All donors who pledge at the Purple level and above and complete 50% of that pledge by March 15 will receive the online 2021 football season ticket and parking application. Donors will be notified by the ticket office via email in early spring when their application is available in their online account.
The remaining balance on all IPTAY 2021 pledges are due by June 1, 2021. If the pledge is not fulfilled by this date, the IPTAY and ticket offices will hold your football tickets and parking passes.
IPTAY, the fundraising arm for Clemson Athletics since 1934, is classified as an independent non-profit charitable organization. Being a 501c3 non-profit organization, all gifts to IPTAY are non-refundable donations.
While we hope and expect to have 100% capacity at Memorial Stadium this fall, please know our team will continue to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If capacity is affected for the 2021 football season due to the pandemic, further information regarding IPTAY 2021 donations will be communicated at that time.
Yes, a donor can request the same parking space assigned in 2019. Please be aware though that simply requesting that space does not guarantee a donor will receive that parking assignment for the upcoming 2021 season. Parking is reassigned annually first by annual IPTAY giving level and then by IPTAY Priority Points within that level.
By submitting three choices that gives our IPTAY Parking Committee the ability to assign the donor to a preferred location if their top choice is not available at the time of assignment.
No, parking is reassigned annually, first by annual IPTAY giving level and then by IPTAY Priority Points within that level.
New and additional season tickets requested are assigned first by annual IPTAY giving level and then by IPTAY Priority Points within that level. The maximum number of season tickets an IPTAY donor is eligible to purchase each season is determined by IPTAY annual giving levels.
Unlike parking, football season tickets are not reassigned annually. Once season tickets are assigned, the donor can request those exact seats going forward as long as all posted deadlines and required donations are met. If a donor chooses not to renew, those seats will be made available to new donors or current donors requesting new or additional season tickets.
Clemson joined other top-20 Football Bowl Subdivisions attendance leaders by adding a preferred seating component to the annual giving program. All season tickets in Memorial Stadium available for purchase require a per-seat donation. The current per-seat donations 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 multiply 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 the current per-seat donations implemented in the IPTAY 2017 year.
Please note meeting the per-seat donation does not guarantee assignment in the location.
