A new student ticketing plan has been established for the 2018 home football season, and we’re excited to share details with the Clemson student body.
The uniquely Clemson tradition of providing students access to football tickets at absolutely no cost will continue under the new plan, as free game tickets will be provided to students in each student section. The new plan now also provides an opportunity for students to purchase a season ticket, and students will have more control over the ticketing process. Members of the IPTAY Collegiate Club and upperclassmen will continue to receive benefits.
Below, you can learn what’s new this year and read the answers to questions you may have. In addition, we’ve created a student feedback email address, coordinated by Student Government, to which you can share your questions, comments or concerns. Simply email: email@example.com.
Over the past few years, there has been a great deal of discussion surrounding student football ticketing. After receiving many comments and complaints from students, CUSG and Clemson Athletics came together to make adjustments which allow students more control in acquiring tickets. The goal is to get these valuable tickets in the hands of the students who want them the most, while also continuing to provide every student an opportunity to experience the long-standing tradition of Clemson Football gamedays.
Yes! Free tickets are available in every student section so regardless of how you receive your ticket, you have the opportunity to sit with your friends. Tickets are fully transferable, enabling students to freely exchange tickets with other students to keep friends together.
Yes, all tickets can be transferred to other students. However, only purchased tickets can be resold, whereas free tickets from the lottery or gameday pick-up cannot be transferred for monetary value.

For the first time, students will have the opportunity to reserve a season ticket for all seven home games. Lower deck tickets will cost $40 per game ($280 total for the season), and upper deck tickets will be $30 per game ($210 total for the season).
Online registration for season tickets will begin August 1. Full details on the registration process will be available later this summer.
All requests received prior to the registration deadline of August 9 will be then ranked in priority order, with consideration given to seniority (credit hours completed) in school and IPTAY Collegiate Club participation. Details on priority ranking will be provided prior to the beginning of the registration process.
Any unsold student tickets will be made available as part of the single-game process. The
student ticket allocation will not be effected by unsold tickets.
After season tickets have been assigned, a lottery will be held to allot free single-game tickets to students. A student may enter the lottery for any particular home game or for every home game, with their odds of getting a ticket unchanged. A weighted lottery will be held, with priority given based on seniority (credit hours) and IPTAY status (years of Collegiate Club membership), with the winners announced prior to the start of the season. In an effort to increase student attendance at games and to reduce the timeframe for the inappropriate sale of these free tickets, tickets will be only be distributed the week of each game. Students will pick up tickets at an on-campus location during a set time period from Wednesday to Friday prior to home games. Further details will be communicated in August.
Students can pick up any remaining free tickets on game days at an on-campus location on a first-come, first-served basis. Further details will be communicated in August.
Yes! Those students who receive a season ticket will be notified prior to the registration deadline for the free student ticket lottery. Students who do not receive a season ticket may enter the lottery for free single-game tickets for as many home games as they wish.
A total of 10,200 tickets are dedicated to enrolled students, the same allocated in previous years.
Yes, as always, IPTAY Collegiate Club members will receive priority in ticketing. For $40 a year (or $130 for all four years) to IPTAY, Collegiate Club members will have a priority benefit in both the season ticket request and single-game lottery.
