Alumni Association helps create travel package for Gamecock fans

The Carolina Alumni Association at the University of South Carolina will partner with Premier Global Sports – College Division to offer Gamecock alumni and fans the opportunity to travel together to major sporting events.

Working in conjunction with the University of South Carolina Athletics Gamecock Club, the joint venture creates Gamecock Sports Travel, which will provide fans with convenient access to travel options for select University South Carolina sporting events, as well as other national events such as The Masters, the Kentucky Derby and the Super Bowl.

Gamecock Sports Travel will offer trips for football bowl games specifically tailored to Gamecock fans, select regular-season football weekends and football game-day charter flights. Festive motor coach trips for shorter destinations and basketball travel options also will be available.

The first football game-day charter flight will be the Oct. 17 game against the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Alumni and fans will have the opportunity to travel together and enjoy a package that includes in-flight beverages and deluxe round-trip motor coach transportation to and from the stadium that includes refreshments. Optional game tickets also are available for participants.

To register for the Oct. 17 game-day charter trip, call 877-352-1982, or visit the Web site: www.GamecockSportsTravel.com. On the Web site, Carolina alumni and fans also can sign up to receive e-mail notifications for upcoming sports travel opportunities.
