The Gilroy Tailgate Zone – located between the Foy Center and the entrance to the soccer complex – replaces the former Tailgate Alley area that allowed for general public reservations.

All general public tailgating will be allowed on a first-come, first-served basis. Signs will be prevalent early in the season to ensure that all fans know where to go.
