Game Day Parking and Tailgating
Game day tailgating is one of
VMI’s most memorable traditions. In good weather, tailgaters may park
on the Parade Ground and must use the Jordan’s Point entrance. Parking
opens for tailgating at 7:30 a.m. for a fee of $10. Parades by the Corps of
Cadets begin at 10:30 a.m. Following a full Corps march-on ceremony,
the game begins at 1:30 p.m. Shuttle service is available between the
Parade Ground and Foster Stadium.
For those not tailgating, free parking is available on city streets and in the
Randolph Street and Courthouse parking lots. Oversized vehicles, such
as buses and campers with trailers, are not allowed to park on the Parade
Ground but may park at Lowe’s.
Alcohol is not permitted at tailgate parties or outside receptions, nor is it
permitted in the football stadium. These prohibitions arise from state law
as well as VMI regulations.
Cadets with full class privileges may use the “Visit with Family” or the
“Dine by Invitation” permit to be excused from post after football games
and to miss Supper Roll Call formation. Rats must return by 10 p.m. on
Saturday. Upper class cadets must return by Taps (1 a.m.).

Men’s soccer
It will be a road-heavy schedule for the men’s soccer team
this fall, with just five games at home, four of which are Big South Conference
games. The Keydets will return last season’s top scorer, Blake McCauley, as well
as backstop Daniel Kitchen, both of whom will serve as captains as VMI looks to
reach the Big South Conference tournament in Greensboro, N.C.
After spending 11 seasons as an associate member of the Metro
Atlantic Athletic Conference, the program will make the transition this spring to
the Atlantic Sun Conference, joined by Jacksonville University, Mercer University,
High Point University, University of Richmond, and Furman University. Mike
DeBlasio, Rory Dillon, and Mickey Hofmeister are the captains for the 2013-14
