Clemson Has Sold 56,808 Season Tickets

Sept. 3, 2002

Clemson Ticket Manager Van Hilderbrand announced Tuesday that Clemson has sold 56,808 season tickets for the 2002 season. The number is the highest ever for a seven-game home schedule and the sixth highest figure in history. It is the second highest figure since 1990.

Hilderbrand pointed out that season tickets are still available. The Tigers open the home schedule this Saturday at 1:00 PM against Louisiana Tech.

“Considering this is a seven-game schedule and thus a season ticket that is $34 higher than last year, we have had outstanding sales,” said Hilderbrand.

The previous record for a seven-game home schedule took place in 1991 when Clemson sold 55,322 season tickets after a 10-2 1990 season. Last year Clemson sold 57,506 season tickets for its six game package. The Tigers ranked 14th in the nation in average attendance last year with an average of 80,152, the second highest season average in Clemson history.
