Home-gating: At Home OR Your Home Away From Home
The waves of excitement, the roar of the crowd, the aroma of the food; there is nothing quite like game day at Lincoln Financial Field. But if you can’t make it to the stadium, take a cue from a party planner’s book by bringing your tailgating indoors. Along with friends and family, tasty food and of course, a massive flat screen TV to catch all of the sacks and blitzes, home-gating can easily become a part of your Sunday tradition.
Skipping the hustle and bustle of South Philly doesn’t mean skipping the fun and festivities of football. It’s all about getting into the spirit of “Fly, Eagles Fly” without having to leave the comforts of a cushy couch and play-by-play commentary. When it comes to leaving the stadium parking lot behind, Eagles fans have two choices: be your own hostess with the mostess, or during an away game, let the event professionals at Lincoln Financial Field craft an experience you will never forget.
As the saying goes, home is where the Eagles are (right?). Surrounded by your nearest and dearest, the home-gating experience brings a modern twist to tailgating. Aside from traditional items like the Koozie, which keeps our beer icy cold, step it up with a Snack Helmet, which creatively houses our must-have chips and dip – or stay classy, Philly, by showing off your finest charcuterie on an elegant Cheese Board Set. Set the scene for you and your guests with a banner flag callout to the Birds and vinyl placemats for the table. Eagles Fans never go stale, neither should your chips or wine; take a lead from our coach with a “Chip” Clip (get it?), or Wine Stopper, unfortunately, no, it doesn’t stop the Cowboys’ fans from whining!
Though there is no place like home, there are game days when you desire that relaxed feeling sans the responsibilities of the planning, hosting, and cleaning up. The event spaces at Lincoln Financial Field, such as Luxury suites and club lounges, are an ideal setting for a home away from home-gating scenario.
When your Birds are away, come to the nest and host a viewing party. Be it for an after office bonding session with your co-workers, a Guys night out (did we mention you can have the cheerleaders stop in during your event?) or simply a change of pace from your weekly post, a viewing party at Lincoln Financial Field is an experience no one will soon forget. With a focus on tending to your personal needs, your designated event manager is at your service to make the stadium feel like home without the hassles of entertaining at home – with a mix of high top tables, cozy couches, plush chairs and the ultimate selection in Big Screen TV’s. Not to mention the fantastic gourmet fare such as Vetri Pizza and Paesano’s Sandwiches, and of course the traditional favorites, such as Dietz and Watson Hot Dogs and Federal Style Soft Pretzels. The options are vast, the opportunities endless and it’s all personalized to your liking!
