Fans can tailgate at Brewers games starting next week

MILWAUKEE — Tailgating will return to American Family Field when the Brewers take on the Chicago Cubs next week.

Fans will be able to tailgate with people attending the game in the same pod starting April 12. The team announced the decision Wednesday.

“Tailgating is a Wisconsin tradition; it is how we begin our day at the ballpark,” said Brewers President – Business Operations Rick Schlesinger. “We have been in regular contact with the City of Milwaukee Health Department and the opening series was operationally sound. With safety protocols and our fans’ diligence, we are now able to bring back tailgating for those within a seating pod.”

According to a news release, tailgating will be allowed at a single vehicle for people sitting in the same pod within the stadium. Fans will be required to stay within the immediate vicinity of their vehicle.

More information about the tailgating guidelines is available online.
