Lincoln Financial Field In Philadelphia Is A Top Stadium For Tailgating

According to a new study from Betway, The Linc has ranked among the top arenas for tailgating. Lincoln Financial Field tailgating is simply iconic. I mean, The Linc is a stadium, but still.

The study ranks the greatest NFL tailgating parties according to fans. Philadelphia Eagles fans really know how to tailgate according to this study.

It’s another one of those great American traditions. There’s no better way to get hyped up for a game than hanging with your fellow fans in the parking lot outside the venue. When you walk through a tailgate outside The Linc, the smell of cooking sausage and peppers, the sea of green jerseys, and the absolute tomfoolery the fans are engaging in, all wrap up to make a great day.

Sometimes the tailgate is better than the game itself. Sometimes people tailgate WITHOUT having tickets to the game! We are a dedicated fanbase. We love our team to the max and we show it with epic parking lot parties. And don’t even get me started on all the craziness Philly fans get up to in these lots.

Lincoln Financial Field tailgating is something we as Philadelphians are known for. Our ranking so high is definitely something to be proud of.

Here are the top tailgating parties in the NFL according to fans:

    Another team we’ve smoked in many games that mattered a lot (see: 2017-2018 NFL season). But they’re above us in terms of tailgating. God knows why, it’s way too cold up there. Oh well, They received a positive sentiment score of 17.9%. And in terms of posts, they had 92,629 about tailgating.

    At long last, we’ve arrived at the best city for tailgating. Not according to this list/study. According to my opinion and also reality and complete non-bias (wink wink). We got a positive sentiment score of 17.6% which is only slightly below the Vikings. AND. GET THIS. There were 145,504 posts about tailgating at The Linc. We beat both The Vikings and The Giants in that category. SO yeah. We rock. Tailgate on, Philly.
