NOVA parking /tailgating

Post by hendog » Sat Jun 29, 2019 8:27 am

I know it is way to early but want to start asking about tailgating and parking at nova this year. It always seam's to be a big problem for UD fans hopefully they have opened up some lots for tailgating, or maybe ud admin can get nova to open up a spot

Don't hold your breath on Nova doing anything to benefit Blue Hen fans who want a tailgating option. The UD Alumni site, however, does seem to indicate that one of their away game tailgates for UD fans will be at Nova. No details on cost, menu, etc. appear yet, but may be something to look into once that info becomes available since other options will surely be limited.

I think the admin should contact nova and ask for a parking lot for tailgating they can even charge for it do something no tailgating is stupid

How many UD fans even go to nova anymore? I think we have a deluded sense of the size of crowd that follows the Hens anymore. We have no weight to make nova do anything.

Yup...#'s down @ away games. Villanova being a constant puzzle as to where to set up and actually enjoy tailgating at a college football game.

While not as many as formerly traveled to Nova, UD still gets a decent turnout there.

That’s correct - I saw the info today. $22 for the tailgate only and $42 for the tailgate and game ticket.
