At the Stadium

  • The stadium seating areas will be at 100% capacity and students will return to their traditional locations. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to be in place in time for Running Down the Hill.
  • The stadium clear bag policy is still in effect. Fans are reminded to keep their phone and keys in their pockets as they proceed through the metal detectors.
  • Tiger Walk Driven by Chevrolet will take place in its traditional time and location. Masks are strongly encouraged.
  • Face coverings are recommended, but not required, in all areas of Memorial Stadium. All guests on university transit and shuttles are required to mask per current university policy. (updated)
  • Fans should be considerate of others and utilize proper cheering etiquette. Screaming, hugging, and high-fiving may not be welcomed physical interactions amongst strangers this season. Guests should be aware of their surroundings and the safety of others.
  • For at least the first two games, Gathering at the Paw will not take place after the game. To protect all game participants (including visiting teams) from virus transmission, fans should refrain from entering the field of play at any time – pregame, in-game, or postgame.
  • SC DHEC is partnering to offer free COVID vaccinations at Littlejohn Coliseum on game days. More details will be released in the coming days.

Clemson will continue to evaluate and seek feedback throughout the season, and guidelines are subject to change. Fans can visit for the latest news and facility procedures.
