If you can’t make the game day experience more unique…

… your next most profitable option is making it more like staying home.

GameDay Traditions, an innovative leader in the premium hospitality sector, helps their partners monetize under-utilized real estate surrounding stadiums and arenas and deliver world-class fan experiences for the most discerning premium customers. Through the company’s commitment and passion for the ultimate game day experience, it delivers partners new revenue streams and their fans a lifetime of memories.

Nice.  You can’t put a price tag on memories like this:  “Hey, honey, remember when we used to spend a shitload of money at the games so we’d still have a kitchen and bathroom when we went?  Good times, right?”

    Nowadays nothing conveys commitment and passion for college football quite like delivering new revenue streams for your corporate partners. I wish I were joking.

    “Standard tailgating food and drinks – hot dogs, hamburgers and soft drinks – are included with 1865 Club rentals, which last for 12 hours.”

    The extended half-day time period in this revolution in premium hospitality does a disservice to Wildcat fans who are used to paying for rooms only by the hour

    I wouldn’t hire them just because of all the wank words in the company description. Talk is cheap, and in the case of GameDay Traditions, it’s a busted Daytona stripper.

    Georgia Southern is doing the same http://www.gseagles.com/news/2015/6/11/FB_0611153605.aspx. I’m not sure how they’re being received. But let’s be honest, what do we say here over and over, year in and year out? It’s the basics. Clean restrooms, decent food, shorter lines, competent and polite people, etc. If folks can only get that outside the stadium at a premium price I’ve no doubt they’ll pay. When you start adding up how much it costs to buy tents, tables, chairs, coolers, plastic everything, portable grills, portable stereos, battery powered everything, cornhole games and such, not to mention the food and booze, you’re already spending a whole lot money before you ever make donations, buy tickets or set foot inside the stadium.

      There are some interesting things going on out there. Auburn, of all places, seems to have been on the leading edge of this trend. http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2015/08/17/In-Depth/Lead.aspx

          I have to agree with you on the shipping containers. But some of the other things going on out there are pretty sweet if you have the cash.

            Reminded me more of antebellum single wides, but they seem too narrow to be a trailer. I think you guys are right, shipping containers, antebellum shipping containers.

            And what a bargain. Only $5,000 per game.

        Was going to mention how long some of this has been going on at AU (how else do you pay lifetime salaries to 2 year coaches?!?!). I have friends that spend insane amounts of money on colllege football. For many of them, it’s the cost of doing business, but it shocks me nonetheless.

        the luxury box costs are the most amazing.

    Is this coming to UGA? Is that why you posted it? I can see this being popular for sure.

  10. UK of all football teams have quite a good premium tailgaiting “homes” too just off their stadium. Just like the IPF, UGA will likely lag behind, though this likely is not a priority considering this will be used only by “premium fans” what ever that means.
