Tailgating Guidelines

Pete FioRito Stadium at McKinzie Field has served as the home of Eureka College football for much of the last nine decades and provides a game-day atmosphere second to none in small college football. We want you to have a great experience when you come to campus to see the Red Devils and their opponents and we ask that you follow our game-day guidelines.
