1870 Court–Ultimate Red Storm Fan Tailgate

Get ready to cheer on the Men’s Basketball team all season long! We are excited to gather alumni and friends, once again, from all over to cheer on the Johnnies. 

Join us as we bring back the 1870 Court–Ultimate Red Storm Tailgate for select BIG EAST home games at Carnesecca Arena and the world-renowned Madison Square Garden. Enjoy a rotating menu and a cash bar serving beer and wine. All 1870 Court tickets include a food voucher.

We strongly encourage all tickets to be purchased in advance. All Johnnies and fellow St. John's Basketball fans are welcome! 

Interested in volunteering at or recruiting for one of our local 1870 Courts? Reach out to Ashley Cimato, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations, at 718-990-6817 or [email protected].

Can’t make it to home games in NYC? Join us for special 1870 Court on the Road events where we bring the Ultimate Red Storm Tailgate to a town near you prior to select Johnnies away games. Come together with fellow fans around the country and the globe to support the Red Storm. 

Throughout the season, make sure to bring together St. John’s alumni and friends in your area for Game Watches. These volunteer-driven events are perfect for meeting up in the NYC metro area or wherever Johnnies are to show your Red Storm pride with fellow fans!   

Interested in planning or hosting an 1870 Court on the Road or Game Watch? Reach out to Rita Torsney-Sullivan ’20MBA, Associate Director, Alumni Engagement and Volunteer Programs, at 718-990-6168 or [email protected].
