Fan Experience Improvements for 2018

While the team has been working on the field to get ready for the upcoming 2018 football season, the Clemson Athletic department has been updating and adding to Memorial Stadium throughout the year.  These renovations and additions include new signage, prices on concessions, safety measures and improvements to the fan experience on gameday.

Metal Detectors at Select Gates

In an effort to ensure that Memorial Stadium is the safest possible venue for fans during the 2018 season and beyond, Clemson Athletics, in conjunction with the Clemson University Police Department, will implement a walk-thru metal detector pilot program, a common practice at many major sports venues across the country. Select gates, rotating throughout the season, will have the walk-thru units outside of the stadium. For more information on how to be prepared, visit our Metal Detector guidelines page here.

New Videos for the PawVision Board

New gameday entertainment will include a new video to play while the team is riding buses around the stadium prior to running down The Hill and a new fourth quarter video to pump the players and crowd up before the fourth quarter begins.
