Despite its tremendous recent success, South Carolina is staying grounded when it comes to football ticket prices.
Athletic director Ray Tanner confirmed that individual ticket prices and season ticket prices will not be raised on Friday, following a school year-end presentation of his department to the USC Board of Trustees. It tied in with USC announcing its ticket mini-plans and dates for purchase.
“I know sales have gone well,” Tanner said. “Premium-area sales have been the best they’ve ever been. I don’t have a number (of season tickets sold) today, but season-ticket sales are outstanding.”
Mini-plans will go on sale for Gamecock Club members and USC faculty and staff on July 28. Mini-plans to the public will go on sale on Aug. 4. Fans can buy mini-plans for three or four games this year.
A four-game mini-plan costs $225 and includes tickets for East Carolina (Sept. 6), Missouri (Sept. 27), Furman (Oct. 18) and Tennessee (Nov. 1). A three-game mini-plan costs $135 and includes tickets for Furman, Tennessee and South Alabama (Nov. 22). The only way fans are guaranteed a ticket for the home opener against Texas A&M on Aug. 28, and for the Georgia game on Sept. 13, is by purchasing a season ticket. Season tickets cost $365 per Gamecock Club member last year.
Individual game tickets will be put on sale on Aug. 11 to the Gamecock Club and USC faculty, and on Aug. 18 to the public. Costs are: Texas A&M ($70), East Carolina ($50), Georgia ($75), Missouri ($70), Furman ($35), Tennessee ($70), South Alabama ($30). No Texas A&M or Georgia individual game tickets will be available to the general public.
