Event Report

We hosted our NDEW event outside of UT's Neyland Stadium before a football game. We were located outside of the main entrance, and the stadium holds 100,000 people, so we easily were seen by at least 30,000 people. We counted the conversations we had with people about our cars and NDEW, and had over 100 one-on-one conversations. We are able to reach a wide array of people since the football game is enjoyed by so many East Tennesseeans.

Event Description


The University of Tennessee's EcoCAR 3 team and East Tennessee Clean Fuels are hosting a NDEW Tailgate Event outside of Neyland Stadium before the UT vs Ohio State football game on Saturday, Sept 17. Join us at Gate 21 at Neyland Stadium for hands-on access to electric vehicles and educational information!

Game time is at Noon, but we will be on-hand a few hours before that. Gate 21 is directly accessible from Philip Fulmer Way.

Please note that we encourage you to come to learn, visit, kick the wheels, or volunteer, but we will NOT have space for you to bring your EV. This is a closed space accessible by pedestrians only.
