UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES THE CREWTM COLLEGE TAILGATE TOUR
Rival Fans Play The Crew and Win Prizes at College Campuses Across the Country
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — October 13, 2014 — Today, Ubisoft® announced The CrewTM College Tailgate Tour, a six-week tour of key college football matchups across the United States to celebrate the upcoming launch of the highly anticipated open world driving game.
Ubisoft and The Crew are giving college football fans a way to show their team spirit. Two trucks outfitted with gaming stations will simultaneously tour the country, allowing fans from each school to play The Crew and go head to head with the rival school before the big game on Saturday.
“College rivalry games have intensity unmatched by any other sporting event,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “What better way for fans to show their pride and play a role in their team’s rivalry than to take on opposing fans in The Crew and race to prove who is best?”
The Crew College Tailgate Tour will be on each campus during the week leading up to the game and will set up on game day near the stadium. Fans can also win prizes, including video games, consoles, T-shirts, game tickets and more.
The Crew College Tailgate Tour schedule includes:
October 18: UCLA (Los Angeles, CA) at Cal (Berkeley, CA) October 25: Texas Tech (Lubbock, TX) at TCU (Fort Worth, TX) November 1: Florida (Gainesville, FL) vs. Georgia (Athens, GA)
Game day activities at neutral ground in Jacksonville, FL November 8: Alabama (Tuscaloosa, AL) at LSU (Baton Rouge, LA) November 15: Florida State (Tallahassee, FL) at Miami (Coral Gables, FL) November 22: USC (Los Angeles, CA) vs. UCLA (Los Angeles, CA)
The Crew will be available on December 2 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.

The Crew Tailgate Tour has been traveling across the country at some of the biggest tailgates, pitting fans of opposing teams against each other including Texas Tech/TCU, Florida/Georgia, Alabama/LSU, FSU/Miami, and is wrapping up its tour at the Rose Bowl this Saturday.
