Clemson, SC-Clemson has sold a record 57,991 season tickets for the 2007 football season, Ticket Manager Travis Furbee announced Tuesday. The previous record was 57,625 season tickets for the 1988 football season. The previous high in the Tommy Bowden era was 57,506 for the 2001 season.


In addition to the season ticket totals, Clemson Senior Associate Athletic Director Bill D'Andrea announced that the IPTAY Annual Fund had reached a record total, thanks in part to the participation of a record number of donors. The IPTAY Annual Fund surpassed $15 million for the first time and the donor total exceeded 16,000. The donor total does not include members of the Tiger Cub Club.


D'Andrea also confirmed that the goal of raising $27 million for Phase I of the WestZone Capital Campaign had been reached.
"We are certainly proud of the support we have seen from our loyal IPTAY donors," said D'Andrea. "It has been an extraordinary year. We are very excited to reach our goal for Phase I of the WestZone Initiative, and now we are in the process of moving on to our goals for Phase II.
"Phase II is very important because it will allow our football operation to move to Death Valley to a new facility. It will thereby allow more office space, locker room space and strength training for our Olympic Sports programs as well, so the project benefits the entire department.


"We are excited about the coming football season and obviously so are our fans. To reach a season ticket record with a schedule that has seven home games and does not include South Carolina speaks volumes to the level of support for this program.
