Mocs Offering Block Party Before Home Football Games
(GoMocs.com) The Mocs Block is a new pregame party located on the east side of Finley Stadium (Chestnut Street/Scoreboard Side) that features a UTC student tailgate and a pregame concert for all fans. A variety of bands are lined up to play before each home game, highlighted by rising country star Dylan Scott at the home-opener on Sept. 1.
The Mocs Block is a partnership with UTC Athletics, Finley Stadium, Chattanooga Brewery, Southside Social and EPB that starts with the closing of Chestnut Street on game days. The tailgate spots are occupied by various student groups, but the FREE pregame concerts and access to the local venues are open to all fans.
Those in attendance in their Mocs gear enjoy specials at both Chattanooga Brewery and Southside Social. EPB is providing complimentary wireless access for the entire area.
Festivities begin as early as groups want to set up for their tailgate on the day of the game, and the concerts begin two hours prior to kickoff. Student groups wanting to get on the waiting list for a spot in the tailgate can fill out the form here.
