Fan Gameday Guide

Arrive early due to new stadium security measures

Metal detector screening procedures are in effect at all gates at Memorial Stadium in 2019. Fans are encouraged to arrive early and listen to security personnel. Gates are scheduled to open two and a half hours before kick on Aug. 29. The clear bag policy enters its 4th season, and requires all items brought into the stadium to fit in a clear bag no larger than 12” wide x 12” tall by 6” deep. Visit ClemsonTigers.com/gamedaysecurity for details.

Parking lot and stadium gates open times

Parking lots open at 8 a.m. and fans can enter Memorial Stadium two and a half hours before kick for this game at 5:30 p.m. This is 30 minutes earlier than in the past. At this time, this is for the Georgia Tech game only.

Tiger Walk scheduled for 5:50 p.m.

Now in its 11th year, the team’s initial entrance into the stadium from the west in Lot 5 takes place two hours and ten minutes before kick.

Special-Edition College Gameday live from Memorial Stadium

Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard and Maria Taylor of ESPN College GameDay will be inside Gate 5 in the northeast corner of Death Valley previewing the game from 6-8 p.m. The show is scheduled to be simulcast on ESPN and ACCN from 6-7 p.m., and moves to ACCN exclusively from 7-8 p.m., leading up to kickoff. The show will NOT take place on Bowman Field. This is a "special edition" show, and fans are encouraged to enter the stadium early and get to their seats to create a fantastic atmosphere for a national audience.
