Champ Bailey & Danny Wuerffel Host Public Event Prior to UGA/UF Game
Star-studded tailgate and networking event is open to fans of both teams
Pro Football Hall of Famer and UGA Legend Champ Bailey is joining forces with UF Legend Danny Wuerffel to host the ultimate fan experience before the Georgia-Florida game. Held Friday, Nov. 1 (the night before the big game), "The Players Reception" is a VIP hospitality experience before sporting events that connect fans with legends of the game. The catered event includes unlimited food and drinks. In addition, there's a cigar bar, live entertainment and a silent auction to benefit the Bailey Brothers Foundation and Desire Street Ministries. Party Shack USA is providing the ultimate tailgate experience with on-site suites that include air conditioning and televisions.
The Players Reception is the only player-organized event that features high-level networking for alumni and fans to interact with prominent former players from both storied programs. The Players Reception provides an opportunity for former student-athletes to reunite with each other, as well as deepen their relationships with the school affinity networks. This event allows former players and alumni to explore ways to work together off the field.
Numerous legends from each school are scheduled to join Bailey and Wuerffel at the event. In addition, Rennie Curran and Jarvis Jones – two of the 2019 Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame Inductees – will be on hand signing autographs and taking photos. Bailey hosted The Players Reception in September, before the UGA / Notre Dame game earlier this season, where more than 60 alumni players attended the event, including fellow Pro Football Hall of Famers Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown and Emmitt Smith.
