Husker football and tailgating...you almost can't have one without the other. Except, finding a space can be nearly impossible. Soon, a lot next to the Pinnacle Bank Arena will transform into a tailgating paradise, offering more than one thousand new spaces.
"There will be more fans coming to Memorial Stadium this season than ever before, 90,000."
That's where the Pinnacle Bank Arena is stepping in. In a few months, a dirt lot just north of the arena will give fans a new way to tailgate.
"With the popularity of tailgating increasing every year, it just makes sense to offer that. It's just one big lot, approximately 500,000 square feet and 1,300 spaces," Derek Andersen, Pinnacle Bank Arena Marketing Director said.
Here are the options you'll have:
For cars and trucks, along with $520, you'll have a spot for all 8 home games.
For recreational vehicles? it will cost a little more at $1200.
And here's a big bonus! Both packages come with food and drink for you and your guests.
"Also, we will offer live entertainment that begins two and a half hours before kickoff."
The gates will open at 7 a.m. on game days. And with memorial stadium a short walk away, officials say this is the place to be.
"We're looking forward to the football season. We think we'll add another dimension to the game day experience and to the area close to Memorial Stadium," Andersen said.
Andersen anticipates that these spots will fill up fast.
