Here Are 4 of the Best Ways to Experience Davidson College Football!
This year’s homecoming festivities will typically take place in mid-September. Homecoming is a great opportunity to interact with fellow alumni and also enjoy Homecoming with other Davidson fans. There will also be a hospitality event at the tailgate area where you will be able to meet Alumni and grab Davidson gear. Stay tuned for the specific game that will take place during the celebration! Don’t forget that there is also a game on Senior Day, November 17, when we play Butler!
There’s no better way to get pumped up for the big game than with a tailgate right on campus. Each home game, Wildcat fans set up right next to the stadium on the Davidson campus. Tailgating is a fun way to enjoy friends and family and eat some delicious tailgating food like wings or burgers. Probably your best idea is to grab some food from the great restaurants on Davidson’s Main Street. Because tailgating takes place right next to the stadium, fans will be able to watch the Davidson team warm up!
Because not everyone can get to each game, Davidson has made it easy to catch their sports games online. You can easily watch from the comfort of your home or one of our guest rooms with the Davidson All-Access page. Just click on the game, hit watch, and you’ll see the action happening live.

If you want to show your Wildcat Pride from head to toe, head over to the Davidson College Store on Main Street.
