Bronco fans cheering at Football Game

The new Alumni and Friends Center is a home to build upon long-stranding traditions and is the ideal location for alumni, friends, and fans to gather.

Priority is given to lifetime members only.  Parking is currently available to annual members, however this does not guarantee annual members the opportunity to reserve the same spot for next year.  Anyone can join and become a lifetime member of the Alumni Association.  We hope to see you tailgating in your best Bronco gear with all of our alumni and friends!

Rules and Regulations

The University appreciates fan support and encourages ticket-holders to arrive early and enjoy food, fun, and the company of their friends at pre-game tailgate parties. However, those coming to the area for the game are expected to obey all state and local laws; treat fellow fans, including those supporting the opposing team, with civility as well as respect the property of others. In the interest of safety, sportsmanship, and consistency, we will not overlook behavior on game days that would not be tolerated at other times. The laws are the same on football game days as any other day of the year.

At its discretion, the University may terminate tailgate par­ties or take other appropriate action against individuals, groups, or organizations whose conduct is irresponsible, unreasonable or inconsistent with Boise State University, City of Boise and/or State of Idaho poli­cies and regulations, ordinances or laws.

For the safety and enjoyment of all fans, please keep the following guidelines in mind when tailgating at Boise State University football games:
