Ralphs, "The Official Grocer of Football," is inviting its customers to enjoy the Ultimate Tailgate Experience at select UCLA games at the Rose Bowl and USC games at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The huge tailgating events start three hours before kickoff in the Rose Bowl and Coliseum parking lots. Bruin and Trojan fans will have plenty of time to get their fill of food and drinks before game time. There will also be complimentary alcoholic beverages for pigskin fans 21 and over (some restrictions apply), along with several big screen TVs to make sure no one misses any of other collegiate games going on.

Bruin and Trojan fans will receive a free ticket to Ralphs Ultimate Tailgate Experience when they shop at their neighborhood Ralphs supermarket and purchase $25 in participating products in the same transaction with their Ralphs rewards Cards. Tailgate event tickets will be printed on their receipt, which is their event admission ticket. The receipt covers admission to the Ralphs tailgating event only. Game tickets must be purchased separately. Children under 16 years of age will be admitted only with qualifying Adult entry.

Football fans can also attend the Ralphs Ultimate Tailgate Experience without a purchase for a $25 donation to the home university's charity of choice payable at the Ralphs tailgate event entrance (cash only).

"If you want the ultimate in football tailgating, then the Ralphs Ultimate Tailgate Experience is perfect for you," says Kendra Doyel, senior manager of community affairs for Ralphs. "We've got food, drinks and football fun for the whole family. The Ultimate Tailgate Experience is just one more way that Ralphs customers are getting the products they want, plus a little."
