Fans Urged To Arrive Early At Death Valley Saturday

Aug. 26, 2003

Clemson Ticket Manager Van Hilderbrand is urging fans to arrive in Clemson early on Saturday for the Tigers football opener with Georgia. Over 83,000 fans are expected for the game, the largest home opener in Clemson history and the largest crowd ever to see a Clemson vs. Georgia game in Memorial Stadium. Saturday’s game is a sellout.

“The 12:00 noon start changes everything,” said Hilderbrand. “We encourage people to get to the Clemson area early. We will have attendants in the parking lots starting at 6:00 AM.”

Two years ago Clemson had a 12:00 noon start for a Homecoming game with North Carolina and many fans missed the first quarter, never mind kickoff because of the large attendance for the early game. With an early kickoff, fans tend to arrive at the same time. Hilderbrand is urging everyone to adjust their departure time so they can get to Clemson in time for kickoff.
