Clarksville, TN – A new pregame entertainment experience will join the growing entertainment options surrounding the lead up to the Austin Peay State University football (APSU) games in 2019. The athletics department has announced the development of Stache Street to launch prior to the Governors Thursday, August 29th, 2019 contest against North Carolina Central.
The new Stache Street will take over Marion Street in front of Fortera Stadium and the Foy Fitness Center, which will be closed prior to each home game during the 2019 season.
Governors fans will be able to walk Stache Street and enjoy an array of food truck options and inflatable games.
“Stache Street is going to be another exciting area for our fans to enjoy before every game,” said APSU Director of Athletics Gerald Harrison.
“Last year, I saw first-hand how much our fans enjoyed Tailgate Alley. Our team went to the drawing board looking for another way to build on that enthusiasm and with the cooperation of the City of Clarksville I believe we have found it,” Harrison stated.
Prior to the 7:00pm, August 29th kickoff against North Carolina Central, Austin Peay State University athletics will work with the Austin Peay Police to close parking along Marion Street beginning at 3:00pm with Stache Street to open at 4:00pm and will remain open until 30 minutes before kickoff.
Food truck options at Stache Street include Kona Ice of Greater Clarksville, PJ’s NY City Dogs, Hibachi4Hire, Legends Smokehouse BBQ and Dos Margaritas Taco Truck.
Stache Street joins the wildly popular Tailgate Alley which has enjoyed sold out participation the past three seasons. Tailgate Alley is again available for the 2019 season with single-game tickets for the season now available at $20.00 per spot by visiting LetsGoPeay.com/BuyTickets.
