Clemson, SC-Clemson will hold its annual Spring Football Game
Saturday at 1:00 PM at Riggs Field. The contest will close spring
practice for Tommy Bowden's fourth Clemson team.
The event will be held at Riggs Field due to renovations at
Clemson Memorial Stadium. Admission to the scrimmage will be free of
charge, but will be limited to IPTAY members, Clemson students,
faculty, staff and former players. Fans must have an identification
to gain admittance. If seats are still available at 1:00 PM, the
general public will be admitted until the facility is full. Riggs
Field has held as many as 8,000 fans for soccer.
The gates will open at 11:00 AM. Parking will be available
at the lots normally used for Clemson soccer matches. That includes
the intramural fields adjacent to the Clemson Hoke Sloan Tennis
Facility, and the area behind the entrance to the North Upper Deck of
Clemson Memorial Stadium.
As is the case with Clemson regular season games, no book
bags or large carry bags will be allowed in the stadium.
Riggs Field was the home of Clemson football from 1915-41.
Both the Clemson men's and women's soccer programs call the facility
home now. It has been converted to a football field, complete with
goalposts, for Saturday's game.
It will be the first time since the final home game of the 1941
season that the Clemson varsity has played a football game on Riggs
Field. The Clemson freshman team played the Duke freshmen team there
