Clemson, S.C. – Clemson will hold its annual Fan Appreciation Day presented by Greenville Heath Systems and Coca-Cola on Sunday, August 17 in Memorial Stadium. Coach Dabo Swinney and players will be available for autographs beginning at 2:30 p.m., and the session will last for two and a half hours.
Fans will be allowed to enter through all lower level gates, and autograph books will be available for the first 5,000 fans 18 years of age or younger. Football posters will also be available at all gates.
Media guides and football game tickets will be on sale at the athletic ticket office from 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m., and the IPTAY Office will be open for the same time period for those with questions about their donation or parking.
Coca-Cola will provide free water and soft drinks for attendees, and other concessions and novelties will be available for purchase.
Clemson players will be positioned on the concourse level throughout the stadium, with separate lines for each position. (Map attached.)
Recommended Entry Points for Each Position
• Running Backs: Gate 1
• Offensive Line: Gate 1
• Wide Receivers: Gate 13
• Quarterbacks: Gate 13
• Defensive Line: Gate 9
• Linebackers: Gate 9
• Defensive Backs / Safeties: Gate 5
• Special Teams: Gate 5
• Coach Swinney: Gate 10 (Visitors Tunnel)
• The Tiger: Gate 11
Lines will be monitored by event staff and will be cut-off at appropriate times. It is important for fans to realize that it is very difficult to get all of their favorite players' autographs in the 2.5-hour limit.
*Due to the large turnout expected, there will be a one autograph per player limit. Fans may take photos of players but no photos will be permitted with players. This will assist in allowing more fans to meet as many players as possible during the event. Thank you for your help with this policy.
