As the Clemson Tiger football team battled Georgia Tech on Saturday, October 23, two Clemson fans received a one-of-a-kind game-day experience thanks to Bi-Lo’s Tailgate with the Tigers promotion. Toni Ott, from Branchville, SC and Courtney Gatlin, from Belmont, NC, were selected as the two promotion winners.
Ott and Gatlin had a full day of Clemson football. Each of them were able to bring four guests along for the experience. Their day started with a tour of the West End Zone Facility, including watching the Tiger Walk from the fourth level balcony. From there, they went to the Hill to take pictures at the Rock, and had their names displayed on Pawvision. After walking down the Hill, Ott and Gatlin were able to snap a few photos wearing Coach Dabo Swinney’s headset.
From the field, the winners and guests went up to their private suite stocked with food and drinks, as well as gift bags for everyone. After relaxing and enjoying time in the suite, Ott , Gatlin and their guests returned to the field for the pre-game activities, which were highlighted by watching the Tigers run down the Hill. After returning to the suite to watch the game, their in-game experience included visits from men’s basketball coach Brad Brownell, men’s soccer coach Mike Noonan, baseball coach Jack Leggett and even the Tiger Mascot, while watching the Tigers defeat Georgia Tech on a perfect day.
Toni Ott described her experience. “My football fantasy became a reality with “Bi-Lo’s Tailgate with the Top Tigers” contest. Because of this promotion, I had a behind-the-scenes look at the stadium on game day, met Clemson coaches and experienced the pre-game festivities on the football field. This was the ultimate tailgating experience!”
