||Welcome to Auburn
There is nothing quite like a fall Saturday in Auburn. From Tiger Walk to Toomer's Corner, our fans and our traditions make Auburn's gameday experience the best in college football.
As good as Auburn's gameday experience is, we are always striving to make it better. The Auburn Athletics Department has been hard at work during the offseason to give fans what they told us they wanted -- more tailgating, more parking and more memories to share.
||New for 2013
It has been very clear by the feedback of the Auburn Family that additional parking that is free and close to the stadium ranks high on the wish list. The plan for 2013 creates more than 2,000 new free parking and tailgating spots around campus. Here are some of the highlights:
South Donahue Corridor
The temporary stakes that line both sides of Donahue during the fall will be moved or eliminated. The stakes on the western side of the street will be removed to allow fans to park on the curb. The stakes on the eastern side of the street will remain but will be pushed farther away from the curb to protect the pedestrian path while also creating ample space for additional parking.
A new lot previously not available to fans will also be opened on the north end of the South Donahue hayfields, adjacent to Lem Morrison Drive. Additional parking will also be opened up on Lem Morrison as a construction laydown area is converted to parking and tailgating space. (Available at 4 p.m. on Friday).

West Samford Avenue
A small area of green space on West Samford Avenue near the intersection of Duncan Drive will also be opened up for free parking and tailgating. Permanent pipe and chain barriers along that portion of West Samford will be removed. (Available at 4 p.m. on Friday).
Thanks to the cooperation of the Division of Student Affairs, 70 new tailgating spots will also be offered on the perimeter of the Intramural Fields on Biggio Drive. The reserved spots will be offered free of charge. Beginning in August, fans will be able to reserve those spots online.
Additional free parking will be available at the Facilities Division off of West Samford Avenue. Fans can "quick park" their vehicles there, and shuttle service will be available to and from the stadium.
Removal of Bollards
Portions of the permanent pipe and chain barriers along Wire Road in front of the Carol Draughon Village (CDV) complex will be removed prior to football season, opening up the area for free parking and tailgating. Bollards will also be removed on Biggio Drive near the Intramural Fields. Vehicles will be allowed to pull up on the grass and fans can tailgate there free of charge. (Available at 4 p.m. Friday).
New Gameday App
Auburn Athletics will launch a brand new mobile application aimed specifically at making the gameday experience better for the fans. Find all the vital information like parking, tailgating and stadium maps, while also joining in the social conversation with a second screen experience. You will also be able to enjoy live scoring and statistics without having to leave the app.
Ticket Scanners & Seat Selection
Auburn will utilize ticket scanners this year in Jordan-Hare Stadium giving fans the ability to print tickets at home, transfer tickets to other Auburn fans and cut down on fraudulent tickets getting into the stadium. Fans also will be able to select their seats when purchasing single-game tickets online for 2013.
New Local Radio Affiliate & Tiger Talk on Location
The Auburn IMG Sports Network has partnered with WINGS 94.3 to become the new local radio affiliate, giving coverage to the entire Lee County listening area. The weekly Tiger Talk radio show will return on location for 2013 with Coach Gus Malzahn and Voice of the Auburn Tigers Rod Bramblett at Bob's Victory Grille in Auburn.
Thanks to the cooperation of Dean James P. Shepard and the School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences, a new free tailgating area will be opened up behind the Forestry & Wildlife building at the corner of South Donahue and Lem Morrison Drive. The School of Forestry has partially cleared a wooded area there for a longleaf pine tree reforestation project. "Weagle Woods" will offer tailgaters a prime location among the pine trees just a short walk from Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Additional Tailgate Dropoff Locations
Last season, three locations were designated as dropoff areas for fans' to unload their tailgating supplies. This year, three additional locations are being added to the pregame routes. The six locations available for vehicles to dropoff are:
Transportation Tech Center (Magnolia Avenue)
Goodwin Music Hall (Samford Avenue)
Mell Street Station (Mell Street)
Thach Avenue (Mell Street)
Intramural Fields (Biggio Drive)
Facilities Division (Samford Avenue)
