Tickets for the South Carolina football team's season-opening game Sept. 3 against East Carolina will go on sale today at 10 a.m. There is a four-ticket purchase limit for the game, which will be played in Charlotte at Bank of America Stadium. The kickoff time has not been determined.
Tickets are $60 each and may be purchased online at GamecocksOnline.com or by calling the South Carolina ticket office at (800) 472-3267. Tickets sold to the general public are located in the South Carolina section but are assigned from a different allotment than those sold to Gamecock Club members. July 1 is the deadline for Gamecock Club members to order away tickets and have their seats assigned by priority points. Orders received after the deadline will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
