Clemson To Hold Fan Appreciation Day August 18th

CLEMSON, SC - Clemson will hold its annual Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday, August 18 in Clemson Memorial Stadium.  All Clemson players and Head Coach Dabo Swinney will be available for autographs beginning at 2:30 PM.  The session will last for two and a half hours.  No one will be allowed inside the stadium prior to 2:30 PM.

Fans will be allowed to enter through Gates 1, 9 and 11.  T-shirts will be available for the first 1,000 fans 12 years of age or younger.  Media guides and football game tickets will be on sale at the athletic ticket office from 1:30 PM-3:30 PM.  Football posters will also be available at Gate 1, 9 and 11.  The IPTAY Office will be open for those who have questions concerning their donation or parking from 1:30 PM-3:30 PM.

Coca-Cola will provide free water and soft drinks for attendees.  Concessions and novelties will also be available for purchase.  In addition, programs from the 2012 season will be available for purchase.

Clemson players will be positioned on the concourse level throughout the stadium.  Please note the entrances below as they have changed from the past.

·      Enter Gate 1 for the offensive players.  There will be a single continuous line that will include all offensive players.  Fans will then exit through Gate 13.
·      Enter Gate 9 for the defensive players.  There will be a single continuous line that will include all defensive players.  Fans will then exit through Gate 5.
·      Enter Gate 11 for Coach Swinney who will be in the West Endzone.  There will be a single continuous line that will include Coach Swinney and the mascots.  Fans will then exit back through Gate 11.
·      Fans will be permitted to enter the Gate adjacent to the Rock to take photos of the Rock, and must exit back out of that same gate.

Lines will be monitored by event staff and will be cut off at appropriate times.  It is important for fans to realize that it is very difficult to get all of their favorite players' autographs in the 2.5-hour limit.

*Due to the large turnout expected, there will be a one autograph per player limit.  Fans may take photos of players, but no photos will be permitted with players.  This will assist in allowing more fans to meet as many players as possible during the event.  Thank you for your help with this policy.

One of the great things about football season is that it offers the opportunity to welcome people to Clemson (either for the first time or after a long time away).  

At Clemson, we believe that we have something special and are excited to showcase that special college football environment each time we host a visitor.  Our goal  is very simple:  To be incredible hosts to our visitors and provide the ultimate game day experience.

There is an additional buzz in the air for Week 2 at Clemson, as we host the the Auburn Tigers and their fans for what should be an electric game day weekend with two Top 15 football teams in an ACC vs. SEC match-up in prime time!  We hope that your trip here will be exciting, memo…

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million

To illustrate the quality of the investment of the upper deck.  The $13.5 million dollar investment is recovered in just 3 years (7 home games per year) in ticket sales.  Each game Clemson sells out the North Upper Deck, over $600,000 goes towards Clemson Athletics.

The North Upper Deck is slightly larger than the South Upper Deck. The reason for this is simple. Engineers had more room to build behind the North Upper Deck than they did behind the South Upper Deck (with Cemetery Hill behind the South). This al…
