whole party enjoys.

5. Koozie

A koozie will come in handy to keep your drink cold. Why not buy a Gophers one for extra style points? We found koozies made of a few different materials because everyone has their own preference.


6. Canopy or Tent

With the ever-changing weather of Minnesota, a canopy or tent is must own for your tailgate. This will be a great centerpiece to the party where you can keep the food and drinks.

7. Cooler

Keep your drinks cold with one of these premium coolers by Yeti. Of course, towards the end of the season, the snow works just fine as well.
