Game Day Tents, the tailgating provider for the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, has merged with Tailgate Guys to become part of its growing national footprint that provide game day tailgate services.  Under the name Tailgate Guys, the University of Alabama team will apply the same principles and attention to detail that has made Tailgate Guys a national success and one of top 5,000 fastest growing privately held companies in the United States over the past three years, according to Inc. magazine. 

“We are excited to work along-side our friends at Game Day Tents to provide the University of Alabama with top level of service that improves the game day experience for fans and the university while having a good time delivering our services!” says Parker Duffey, CEO and President of Tailgate Guys.  “The Game Day Tents name will continue to exist in places for several more months as we transition them to become part of Tailgate Guys.”

“The Tailgate Guys brand will be a subtle shift for our existing customers in Tuscaloosa,” said David Harper, Game Day Tents partner and now Vice President of Tailgate Guys Tuscaloosa and Birmingham operations. “We will be the same people operating game day services at University of Alabama but now with a more robust inventory, level of service and expanded offerings by becoming part of Tailgate Guys. We are excited to join the team and be part of this fast growing organization!”
