In addition to the base package, Franklin Field Tailgate Zone patrons have the ability to utilize personal tailgate equipment and to take advantage of the convenience of storing tailgate equipment with us throughout the season.

All fan owned items to be stored and setup by SevenSouth should be camping/portable style equipment. Due to limited storage capacity on campus, we strongly encourage you to coordinate your rental and storage needs with us during the pre-season.
Fans are encouraged to be creative and work with us to build a tailgate experience that suits your exact needs!

  • Up to two (2) tables (6ft. max. length)

  • One (1) cooler (60qt. max; Ice sold separately

  • Generator (60 db max. portable)

SevenSouth is not liable for any stolen or damaged personal items. Fans are not limited to the items above, and you may call or email anytime for pricing and information regarding items not listed.


SevenSouth Tailgating will have representatives on site every game day to assist you as needed. We want your tailgating experience to be as hassle free as possible. Therefore, we will have representatives and carts available upon request. You may contact us on game day by visiting our SevenSouth welcome tent, or by calling our game day phone line (to be updated at a later date).


Each person(s) who secures a tailgating package on Franklin Field will be assigned a group identification (ID) number. The group ID number will coordinate directly with your location on Franklin Field. Franklin Field has four sides that will be identified as North, South, East, or West. Your group ID will include a letter indicating which side of the field you are on, as well as a number (e.g. W14). If your ID is W14, you are tent number 14 on the West side of the field. The Indoor Practice Facility is North, Stadium is West, Folsom Rd. is East, and Colorado Ave. is South. The group ID numbers will be assigned by the University when you reserve your tailgate package, and that will be the same number we use as your customer identification number. Anytime you call, send payments, send requests, etc., you will use this number to identify yourself.


1) Once you have booked and paid for your base package through the university, all other additional fees for add-ons and package customizations will be paid through SevenSouth.
2) You may bring any and all items you wish to and from the games yourselves, as long as they fall within the University guidelines.
3) We will not transport or store any gasoline containers, nor propane tanks containing larger than a 1 pound capacity.
4) All personal items being added on to your reserved package and stored throughout the season should be approved and reserved by SevenSouth.
5) SevenSouth reps will be available to assist customers, as needed, beginning 6 hours before kickoff (or 8am).
6) Representatives from SevenSouth will be wearing security green vests with the SevenSouth Tailgating logo on them. If they do not have on the vest, they are not employees of SevenSouth.
7) Waste bins will be provided by CU. Fans should take every step necessary to keep CU beautiful by placing waste in its appropriate receptacle.
8) Personal items being stored and setup by SevenSouth should be agreed upon and reserved prior to the first game. Any items not agreed upon that are left after a game are not the responsibility of SevenSouth.
9) The manager over the Boulder division of SevenSouth is Jeff Thornton. He will be on site at all times and happy to assist you.
10) For reservations, add-ons, inquiries, and all other non-game day needs, you will contact SevenSouth directly at (662) 321-1682 or kyle@sevensouthtm.com. For all needs on the day of the game, you will contact manager Jeff Thornton directly (number to be released at a later date).
