Dear Boston College Football Fans:

 

The Boston College Gridiron Club welcomes all fans of Boston College Football, non alumni, alumni, season ticket holders and casual fans.  "Tailgate With Us" and socialize with other Boston College Football fans before every football home game in a "fan friendly, family friendly", environment. Join us at our private tailgate in the Margot Connell Recreation Center at FanFest (in conjunction with the Boston College Alumni Association). Enjoy inexpensive wine and beer, and tailgate favorites: hot dogs, burgers, fresh garden salads, fresh fruit salads, New England clam chowder, fresh deli sandwiches and wraps. Join the Boston College Gridiron Club and like so many members have, leave the grocery shopping and cooking on game day to us!

 

Sunny day? Enjoy our air conditioned environment. Rainy or cold day? No problem, you will be dry and warm in our private dining area. Watch ESPN College Game Day and all the early games on our wide screen television. Mom and Dad, sit back and relax as the kids play all the inflatable games.

Join us on the road in the ACC and beyond, at our famous Boston College Gridiron Club Friday Afternoon Football Bash. Join us as we visit some legendary college football watering holes like: The Esso Club - Clemson, The Stadium Center Club - FSU, Putter's Steakhouse - Wake Forest and Top of the Hill - UNC. Enjoy the camaraderie of Boston College's best fans along with ice cold beverages and the best in local cuisine. The Boston College Gridiron Club Friday Afternoon Football Bash is the perfect way to kickoff your road game weekend party.

 

The Boston College Gridiron Club and its over 1000 Members have raised over  $800,000. Our most recent pledge was to the new BARRY GALLUP MEDICAL CENTER AND THE UPGRADE TO THE FOOTBALL LOCKER ROOM.  In addition we have made pledges to the BC Football Indoor Practice Facility. All funds raised from our Five Memberships levels were directed to fully fund our $100,000 pledge on the new facility. Our Membership levels are available in detail on bcfootballgridiron.com. Our Membership levels range from a $25 Young Adult Membership to our elite $500 Screaming Eagle Platinum Membership, and levels in between.
