Spectator and Photography Policies

Below are general policies for all spectators attending events at McDaniel:


McDaniel College joins the Centennial Conference and NCAA in promoting good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches and spectators. We request your cooperation by supporting the participants and officials in a positive manner. Profanity, racial or sexist comments, or other intimidating actions directed at officials, student-athletes, coaches or team representatives will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the site of competition. Also, consumption or possession of alcoholic beverages and tobacco products is prohibited.


Photography at Kenneth R. Gill Stadium is limited to credentialed members of the media and the official photographer of McDaniel College or an opponent. Photographers must comply with all NCAA requirements for photography based on the sport. Any photographer not adhering to these standards will forfeit his/her right. All requests for a sideline pass must be made to the Director of Athletics Communications at least 48 hours in advance, when possible. There is no restriction on photographs outside of the fenced area at Gill Stadium.

For all other venues, photography is restricted as per NCAA requirements. The bench areas are off-limits at all McDaniel venues with exception granted to the official photographer of McDaniel College athletics. Other restrictions and limitations may apply during postseason play.


Admission to all McDaniel home games is free. There is a $10 charge for anyone wishing to park in the "bowl" for football. The gate for football opens three hours prior to kickoff. Admission may also be charged for postseason events in accordance with Centennial Conference and NCAA policies.

Visiting Team Tailgates

For all home football games, the area behind the south endzone (around the scoreboard) is specifically reserved for visiting parents and fans to tailgate. For full details about tailgating at McDaniel football games, please visit the football tailgaiting page.

For all other sports, McDaniel does not permit postgame tailgates to take place in any of our indoor spaces. Teams and families are welcome to tailgate outside, near the team bus or in/near either large parking lot on each side of the soccer complex.
