Temple Athletics announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Blockparty, a fan-focused hospitality and entertainment company, to provide an enhanced tailgating experience for alumni and other fans at home football games.
"We are always looking for ways to enhance our already vibrant game-day experience and we believe our partnership with Blockparty accomplishes that goal," said Temple University
Director of Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft
. "The addition of this premium area will provide our fans a first-class way to tailgate at Temple Football games and continue to make Lincoln Financial Field one of the best places to watch college football."
This season, Blockparty will design a premium club area at Lincoln Financial Field, which will include two suites custom-branded for Temple Athletics. The addition of this area will seamlessly tie into other pre-game festivities such as concerts and food truck vendors to foster a greater sense of community for fans attending the games.
"Our premium tailgating solutions allow us to build game day communities that replicate that on-campus atmosphere," said Blockparty co-founder and COO Steven Gilman, "and we could not be more excited to partner with the Temple University Athletic Department
as we share in same vision of a growing tailgating community for the Owls."
Full-scale packages include premium lounge furniture, high-end coolers with ice, high-top tables, tables for food and drink, and access to the bellhop service with ability to add on a fan and a media package with HD satellite service and integrated sound bar, for the ultimate game day experience.
