University of Georgia officials say tailgaters will still be welcome when they return to the school’s north campus in the fall for football season. But there will now be some restrictions on what they can...and cannot bring.

Last football season, tailgating fans left tons of trash on the grounds after UGA’s game with South Carolina.

UGA President Michael Adams.

"We've done everything we can to be fan-friendly. We want the fans here, we want them to have a great time, we want them to come, we want them to tailgate. We just don't want them to destroy the campus in the process."

Restrictions now include a ban against tents, kegs, generators, grills and tables larger than 4 feet long on north campus. Tailgating also won’t be allowed until 4 hours before kickoff.

Across the campus, UGA officials are banning things like pull-behind trailers, grills, ATV’s and parking on sidewalks.
