Improve Ticket & Parking Location
Interactive Parking Map

The interactive parking map is a great resource for new and returning IPTAY donors that overviews gameday parking in relation to Clemson football. This map is intended to breakdown gameday parking based on general parking locations, specific lot arrangements, required minimum giving level, parking assignments and eligibility.

When referencing the parking map, donors are encouraged to select their desired gameday parking location. Orange dots indicate lot locations that provide a more detailed look at specific eligibility requirements. Your giving level must match what you requested for parking on your football ticket and parking application.

To improve an existing parking location please reference the eligibility requirements and minimum giving level to qualify for parking reassignments. To view your current parking assignment and donor level, please log into your account.

Seat Equity

Clemson has joined other top-20 Football Bowl Subdivisions attendance leaders in adding a preferred seating component to our annual giving program. Under this plan, season ticket holders who gave at or above the specific per-seat value qualify for specific seating in Memorial Stadium. In recent adjustments to the seat equity plan, all season tickets in Memorial Stadium available for purchase require a per-seat donation. These adjustments were determined and endorsed by the IPTAY Board of Directors and the Athletic Department.

To estimate the minimum IPTAY donation required to renew your seats, simply multiple the value for your section by the number of tickets you have in that specific location. As a reminder, the maximum number of season tickets an IPTAY Donor is eligible to purchase each season is determined by your IPTAY annual giving level.

 

Seat Equity Plan Equation: IPTAY Seat Value x Number of Seats = Required IPTAY donation

 

Per-seat donations are a common system utilized in intercollegiate athletics to enhance the annual support provided to student-athletes. When the initial IPTAY Seat Equity Plan was announced and implemented in 2008, modified in 2013, one component of the plan permitted periodic marketplace reviews of the values of each section of seating in Memorial Stadium. The diagram below shows per-seat donations implemented for the IPTAY 2017 year.

Please note meeting the per-seat donation does not guarantee assignment in the location. New or additional football season tickets are assigned by IPTAY level and the priority points within that level.

2020 Football Parking Expectations

The annual reassignment of football parking each spring can be a difficult task as we balance the loyalty and generosity of IPTAY members with the campus-wide growth affecting parking inventory each year.

2020:

  • Construction and changes to campus will reduce the available parking options in the following lots: East Beach, STI (Strom Thurmond Institute), East Library, Williamson Road (Gate 16), and the South Box Ramp
  • We will be gaining parking options in the following locations: CUAD driving range, College of Business, and Jervey.

Parking for the 2020 season will undoubtedly be added to this list as we are managing the loss of high demand areas in various locations both near the stadium and across campus.  With this annual reassignment there has always been the chance that your space can change from one year to the next but when we lose a significant number of spaces, and in highly requested locations, this can create a domino effect throughout all parking lots.

We will continue to work through options to expand current lots, add new lots and/or change the layout of lots to address the changes.

What does this mean for you as an annual IPTAY donor as you order your football season tickets starting this Sunday, March 1st?

  • Please review the interactive football parking map. The map can be segmented by each giving level to review which parking lot/space options will be available for you to request on your application.
  • The giving levels reflect the minimum to be eligible for the lot. These are not guarantees; however, it is a good resource to utilize when you are deciding which lots to request on your application
  • It is also of the utmost importance to give meaningful consideration to your 2nd and 3rd parking requests.
  • As our staff makes these assignments we want to assign you to a location that you request which is only possible if we have multiple choices if the first option is unavailable when your membership comes up for assignment.
  • Help us, help you. Be specific in your request. See examples below
  1. I want to be next to my brother John Smith (IPTAY #1234) because we share tailgating equipment
  2. I want to be in Lot 12 because it’s on the Greenville/Anderson side to get home quicker

Our goal is to continue to provide great parking locations and a premium tailgating atmosphere that can be enjoyed by your family and friends that join us for Clemson Football game days. That experience is possible for the 2020 season despite these changes thanks to your continued support of IPTAY.

Disabled Patrons Tickets & Parking

Disable Patrons Parking

Free accessible parking for home football games is in parking lot E-6 (behind Sikes Hall), along Parkway Drive, and Cherry Road. Upon entering the lot, a uniformed officer will verify that you have a valid, state issued handicap placard or license tag that is appropriately displayed and will give you blue wristbands that will allow you to use the accessible shuttle service to access the stadium.

