The South Carolina Gamecock Club Board of Directors has unanimously approved a recommendation by athletics director Eric Hyman to not increase dues for the upcoming membership year.
"We appreciate the continued financial support and loyalty of Gamecock Nation," said Hyman. "And we also recognize and understand the difficult economic times we are facing."
In May 2007, the Gamecock Club Board of Directors approved a schedule in which Gamecock Club membership dues would increase at a rate of 10 percent annually for five years, effective January 1, 2008. Thus far, one increase (2009) in the five-year plan has occurred.
