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. Request are prioritized and tickets are awarded based on Gamecock Reward points. The number of points required to receive a ticket  varies and is determined once all requests are placed. For soccer, 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. Unclaimed student tickets will be made available during the On Demand period for those that requested a ticket but did not qualify for the claim period. 

Students who requested a ticket, but did not receive one during the claim period can claim any remaining tickets during the On Demand period which begins on Thursday at 5pm. These tickets are first come, first serve and will go fast. You can try back until 5pm on Friday to see if any students have cancelled their tickets. 

Your ticket barcode  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 at 5pm. If you fail to cancel your ticket and do not attend the game, you will lose your ticketing privledges for the 2021 football season (this policy only applies to the 2020 football season because of the limited student tickets). Student tickets are non-transferrable and if found distributing or requesting another student's ticket will lead to you losing ticketing privileges.  

Guest tickets will not be available for the 2020 football season due to limited capacity.

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. 

You must present your CarolinaCard and student ticket at the gate upon entry. If you fail to present it if asked by a university official, you will be ejected from the game. 

Students enter through the student gate at the north-east corner of Williams-Brice Stadium.

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.

South Carolina Athletics has a clear bag policy for all ticketed athletic events that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into the venues for baseball, men's and women's basketball, football, men's and women's soccer, softball and volleyball. Please review the list of approved and unapproved bags on this page before attending an athletic event. 


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 for the next football season. No guests are allowed in the lower deck.

Depending on the game, upper deck tickets may be available. These tickets will be assigned seats located outside of the lower deck student section.  

Penalty strikes have been suspended for the 2020 football season. If you fail to cancel your ticket by 5pm Friday and do not attend the game, you will lose your ticketing for the next football season.

  • Seniority
    • Seniors - 8 points
