Tailgating is a great way to socialize, have fun, and support your favorite team! Kansas City fans literally live and breathe the “Go big or go home” motto, as the city is known for its massive tailgates in Kauffman Stadium. Here’s everything you need to know about Kansas City sports tailgating from us here at Lee’s Summit Honda! Get out and support the Royals this upcoming season!
Before you pack up and head out, take a few minutes to review the rules to avoid any trouble.
First, guests will have to enter the game or leave the area following the end of the first inning. Don’t save spaces or buy additional spaces. Avoid blocking the roadway and try to stick to the space around your vehicle.
The Kansas City Royals are known for attracting massive crowds and that always leads to an active tailgating area. People even arrive hours early to set up.
“People stake out the parking lot five hours in advance so they can set up their whole spread,” said Kerry Funk. “Everybody that has a legit tailgate has some sort of grill going on, and I think that is pretty synonymous with Kansas City.”
Load up your grill, grab a cold one, and head out to support the Royals this season!
