Q: Will the buses sell out?
A: Yes. We are opening up 100 seats on two charter buses. Once we reach our 100 seat limit, ticket sales will be closed. We will then open up a waitlist for a potential third bus (50 additional seats), but this addition is not guaranteed.
Q: What do we need in order to get on the bus when we show up?
A: Please have the ticket purchaser provide ID and a printed receipt. Anyone who did not place the order themselves should arrive with the ticket purchaser. If this is not possible, please specify the plus-one names in the merchant notes when placing your order, or send us an email with this information.
Q: Will there be an organized tailgate in Baton Rouge?
A: No, there will not be any organized tailgate by the New Orleans Auburn Club as part of this package. However, there have been discussions about members of the national Auburn Alumni Club setting up a tailgate where all Auburn fans will be welcome. We will post details here if and when they become available.
Q: Will there be a Tiger Walk in Baton Rouge? If so, when and where?
A: Yes there will. The time has not yet been announced, but they are typically two hours before kickoff.
Q: Can we bring coolers on the bus?
A: As long as you can fit it in your seat with you, it is allowed.
Q: Can we leave things on the bus during the game?
A: Yes. The drivers will open up the cargo area about an hour before kickoff so passengers can drop off coolers, etc. as well.
Q: What if I’m late getting to the bus?
A: You will be left. The bus LEAVES Central City BBQ (1201 S Rampart St,) 4 ½ hours before kickoff (Time TBD) and LEAVES Lot 406 in Baton Rouge exactly one hour after the game ends. We suggest arriving at the pickup location 30 minutes earlier so that we can get you checked in on time.
Q: I can’t make the trip to Baton Rouge. Will Auburn fans still be meeting at the normal meeting spot?
A: Yes. There will be a watch party in New Orleans, most likely at Central City BBQ.
Q: Will koozies and T-shirts be available for sale on the bus or at Central City BBQ?
