Garnet & Black Spring Game Moved to Noon
March 27, 2017
The University of South Carolina football team will wrap up its spring drills on Saturday, April 1, with the annual Garnet & Black Spring Game. The game has been moved to a noon start to accommodate Gamecock fans wishing to watch both the spring game and the Carolina men’s basketball team in the Final Four.
Admission is free for the noon contest at Williams-Brice Stadium.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the new football operations center and the lettermen’s flag football game have been postponed.
Parking for the Garnet & Black spring game will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Key Road lot will open at 8 am and is free to the public. The Fairgrounds lots (entrance through Gate 6 only) and Gamecock Park will open at 8 am, with spots available for $10 per vehicle. Fans should be advised that, as construction continues along Bluff Road, reduced lanes are in effect from National Guard Road to Rosewood and Fairgrounds Gate 10 off Bluff Road will not be opened.
The Williams-Brice Stadium gates will open at 10:30 am. Fans are asked to sit in the lower bowl of the stadium. The clear bag policy will be enforced for the game.
The 2017 spring game football schedule posters will be available in Gamecock Village, which will open at 8 am. Fans are allowed up to five posters per person while supplies last. Lettermen will once again be selling the official spring game program for $5.
The game will be broadcast live on SEC Network with Taylor Zarzour and Greg McElroy in the booth and Peter Burns working the sidelines. 107.5 The Game, the flagship radio station of Gamecock Athletics, will also have gameday coverage.
