Attending a Clemson football game at Memorial Stadium is an experience like no other for Tiger fans. From the iconic Howard’s Rock entrance to the roar of 80,000+ fans, a gameday in Clemson creates lifelong memories. Before you can be a part of this special tradition, you need access to game tickets.
Many fans want to know the process for accessing their Clemson football tickets each season. Luckily, the university has made this process straightforward for both new and returning ticket holders. This article will walk through the step-by-step process of accessing your tickets on gameday, along with some key information on acquiring tickets in the first place.
There are a few primary methods of acquiring Clemson football tickets:
Season Ticket Packages
The most common way fans get Clemson football tickets is via season ticket packages. These packages allow you to purchase tickets for the entire regular season slate of home games. Season tickets provide guaranteed access to tickets before they are made available to the general public.
There are a variety of season ticket options at different donation levels. More generous donations and higher priority points give you access to better seat locations.
Most season tickets are available through the Clemson Athletic Ticket Office. Some premium ticket areas like suites and the WestZone Club require additional contacts through the Clemson University Foundation.
Single Game Tickets
If you can’t commit to a full season ticket package, single game tickets are also made available. These are highly limited and sell out quickly, especially for premier games like the South Carolina rivalry.
Single game tickets can be purchased through the athletic ticket office, typically available in the summer months leading up to the season. Limited tickets may also be available through secondary ticket providers after initial sellouts.
One of the best parts of the Clemson gameday experience is the electric student section. All full-time Clemson students are eligible for discounted season tickets through a lottery system. The CUTIGER option provides access to both football and basketball games. Entry deadlines are typically in early August before the fall semester.
Accessing Tickets on Gameday
Once you’ve secured your Clemson football tickets through one of the above methods, you’ll need to access them on gameday to enter the stadium. The specific process depends on the ticket type:
Many Clemson tickets are now distributed in mobile format rather than paper tickets. If you purchased season tickets or single game seats through the athletic department, you likely have mobile tickets.
These are accessed by opening your electronic ticket account through Account Manager. You’ll need to show the unique QR code on your smartphone to be scanned at the gate. Make sure to have your tickets pulled up and ready before you arrive. Battery packs can help avoid power issues.
Some ticket packs may still utilize print-at-home tickets rather than mobile delivery. If you received an email with attached PDF ticket files, you’ll need to print these out to access the game. Be sure to print in color on standard 8.5×11 printer paper.
Bring the printed tickets with you on gameday and have them ready at the gate for scanning. Don’t forget to print tickets for every member of your group.
Hard Stock Tickets
Season ticket holders who have held their seats for many years may still have hard stock printed tickets. These benchmark tickets grant entrance just like a mobile or print-at-home ticket.
Carefully store these tickets in a safe location after you receive them. Bring them with you on gameday and have them scanned at gate access points. Contact the ticket office immediately if hard stock tickets are ever lost or stolen.
Students can access their tickets by logging into their student account at allin.com. Tickets will be digitally delivered to the account prior to the game. Bring your smartphone with the ticket ready to scan at gate entrances.
Make sure to enter with a valid Clemson student ID matching the ticket name. Student tickets are non-transferable.
Where to Access Tickets
There are designated “Pass Gates” at entry points around Memorial Stadium where you’ll scan tickets on gameday. Gates open 2 hours prior to kickoff, so arrive early for best availability. Standard ticket gates include:
- Gates 1 and 5: North stands behind the hill
- Gates 9 and 11: South stands
- Gates 13 and 15: West stands
- Gate 23: East stands
Season ticket holders typically enter at the gates indicated on their passes. Students should look for specially marked “Student Entrance” gates near Sections 1-4.
If you have a paper ticket, go to the first available gate attendant. For mobile tickets, you can often scan them yourself at electronic kiosks if the lines are long. Your valid ticket will grant you access to the inner concourse.
Be sure to follow all stadium policies when accessing your tickets:
- Be prepared for security screening at the gate, including metal detectors and bag checks.
- No re-entry is allowed – make sure you have everything before entering.
- Only printed valid tickets will be accepted, not digital copies or photos.
- Tickets can’t be resold above face value on stadium grounds.
Hopefully you’ll have smooth sailing when accessing your Clemson tickets. But technology and logistics issues occasionally arise. Here’s how to troubleshoot:
Mobile Ticket Problems
If you’re having trouble pulling up your mobile tickets, try these steps:
- Restart your phone
- Connect to stadium WiFi or toggle Airplane mode
- Open tickets in your internet browser if the app has issues
- Access tickets from your ticket account online as a last resort
Visit the ticket booth for assistance if still unable to access mobile tickets.
Lost or Forgotten Tickets
Left your physical tickets at home? Visit the ticket office immediately for a replacement. You may need to show purchase confirmation and government-issued ID.
Make sure your tickets were not stolen – report stolen tickets to the ticket office right away. They cannot be reissued to a new holder.
Enter at a Different Gate
If there are issues at your designated gate, stadium staff can direct you to alternate gates. Ushers can then route you to your correct seats from the new entry point.
Accessing your Clemson football tickets is a breeze as long as you follow the correct process. Whether you have physical tickets, mobile passes, or student tickets, entering Memorial Stadium on gameday is a feeling like no other. Your tickets open the door to an electric atmosphere that you’ll remember forever.
