UCF ChargeOn Tailgates

UCF fans of all ages are invited to join us on the road as we take on the Navy Midshipman this fall. Before kickoff, we are hosting tailgate festivities that will feature a catered buffet, complimentary beverages, spirit swag and special appearances from UCF fan favorites! Admission is $45 and $25 for children under 12.


We are committed to the well-being of every Knight, so we have taken precautions to provide a safe environment for our attendees to celebrate at these outdoor events. We will continue to monitor and adapt to CDC-advised health guidelines as necessary.
