Members of the alumni association get priority registration and discounted tickets, but Buccaneer Buffet is open to all friends and fans of East Carolina. Non-members may begin registering on August 3.
Enjoy a variety of food from local restaurants, beverages, live music and entertainment, door prizes, and more. Our tailgates often get visits from the ECU Cheerleaders and Pee Dee the Pirate! Located at the ECU Soccer Stadium, Buccaneer Buffet begins three hours prior to kick-off and runs for two hours.
For members, tickets are $12 for adults age 13 and up, and $6 for ages 8-12. For non-members, tickets are $30 for adults age 13 and up, and $15 for ages 8-12. Children 7 and under are free. The price includes a buffet meal with dessert, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and entertainment. The price does not include a ticket to the football game, which must be purchased separately.
Buccaneer Buffet tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Some tailgates do sell out quickly, so plan to register well in advance. Tickets are only sold at the door if space is available.
Tickets purchased prior to August 26 will be mailed. After that, tickets can be picked up at the Alumni Center or at Buccaneer Buffet.
