BRIDGEWATER, Va. -
Bridgewater College is pleased to once again offer the Mapp Field tailgating area, a spot where tailgaters can gather for a celebratory environment in advance of home football games. Multiple options are available for football tailgating and Eagle Club membership that are designed to make your game-day experience even better!

To become part of the action, you have numerous exciting options to consider. You can elect to join the Eagle Club—the only way to get both season passes and your top choice of a numbered, reserved parking spot in Mapp Field. Leadership levels of Eagle Club will be available online beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, July 1, 2019, with other levels opening later in July.

If joining Eagle Club isn't right for you, there are still options for you to reserve a specific, numbered parking spot in the Mapp Field tailgating area for individual games. You can reserve a space online beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, July 29, 2019, for a nominal fee, enabling you to choose the spot on Mapp Field you want to make your own AND allowing you to select multiple spaces for additional vehicles. Tailgating in Mapp Field does not require a game ticket. Those can be purchased on game day in the ticket booth located at the entrance to Jopson Stadium.

If you choose to walk in to the Mapp Field tailgating area, there is no charge or ticket requirement. You can purchase football tickets on game day in the ticket booth located at the entrance to Jopson Stadium.

Details and reservation opening dates for the various options are outlined below. Please note that we anticipate parking spaces to fill up very quickly, especially for Homecoming and Family Weekend, so be ready to make your reservations!

You will receive an email from the College on July 1 when the reservation form is active. If you have questions prior to reservations opening on July 1, please contact the Department of Athletics at 540-828-5476 or EagleClub@bridgewater.edu. We look forward to celebrating a year of athletic victories with you!
