Tiger Tailgate Success Story: Southern Glazers


The Zimmer Communications Tiger Tailgate has earned a solid reputation as THE biggest tailgate at Mizzou. It's a guaranteed party before every home game. Just ask the 1,200 visitors who come to each tailgate. 


This presents a unique opportunity for local businesses. In order to get in on the fun, hopeful attendees are required to pick up a ticket from a sponsoring business location. This could mean instant foot traffic to your business! 

In this post, we'll hear from one of our Tiger Tailgate sponsors to see if this event sponsorship opportunity truly paid off for their business.
