What’s the best dish you’ve ever brought to a tailgate? Spicy wings? An old family recipe for potato salad? If you’re not much of a chef, the answer to this question might just be, “Myself!” To kick off the start of this year’s tailgating season – and to celebrate the teams that will be playing in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games – we are combining two of our favorite things to create the ultimate tailgating dish: Football and Chicken.

There are Chick-fil-A fans. And then there are Chick-fil-A fans. In the first group we’ve got the folks who love the Original Chicken Sandwich. You bring nugget trays to parties and you’re just a little bit sad on Sundays because you have to wait 24 hours for a Chicken Biscuit. You’re earning treats left and right on the Chick-fil-A One app and the team members at your local restaurant know your name.
Like an extra point after a touchdown, football and tasty snacks go hand in hand. With this year’s big game taking place in Chick-fil-A’s home town of Atlanta, why not kick your party off right by combining two fan favorites: nachos and Chick-fil-A Nuggets! This delicious appetizer is sure to be the MVP of your snack table this year – and making them is easy.
Chick-fil-A is now an official associate partner of the 119th Army- Navy Game presented by USAA. One of the most storied and iconic rivalries in all of sports will take place on Saturday, December 8 at 3:00 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field with the broadcast on CBS. The Chick-fil-A partnership includes a pop-up restaurant in Philadelphia that will be part of an experiential watch party for military service men and women. Chick-fil-A will host active duty military, veterans and their families at the private event.
The 2018 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in September marked several firsts: the first Kickoff Game held at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta; the game’s first SEC vs. Pac-12 match-up with the Auburn Tigers narrowly defeating the Washington Huskies; and lastly, the announcement that Chick-fil-A will become the first presenting sponsor of the Wuerffel Trophy.
