Football Events

Come back home to campus and celebrate the Florida Atlantic Football season in style at an alumni tailgate prior to each home football game this fall. All tailgates this season are open to alumni and friends, and you do not need to be an Alumni Association member to attend.  Active members can enjoy unlimited complimentary beverages for all tailgates, and single-game drink passes are available.

Enjoy refreshing beverages, fun food vendors, music, and air conditioning at the Marleen and Harold Forkas Alumni Center located across from FAU Stadium!

We ask that all guests register for tailgates in advance to assist us in better preparing our community partners and vendors attending events.
