The Texas Rangers have entered into a partnership with Tailgate Guys, an Opelika, Ala.-based company, that sponsors hospitality and tailgating packages to expand the experience of Game Day.

Tailgate Guys’s offers a number of packages for fans to increase their experience at stadiums. Their packages offer tents, tables, chairs, televisions and catering services.

“This is a big move for Tailgate Guys, just as it is for the Rangers,” said CEO and President Parker Duffey. “The leadership team with the Rangers has a vision that is unique within Major League baseball and that vision happens to dovetail directly into our long-term strategies. It’s a perfect fit.”

Since their founding in 2009, Tailgate Guys have developed relationships with 16 colleges from the east coast to Texas, representing the Big 12, Southeast Conference, Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten and Conference USA.

They also provide services for the Chick-Fil-A College Football Kickoff Classic, the Goodyear Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium, and most recently, the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.

This is their first venture into Major League Baseball.

“We are excited to announce this partnership that will truly deliver a new, world-class experience to all Texas Rangers fans” said Mark Neifeld, Vice President of Events for the Rangers. “The elite level of hospitality, comfort and service that Tailgate Guys provides will be a wonderful new addition to our Texas Rangers home games in 2018.”

Tailgating packages for the 2018 Rangers season are already available. For more information, call 972-RANGERS or at texasrangers.com/tailgating.
