It’s Homecoming weekend and the Cornell Athletics Homecoming Tailgate 2017 starts at 12:00 noon on Kite Hill Crescent Lot – I encourage you to attend! Register now!. Here is our Schedule of Events; please check regularly for updates to this schedule. For more details on university Homecoming weekend events and activities, click here.

The CFA hosted another terrific pregame tailgate event at the Bucknell game and a good time was had by all! Special thanks to Amanda Backus, Jennifer Sposito, and their crew for their hard efforts in making these tailgate parties such special events! (view Bucknell Tailgate photos here) Here is our Schedule of Events; please check regularly for updates to this schedule. There will be no CFA tailgate during Homecoming weekend. Our final CFA pre-game event will be on November 11, 2017 (12noon) prior to the Columbia game – we look forward to seeing you there!!

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL CFA MEMBERS: CFA members can go to the ticket office in Bartels Hall on game day to obtain 2 season tickets. The ticket office will have a complete and up-to-date roster of all dues paying and lifetime CFA members.

We would like to thank all of our members for their generous support and encourage everyone to renew your membership today. Welcome all the new members that have recently joined the CFA as our ranks have recently grown to 616 paid members and we have surpassed our initial goal of 600 dues paying members and are well on our way to 700 paid memberships and 235 lifetime memberships by the end of the year. I personally want to give a special shout out to the parents of current players that have joined our ranks as a significant portion of our recent growth has been from the parents of our players. With increased membership, we are positioned to improve the tailgates and provide the meals for the players after the home games. As always, CFA members are welcome at all CFA sponsored tailgates. The combining of the parents’ tent and the CFA tent allows for a larger venue and promotes the familial atmosphere as originally planned when the CFA was formed back in the early 90’s.

As importantly, we need your help in encouraging others to join the CFA; Our current membership stands at 616 members.
