I mean, game day should be a fun experience. The only anxiety you should feel is when you watch the action on the field. So, eliminate the tailgate or party-hosting anxiety and get what you need from Academy.

At any of the three Baton Rouge locations, pick up products like yard games, canopies, grills, coolers, tables, chairs, licensed fan gear and more. You’ll walk out feeling like the most prepared and confident football party host. 

But, if you don’t have time to browse around in-store, get online. Order what you need at and pick it up in stores. 

After picking up those grilling and drinking essentials, you can’t forget about sporting your team’s colors. The whole family can find a variety of spirited fan wear at Academy. That includes t-shirts, jerseys, hats, polos and drinkware. They have black, gold and purple coming out of every corner.

Now, if you plan to wander from the tailgate into the stadium, you’re going to need a clear bag or purse. Academy has a strong assortment of clear bags and purses that comply with stadium rules and regulations. So, with one of these, you won’t be that person who has to throw away his or her bag at the gate. 

And while you get pretty great prices on products already, take advantage of a little extra discount. Save even more through Academy Sports + Outdoors’ new credit card. With the Academy Sports + Outdoors credit card, customers get $15 off their first purchase of $15 or more on the same day they are approved. Plus, they save 5% on every purchase.

Finally, stop by any of the three Baton Rouge area locations to make it happen.
