Tailgating policy for Citadel football
The Citadel, Athletics Department and Brigadier Foundation, in conjunction with the City of Charleston Police Department, are asking for your cooperation during attendance at Citadel home football games. There are very few changes from past practices in those areas for tailgating and the consumption of alcohol in open containers. However, alcohol consumption and open containers in these designated areas must terminate no later than two hours after the end of the football game.
The areas between Congress Street and Fishburne Avenue, the Congress Street parking lot, the Altman Athletic Center parking lot, the areas around the Holliday Alumni Center and City Gym, and the MUSC or “C” lot are designated areas for tailgating. Hagood Avenue between Congress and Fishburne streets in front of the stadium will be closed to vehicle traffic and is a designated tailgate area.
The Charleston Police Department has mandated that open containers not be carried outside these designated areas. Those who do so will be in violation of the City and State open container laws and are subject to being ticketed by law enforcement officials.
Lockwood Boulevard, Brittlebank Park and areas south of that location are not open areas for alcohol consumption. Signage will be posted in all these areas reminding fans of their obligations to cooperate with The Citadel in ensuring a safe and enjoyable event.
As a reminder, “On campus alcohol consumption by members of the Corps of Cadets is prohibited by Citadel regulations. Providing alcohol to a minor is prohibited by State Law and could result in stiff civil penalties.”
