2007 National Tailgating Index
After analyzing a host of criteria, including stadium parking lots, overall tailgating environment, tailgating-fan enthusiasm and the sales of tailgating accessories like in-car live TV systems and mobile programming, an alliance of tailgating experts has released for the first time the America's Best Football Tailgating Cities Index, a ranking of the “tailgating-friendliness” of the 31 U.S. cities with an NFL team plus NFL-hopeful Los Angeles.

The Index is a joint effort of KVH Industries, the leading manufacturer of live mobile TV systems for cars, RVs and boats; DIRECTV, Inc., the nation's largest digital multichannel television provider and a leading sports and mobile programmer; and a group of tailgating experts who have personally visited and ranked every NFL stadium, including Joe Cahn, a nationally recognized authority on tailgating, and the creators of the “Ultimate Sports Road Trip.”
