(USC SID) -- For the second straight year, the Gamecock Club will be taking the Fan Fest event on the road. During the month of May, the Gamecock Club will host Fan Fest events at four venues around the state of South Carolina, Charlotte and Atlanta to promote the 2012 football season.

Head Coach Steve Spurrier will also bring back the popular game ball fundraiser where he will sign souvenir footballs celebrating the 2011 historic record-setting season for an $80 donation.

Each event will last from 5:30 - 8 p.m. and will have kids' activities, Cocky and the cheerleaders, and photo opportunities with football and baseball trophies. In addition, Coach Spurrier and current student-athletes from the local area will speak to the crowd and answer a few questions.
