Clemson To Hold Fan Appreciation Day Sunday
CLEMSON, S.C. (CU SID) -- Clemson will hold its annual Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday, August 19 at Clemson Memorial Stadium. All Clemson players and Coach Swinney will be available for autographs beginning at 3:00 p.m. The session will last for two hours. No one will be allowed inside the stadium prior to 3:00 p.m.
Fans will be allowed to enter through Gates 1, 5, 9 and 13. T-shirt vouchers will be available for the first 1,000 fans 12 years of age or younger who attend Fan Appreciation Day. Those vouchers can be redeemed at the concession stand located inside of Gate 5. Media guides and football game tickets will be on sale at the Clemson Athletic Ticket Office from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Season football posters will also be available at Gate 5. The IPTAY Office will be open for those having questions concerning their donation or parking from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Clemson players will be positioned on the concourse level throughout the stadium.
· Enter Gate 1 or 13 for the offensive players.
· Enter the swing gate located south of Gate 1 towards Cemetery Hill for Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins, DeAndre Hopkins, and Andre Ellington, who will be located in the South elevator area.
· Enter Gate 5 or 9 for the defensive players.
· Enter Gate 9 for the mascots.
· Enter Gate 13 for Coach Swinney, who will be in the West End Zone.
Players will sign autographs until 5:00 p.m. It is important for fans to realize that it is very difficult to get all of their favorite players' autographs or pictures in the two-hour limit.
*Due to the large turnout expected, there will be a one autograph or photo per player limit. This will assist in allowing more fans to meet as many players as possible during the event. Thank you for your help with this policy.*
The first 2,000 fans who fill out the survey (can be found on ClemsonTigers.com) and return it to the table inside of Gate 9 will receive a free plastic mini Clemson Football. Footballs are limited to one per survey. Fans are encouraged to print and completely fill out the survey before they enter Memorial Stadium. Fans may also pick up the survey from the table outside of the IPTAY office or print it from Facebook.
The Novelty Store will be open at the entrance to the West End Zone from 3-5 p.m. There will also be two Novelty stands open in the stadium, one on the North side and one on the South side, for the duration of Fan Appreciation Day.
