During each home football game, fans are encouraged to combine their tailgate creativity with a commitment to properly maintain their game-day location. Once tailgating begins, volunteers visit designated parking lots to hand out bags for trash and recycling while taking note of the locations that have gone the extra mile to ensure their location is clean and green. Tailgate sites that exhibit the best implementation of these concepts will be nominated for the Spotless Tailgate of the Game by volunteers in their lot. A weekly winner will be selected from the list of nominees.

Each week’s winner will receive a Mountaineers tailgate prize pack and be entered in the Tailgate of the Year competition, in which the winner will receive a new grill from G&B Energy and Appalachian Energy. A photo of the week’s winning group will also be displayed on the App stadium video board during the game.

Each week’s winner will be asked to provide the name of their tailgate, contact information and exact tailgating location to be eligible for weekly and year-long prizes.
