2022-23 Women's Basketball Season Ticket Pricing Released

For just the third time in the most successful era of South Carolina women’s basketball, the Athletics Department announced today that season ticket prices will change for the 2022-23 season. Changes reflect the increased quality of the program and bringing prices in line with other comparably successful programs across the country.

“Coach Staley has lifted her program to unprecedented heights both in the team she puts on the court and in the fan base she has built,” said USC Athletics Director Ray Tanner. “We have resisted changing that formula for ticket prices for many years, but it is time to reflect the value of what the fans are coming to see each night at Colonial Life Arena.”

Since hiring Staley in May 2008, the Athletics Department has raised ticket prices just twice before with incremental changes both times. The most significant change came prior to the 2018-19 season, which added a seat donation requirement for courtside and premier seats.

In her 14 seasons at South Carolina, Staley has lifted the program to national prominence with six SEC championships, three NCAA Final Four appearances, the 2017 National Championships and 44 weeks ranked No. 1 in the country, which ranks sixth among all programs in the history of the poll. Since first making the NCAA Tournament in 2011-12, Staley’s Gamecocks have been especially impressive at home with a 145-14 record for a .912 winning percentage. In that time, the team is 37-14 (.725) against top-25 foes in Colonial Life Arena.

With that resume, Gamecock women’s basketball tickets have been underpriced compared to many other nationally prominent programs. South Carolina’s current lower level tickets cost $70 with a seat donation that ranges from $400 for courtside/floor seating to $200 for premier seating. By comparison, in 2021-22, lower level tickets at other nationally ranked programs such as Stanford, LSU, Tennessee, Arizona, Louisville and Baylor ranged from $115 to $400. On the secondary market, Gamecock women’s basketball tickets have sold for up to six times their face value.

In addition to the existing courtside and premier seating locations, lower level reserved seating will be divided into two areas – Lower 1 (sections 104-106, 113-15) and Lower 2 (sections 101-103, 107-109, 112, 116-118) – at different price points. Upper level reserved seats are being added as well.

Current general admission season ticket holders will see their prices rise from $45 to $55 for the 2022-23 season, which, at the new price, is still less than $4 per game in a typical 15-game home season. Upper level reserved seats will be $85. In the lower level, seats along the baselines will increase from $70 to $100 for the season with the remaining lower level sections available at $200 per seat. The most significant increases will be in the premier ($325), floor seating ($565) and Lower 1 ($200) areas.

Season ticket holders on the 10-Month payment plan option will see the new pricing reflected on their first payment, which is scheduled for April 15, 2022. All other Gamecock Women’s Basketball season ticket holders will have invoices loaded to their accounts in July.
