  • What's New in '22 Toggle content

    Stadium LED lights
    The traditional stadium lights have been upgraded to LED fixtures that not only will allow for dramatic lighting effects, but are also significantly more energy efficient. Night games will provide opportunities for more robust light shows that will significantly enhance the fan experience.

    Note: If you are sensitive to flashing lights, note the following times/events on when to expect them … from the 5:20 remaining mark on the pregame clock to kickoff, the last 2 minutes of halftime, between the 3rd and 4th quarters, and following Gamecock scores throughout the subsequent timeout.

    Ribbon boards
    Brand new ribbon boards have been affixed to the facia on the east and west sides as well as both surfaces on the south side. The new digital signage will not only infuse energy into gameday, but will also display key game information such as game stats and notes.

    Distributed sound system
    The old speaker cluster in the north end zone has been replaced by a distributed audio system that will provide much clearer audio as well as the elimination of delayed sound. 2001 and Sandstorm will never sound better!

    Signage
    Due to the addition of the ribbon boards, the championship signage will now be on the Floyd Building in the north endzone. Also in the north endzone will be the Cockpit banner recognizing the best student section in the country. Finally, the retired jersey recognitions have been moved to the pressbox with the addition of Jadeveon Clowney’s name and number.

    West Main Beer garden
    An additional 5,000 square feet of concourse was added to the exterior of the West Main concourse to alleviate congestion. Gamecock fans looking for a little shade and fresh air should consider visiting the new beer garden during or before the game.

    New mobile app
    Be sure to download or update your official South Carolina Gamecocks mobile app. Updates have been mode to the mobile ticketing experience as well as a new “Gameday Mode” to facilitate a better fan experience inside Williams-Brice Stadium.
