Interfraternity Council cancels planned tailgate

first_imgThe Interfraternity Council canceled their scheduled tailgates in Exposition Park on Thursday prior to the football game against the University of California, Berkeley.Tailgating for the Thursday night game is prohibited on campus and The Row.“There was a miscommunication between the university and IFC as to what the tailgating situation would be like,” said IFC President Tanner Sandoval. “We made an agreement after last semester to work with [the university] to find a space that works for us. We were dealing with where we were going to put 4,000 people before the game.”The university could not be reached for comment. Administrators have previously said that they hoped creating space for tailgates near the Coliseum would make it easier for students to comply with on-campus tailgating restrictions for Thursday night football games.According to Sandoval, the area in Exposition Park that was initially reserved for the fraternities’ tailgate did not allow alcohol to be served. Sandoval said IFC found a new space two weeks ago in the park but needed to hire security in order for alcohol to be served. The security company that is contracted by the city of Los Angeles to work in the park, however, was already fully booked for the tailgate sponsored by the Undergraduate Student Government and another event.Sandoval said the event still could have been held but alcohol would not have been able to be served.“With the cost of the space, it wouldn’t have been worth it,” Sandoval said.Sandoval said individual fraternities would be responsible for finding their own tailgate locations, though he could not guarantee that they would comply with restrictions to tailgating on The Row.“Whether or not they all comply, especially considering the circumstance with Expo Park, I can’t say,” he said.last_img read more
