The University of South Carolina football team will hold three practices next week that will be open to the public.
The squad will practice on Monday, August 15, and Wednesday, August 17, in Williams-Brice Stadium. The team will practice on Tuesday, August 16, at the new practice fields, located next to the Jerri and Steve Spurrier Indoor Practice Facility at the west end of Gamecock Park. All three practices will begin at 6:50 pm following a 20-minute walk-thru.
For the two practices at Williams-Brice Stadium (Monday and Wednesday), fans can park for free in Quad 1 of Gamecock Park (turn at the light by the old Bojangles’ site) and sit in sections 1-9 on the lower west side of the stadium. The parking lot will open at 4:30 pm and Gate 20 at the stadium will open at 6 pm. Bags will be checked at the gate and one concession stand will be open on the west main concourse.
For Tuesday’s session, fans can enter the parking area off National Guard Road beginning at 5 pm and park in the asphalt and premium south areas as directed. Fans will enter the practice fields through the gate at the northwest corner (the side opposite the indoor facility) and will be asked to stay behind the yellow rope at the north end of the fields. Please note that there is limited space available to watch Tuesday’s practice and no concessions will be available.
Those attending the practice sessions will be allowed to photograph (still and/or video) through period 3. No cameras will be allowed after the third period. Players will not be available for autographs before, during or after the practice sessions. Pets are not permitted on the practice fields.
Should inclement weather arise and the team is forced to move to the indoor facility, the practice will be closed.
