Revelry to Offer Turnkey Tailgating at 'The Oaks'
BATON ROUGE – Revelry Sports & Entertainment, a newly formed hospitality group specializing in premium, turnkey offerings at major sporting events, has inked a partnership with LSU Sports Properties to serve as the Official Tailgate Partner of LSU Athletics.
Revelry Sports and Entertainment will offer tailgate service in The Oaks at Patrick F. Taylor on the south side of the LSU campus near Tiger Stadium. The Oaks is presented by Rouses Markets.
Revelry Sports & Entertainment is led by the principals of Global Golf Management, a Chicago-based company with offices in New Orleans, that specializes in PGA Tour and LPGA Tour tournament production, custom hospitality programming, and special event logistics.
While maintaining the same footprint on the grounds of Patrick F. Taylor, Revelry plans to build upon last season’s program at The Oaks through enhanced game day offerings including bellhop attendants, concierge services, and a variety of entertainment options for children and adults.
Fans will have the option of selecting a 10′ x 10′ or 10′ x 20′ tented space that is furnished with premium outdoor furniture, coolers and more. Each turnkey set up will be ready upon arrival and ensure hassle free fun on game day.
“We are extremely energized by the partnership with LSU Athletics and we look forward to delivering a level of customer service to LSU fans that is in line with what our professional event clientele is accustomed to,” said Matt Truax, a managing partner of Revelry Sports who is based in New Orleans and heads up the LSU program. “LSU Football is a powerhouse and as a native of New Orleans, I understand the importance of ensuring that the on-site experience measures up to the team itself. We want our product to be the most dynamic tailgate in the country, and our customers need to experience the thrill of game day without having to do any of the work.”
“This is an ideal extension of our event management business as it will allow us to provide premium hosting services to a wide array of individuals, while also pushing our forte of operational excellence into the collegiate football space,” said Jeff Raedle, president of Global Golf Management.
LSU Sports Properties, which is operated by OUTFRONT Sports, Inc., is the exclusive marketing and multi-media rights holder of LSU Athletics.
“Partnering with Revelry Sports and Entertainment will bring the ultimate tailgating experience to The Oaks at Patrick F. Taylor,” said Lance Burgos, General Manager of LSU Sports Properties. “We are pleased to be part of the Revelry Sports and Entertainment’s launch into the college space and the unparalleled customer service and hospitality our fans will receive.”
