Clemson announces new student football ticket plan
Clemson Undergraduate Student Government sent out a new ticketing plan for students on Thursday, which will offer a season ticket package.
A total of 3,600 season tickets will be available with the registration process being open on August 1. The release says that 2,600 will be in the lower deck available for $280 and 1,000 in the upper for $210.
There will be 10,200 total student tickets available with the non-season tickets available for free in the lower and upper deck and Hill sections through a lottery, with priority based on credit hours and IPTAY membership.
A third option listed is free gameday pick-up tickets for 1,500 Hill spots, unclaimed lottery tickets and returned tickets on a first-come, first-served basis.
All Hill tickets will be free with half available by lottery and half there on gameday. Half of the lower deck and upper deck seating will be available by lottery as well.

Clemson Athletics FAQ on tickets
Why is the student ticket allocation process changing?
Over the past few years, there has been a great deal of discussion surrounding student football ticketing. After receiving many comments and complaints from students, CUSG and Clemson Athletics came together to make adjustments which allow students more control in acquiring tickets. The goal is to get these valuable tickets in the hands of the students who want them the most, while also continuing to provide every student an opportunity to experience the long-standing tradition of Clemson Football gamedays.
Can I sit with my friends?
Yes! Free tickets are available in every student section so regardless of how you receive your ticket, you have the opportunity to sit with your friends. Tickets are fully transferable, enabling students to freely exchange tickets with other students to keep friends together.
Can I transfer my purchased season ticket to another student?
Yes, all tickets can be transferred to other students. However, only purchased tickets can be resold, whereas free tickets from the lottery or gameday pick-up cannot be transferred for monetary value.

How does a student request a season ticket?
Online registration for season tickets will begin August 1. Full details on the registration process will be available later this summer.
What happens if more than 3,600 students request season tickets?
All requests received prior to the registration deadline of August 9 will be then ranked in priority order, with consideration given to seniority (credit hours completed) in school and IPTAY Collegiate Club participation. Details on priority ranking will be provided prior to the beginning of the registration process.
What happens if fewer than 3,600 students request season tickets?
Any unsold student tickets will be made available as part of the single-game process. The
student ticket allocation will not be affected by unsold tickets.
How will single-game tickets be allotted and distributed?
After season tickets have been assigned, a lottery will be held to allot free single-game tickets to students. A student may enter the lottery for any particular home game or for every home game, with their odds of getting a ticket unchanged. A weighted lottery will be held, with priority given based on seniority (credit hours) and IPTAY status (years of Collegiate Club membership), with the winners announced prior to the start of the season. In an effort to increase student attendance at games and to reduce the timeframe for the inappropriate sale of these free tickets, tickets will be only be distributed the week of each game. Students will pick up tickets at an on-campus location during a set time period from Wednesday to Friday prior to home games. Further details will be communicated in August.
How does gameday distribution work?
Students can pick up any remaining free tickets on game days at an on-campus location on a first-come, first-served basis. Further details will be communicated in August.
Will we know if we received a season ticket before the free lottery ticket registration begins?
Yes! Those students who receive a season ticket will be notified prior to the registration deadline for the free student ticket lottery. Students who do not receive a season ticket may enter the lottery for free single-game tickets for as many home games as they wish.
How many tickets are available for students?
A total of 10,200 tickets are dedicated to enrolled students, the same allocated in previous years.
Are there perks for IPTAY Collegiate Club members?
Yes, as always, IPTAY Collegiate Club members will receive priority in ticketing. For $40 a year (or $130 for all four years) to IPTAY, Collegiate Club members will have a priority benefit in both the season ticket request and single-game lottery.
