15 in 15 GAMEDAY IMPROVEMENTS

Constantly looking to improve one of the nation’s best gameday experiences, Clemson Athletics today announced 15 new improvements for its fans to expect in Memorial Stadium for the 2015 football season. You can read all about the new inititives here.

HOT WEATHER PLANS

In an effort to combat possible hot temperatures during the first two contests of the 2015 season, Clemson Athletics has taken measures to provide heat-beating solutions to its fans. Six “Cool Zones” located throughout the upper and lower levels will allow for a place to step out of the heat, while concession partner Ararmark has assisted in lowering the price of water by $1 and offering cups of ice for sale.
