Football Ticketing Process

On Monday at 9am until Tuesday at 4pm of the week leading up to a football game, students must request a ticket if they are interested in attending. The request process does NOT guarantee a ticket to the game. To request a ticket use the Gamecock Student Rewards app, and click on ticketing. For basketball and baseball, there is not request period.  

Beginning Wednesday at 9am until Thursday at 4pm, students that were awarded the opportunity to claim a ticket can go and claim their ticket to guarantee admission into the game. You MUST claim your ticket by Thursday at 4pm or you will lose your ticket. If available, unclaimed lower deck tickets will be used to upgrade students who claimed upper deck student tickets. 

Students that did not receive a ticket during the claim period can claim any remaining tickets during the On Demand period which begins on Thursday at 5pm. These tickets will be in the Upper Deck unless requests did not exceed the number of Lower Deck tickets.

Your seat location will appear the morning of the game. Opt-in to text messages to receive weekly text reminders at 9am Saturday morning. To speed up the process at the gate, pull up your ticket on your phone before leaving for Williams-Brice stadium. If you have an iPhone, put the ticket in your Apple Wallet for easier access. If you decide to not attend the game, you MUST cancel your ticket by Friday afternoon. If you fail to cancel your ticket and do not attend the game, you will receive a strike. Once you receive two strikes, you will lose your ticketing privileges for the season.

Full Athletic Calendar

Attending a Football Game

Your phone contains your ticket. Make sure to have it charged upon entry to the stadium. You are responsible for having your student ticket available upon entry to the stadium. 

Although you do not have to present your CarolinaCard at the gate, you must have it on you at all times during athletic events. If you fail to present it if asked by a university official, you will be ejected from the game. 

If you have a lower level seat, you will need to enter through the student gate. Students seated in the upper deck can enter in through any general public gate, except the student gate. 

NOTE: Student lower gates open 2 hours in advance. Arrive early to avoid lines that form around the time of kickoff. Students must enter by half time of each game. Student gates will close after that time and you will not gain entry into the stadium.

Students seated in the lower deck will receive a wristband upon entrance into the northeast Student Gate. The wristband must be worn at all times. If found in the lower deck without a wristband, you will be removed from the stadium and lose your ticket privileges.

Upper deck students can enter in through any general public gate, except the student gate. Students are expected to sit in the seat in which they have been assigned. If you are found sitting somewhere else and refuse to move, you will be removed from the stadium and lose your ticketing privileges.

If you fail to cancel your ticket by 5pm Friday and do not attend the game, you will receive a strike. Once you receive two strikes, you will lose your ticketing privileges for the season. If you get four strikes during your time at UofSC, you will permanently lose ticket privileges.

Reward Points

Enter Williams-Brice Stadium at a student entrance before halftime to get points by scanning your mobile ticket. Stay for the entire game and get a voucher for an extra point.

Southeastern Conference Games: 1 point
Non-Southeastern Conference Games: 2 points
