Valpo Athletics Set for Festive Atmosphere on Homecoming Saturday

The Valparaiso University Department of Athletics has announced plans for the gameday experience at Saturday’s homecoming football game against San Diego, which will kick off at noon at Brown Field.

The Community Tailgate Lot will be open again for this week’s game. The lot opens three hours before kickoff and costs $10 per car for the general public or $5 per car for faculty and staff. Those who purchase entrance into the Community Tailgate Lot will have access to food trucks and children’s games. The lot will be located on the former hospital grounds, which are northwest of Brown Field. Vehicles will enter the lot from Monroe Street and exit the lot on LaPorte Avenue. 

In addition to food trucks, the space will include two bounce houses at this week’s game. Outside food, drinks and alcoholic beverages (ages 21 and over) will be permitted in the Community Tailgate Lot. Pets are not allowed. 

General admission bleacher seating is available for $10 per ticket again this season. Children 10 and under are free with no ticket required. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the gate.
