Clemson is encouraging all Tiger fans to show their spirit and wear orange for the Solid Orange … One Clemson “A Sea of Orange” Weekend that will kickoff the 2003-04 year. Festivities will begin Friday, August 29th at 6:00 PM with the Central Spirit First Friday Parade and continue with a pep rally immediately following on Riggs Field. The women’s soccer team will then take on South Carolina at 7:30 PM in the season opener. The weekend continues on Saturday with the football season opener against Georgia at noon in Memorial Stadium.

“With every Clemson fan wearing orange to the women’s soccer match against South Carolina on Friday night, Aug. 29th and also to the football game against Georgia on Saturday, Aug. 30th we as a united front can increase our competitive home field advantage against our rivals,” said Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips.

The first 500 fans wearing orange to the soccer match will receive a free Solid Orange t-shirt with four of those shirts specially marked for additional prizes. Tiger Band, Cheerleaders, Rally Cats, the Tiger and Tiger Cub mascots and Central Spirit will be on hand to welcome fans to the electric atmosphere.

“The Solid Orange…One Clemson principle promotes unity, spirit and oneness with the Clemson Family. Its goal is to build strong relationships throughout the state and assist Clemson in becoming a top 20 institution.
