If you want to tailgate like a pro, there are a few necessary essentials you can’t leave home without. For instance, you definitely need something to sit on – the last thing you want to do is stand up the entire time; a tent for shade is important because you may be out in the sun for hours; a game to play, such as cornhole, is necessary for entertainment; and coolers are crucial, that is if you want to keep your drinks icy cold.

Get on the right track, have fun, get pumped and pregame like a pro. These are some must-have tailgating gear and accessories.
