The Tailgate will feature appearances by NFL Hall of Famers, performances by cheerleaders, music acts and interactive and historical NFL elements. Make sure you get there in plenty of time to experience this American Football tradition. 

This year the Tailgate Party will be bigger and better than ever, with the new East and Inner Tailgates as well as the West car park to bring you the ultimate gameday experience across 3 zones of extraordinary fan fun!
