South Carolina explains student ticket changes for upcoming season
Rough news arrived on Tuesday for South Carolina students and their prospects for attending games this season in Williams-Brice Stadium.
The school announced that students will only be allowed to attend one of the five home games for the Gamecocks. At Williams-Brice Stadium, capacity will be reduced to about 20,000 available seats.
The home games will be Tennessee, Auburn, Texas A&M, Missouri and Georgia.
“Students will only be able to attend one football game this fall. Once a student has attended a game, they will no longer be eligible to complete the student ticketing process for football. If a student requests a ticket but does not claim a ticket they will still be able to request a ticket for another game. If a student requests a ticket and claims their ticket but then cancels it by 5 p.m. on Friday, they will still be eligible to request a ticket for a future game.”
The school also noted that student tickets will still be prioritized based on reward points. However, the only points that will be used to determine priority will be seniority points, rollover points and points from joining the Student Gamecock Club.
The request process for the game against Tennessee on Sept. 26 will begin on Sept. 21 at 9 a.m.
