Clemson Memorial Stadium History
It was constructed way back in 1942, and undergone several renovations since. A defining feature of the stadium is Howard’s Rock. It was given to head coach Frank Howard by a friend, from the actual Death Valley in California. After sitting in the coach’s office for a few years, it ended up on a pedestal at the top of the east endzone hill where the players run into Memorial Stadium. That was in 1967 and has been tradition ever since.

Clemson Memorial Stadium Section Breakdown
The sections at Clemson Memorial are lettered, with either a U (upper) or TD (top deck) declaring the level the tickets are in. The lower level seats are simply lettered. The sections adjacent to The Hill are the only double lettered section (AA & KK).
The vast majority of seats are bleacher seating, meaning no chair backs. The only designated sections with chair backs are the West Zone Club and covered seats. You may find chair backs in other sections, but that is because long time season ticket holders will have chairbacks fastened to their seat number.
Clemson Tigers Student Sections
The students at Clemson University are allotted 11,000 tickets. The tickets they are given are location in section A-B, AA and KK in all levels (both U and TD). The Hill is also student section. All these sections are general admission, meaning your location is determined on a first come, first serve basis.
Student tickets are generally unavailable on the secondary market, as student ID’s are typically required to gain entry into the sections.
Clemson Tigers Club Sections
The club sections for the Clemson Tigers are located in the only numbered sections in the West End zone, sections 101-114. They run rows A-G and the seats have chair backs.
The features and amenities include access to an indoor/outdoor lounge with 25 plasma TVs, complimentary pre-game buffet and complimentary appetizers during halftime. The outdoor seating is covered so you’re protected in the case of rain.

Clemson Memorial Stadium Seat Numbers
The seat numbers for Clemson football are a bit different than your typical college football stadium. The entrance to each section is located in the center of it. Aisle seats are marked by seats 1 or 2 on each side. The seat numbers that follow are odd or even depending on the starting number. Here is a visual for a better understanding.
Clemson Tigers Parking & Tailgating
Here is the best resource on the parking at Clemson Memorial Stadium.
“It’ll be dependent on a couple of factors, but the most important factor is kickoff time. If kickoff is at noon or 1:00, then what I would suggest is taking SC 93 from the US 123 split in Easley and taking it all the way to Clemson. If kickoff is later in the day or at night, then stick with US 123. I would try to be in Clemson at least two hours before kickoff, three preferably.
As for tailgate spots… I’m assuming you’re not an IPTAY member, so you will have to park a bit further away from the stadium than those who are. I typically park on the roads leading to the Hendrix Student Center, on the east side of campus. Another good spot is near the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts. Clemson fans generally are friendly enough to invite visitors to tailgate spots, so finding places to meet folks and eat is always quick and easy.
Linked here is a link that shows game day traffic flows (reverse lane) and parking areas. Be sure you aren’t parked in an IPTAY area, as your car will be towed away.
Enjoy the game. Go Tigers!”
