What do hot dogs, policy wonks, and the Michigan Marching Band have in common?

All will be out in full force at the Ford School's first-ever Homecoming Game & Tailgate Party on Saturday, October 8, 2005.   We have reserved a special section for Ford School alumni at the football game (Wolverines vs. Minnesota) and the enormously popular UM Alumni Association's 'M-Go-Blue Tailgate Party' before the game.

The M-Go-Blue Tailgate features great food, spirited entertainment and lots of fun for Wolverines of all ages. Best of all, the Michigan Marching Band will lead us to the Big House prior to kick-off.


Football Tickets ($54 /each) are limited to 4 per person and require that you purchase at least the same number of Tailgate Tickets.

Tailgate Tickets are $25/each for adults, $15/each for children 5-12 years, and free for children ages 4 and younger. Tailgate Tickets may be purchased separately - if you already have football tickets or just want to attend the Tailgate party, you are more than welcome to do so.