Accessible Gameday Transportation

Upon entry into the Sikes, Parkway Drive, and Cherry Road lot, a uniformed officer will verify your handicap parking placard and give you two wristbands, one for the person the pass is assigned to and one for an assistant. The wristbands will serve as your ticket to use the handicap accessible shuttles to and from Gate 1 of Memorial Stadium. Shuttle service begins 3 hours prior to all home games. As with all weekends, buses do not run on campus during the weekend games.

If you did not park in the Sikes, Parkway Drive, and Cherry Road lot and need assistance in getting to the stadium, look for the pickup locations designated by the tall white poles with the blue stripe. Transit Service on gameday is available from the following areas: C-1 parking lot, Snow Center, Seneca Creek Meadows Lot, and Newspring Church.

  • C-1 parking lot: shuttle operates from when the parking lot opens until one hour after kick off.
  • Snow Center / Seneca Creek Meadows / Newspring Church: Shuttle operates from when the parking lots open until one hour post-game.
  • Sikes Hall A.D.A. Shuttle: shuttle operates three hours pregame until one hour post game. The shuttle is limited to the A.D.A. patron and one assistant.

Tiger Transit will not operate for two hours following the end of the game to allow time for traffic to disperse. Call (864) 656-3333 or log on to clemson-new.ridecell.com/request to request a ride.

To travel from parking lots to tailgating parties or other venues, you will need to make your own transportation arrangements.

How To Read Your Ticket & Parking Assignment

All donors who are assigned football season tickets can view their assignments by logging into your account. Donors who have purchased at least 2 full season tickets and have given at the ORANGE ($450) level or above can view their parking assignment by logging into your account.

Once you have logged into your account:

Navigate to the table labeled “My Tickets” and click the link labeled “Order History”. In the “2020 FOOTBALL SEASON” table, click the option “IPTAY PARKING” and navigate to the third table labeled “Ticket Information”.

This information will include your ticket and parking assignments, delivery method and printed date.

For tickets: The first set of letters indicates the ticket assignment location, followed by the row and seat. Please refer to the Memorial Stadium map for ticket locations.

For parking: The first set of letters and/or numbers indicates the parking assignment abbreviation, followed by the parking location and parking type. The numbers following are used by our assignment software program and are not relevant to your assigned parking. Please refer to the examples below and the list of all parking lot abbreviations when reviewing your assignments for this season.

Example 1:  My order history says that my parking assignment is P:STI:3:70,70 . The P indicates that the following is your parking assignment. Since STI is an area lot then the 1:20,20 can be ignored. Your assignment for this season, in this example, is the STI area lot.

Example 2: My order history says that my parking assignment is P:1R:3:321,321 . Again the P indicates that this is your parking assignment. The 1R is the abbreviation for Lot 1; lower intramural field below Fike Fieldhouse. You can ignore the next number “3” (row in the assignment software) and then 321 which is your actual space assignment in this example.

There are several new parking locations, names and abbreviations changes from being an area lot to a numbered parking lot. Please refer to the parking information table for specifics on your assignment. Parking lot maps and space layouts are available in the interactive parking map. Please review the Clemson football parking map for the latest information.

Football Parking Reprint Procedures

If your Clemson Football parking pass is lost, stolen or damaged and you need a replacement please read the following.

Numbered Parking Space

If you are requesting a replacement pass for a numbered space parking pass it can be replaced for $30/pass.  These can then be shipped to your physical address or available for pickup at the IPTAY office between 8am and 4:30pm Monday through Friday. Only the account holder can request a reprint and only the account holder can pick up or have the pass shipped to the address associated with the account.

Area Parking Space

Unlike stadium tickets we do not have the technology in place to scan parking passes. Due to that we are not able to void a parking pass that is lost and reprint another one for the IPTAY account holder. With our area parking lots at capacity, any additional passes reprinted would run the risk of overfilling the lot.  Therefore, IPTAY will not reprint area parking passes. If the pass is damaged in any way and the account holder can provide the damaged pass(es) to IPTAY then the pass(es) can be reprinted for the same $30/pass fee.

Memorial Stadium Policies
