MAC Pre-Game Tailgates Shift to Kidd Field for 2015 UTEP Football Season

Events Will Take Place Before Every Home Football Game And Begin Three Hours Prior To Kickoff

EL PASO, Texas – UTEP Athletics and the Miner Athletic Club are excited to announce that all Miner Athletic Club pre-game tailgate festivities will be held at the Kidd Field track facility for the 2015 football season. The events will take place before every home football game and begin three hours prior to kickoff.

Last year’s festivities were held on the Glory Field practice facility, but were relocated due to field turf renovations.

“We are excited about our Miner Athletic Club tailgates moving to Kidd Field,” said Bob Stull, Director of Athletics.  “It’s the perfect location for fans and families to gather for a great time before enjoying every Miner football game.”

This year’s festivities are more convenient and fan friendly as:

  • The new location is now closer to the Sun Bowl Stadium with easy access to the stands
  • The UTEP band and cheer team will host a pre-game pep rally before all home games
  • Fans can enjoy a fenced-in grass area inside the Kidd Field track facility

Kidd Field tailgate tents are now available for parties of 50 persons and above ($425+) for each home football game. Each tent rental includes tables, chairs and the option to reserve your own caterer for each event.

UTEP Athletics will also host its own tailgate tent for fans of all ages. Season passes are available for all five (5) home games with the option to purchase single games. Each of these tailgate events include a meal, complimentary soft drinks/water, an exclusive UTEP giveaway as well as televisions with all the live college game-day action.

For more information on any of these options or to RSVP, contact the Miner Athletic Club at (915) 747-8759 or via email

The Miner Athletic Club (MAC) serves as the fund-raising arm of the UTEP Department of Athletics. The MAC’s mission is to annually raise funds to offset the departmental cost of scholarships and sport programs supporting UTEP student-athletes. Funds are raised by the Miner Athletic Club through annual membership, major and planned gifts, the donor portions of season ticket sales and special events.
