South Carolina Athletics announced on Thursday that approximately 9,000 fans will be allowed to attend the annual Garnet and Black Spring Game on Saturday, April 24 at 2 p.m. that will be televised on SEC Network+.
Gamecock Club members will have the first access to tickets from Thursday until March 29. Tickets will be free for Gamecock Club members.
Tickets will be available to the general public starting on March 29 at 10 a.m. for $5 a ticket.
According to the release, students that are eligible to attend will receive an email from the Department of Student Life.
Seats in the lower and club levels of the stadium will be general admission and available on a first come first serve basis. Seats will be available in pods of five socially distant seats per CDC guidelines, according to the press release.
Face coverings will be required to wear for entry, and should be worn over the nose and mouth unless attendees are actively eating or drinking.
"The information that we have received about the pandemic shows a promising trend if we remain vigilant," athletics director Ray Tanner said in the press release. "Following these guidelines for the spring game will help us get to the fall season, where we hope to have a full stadium for Coach Beamer's first season."
The release asked that fans "do their part by conscientiously practicing physical/social distancing, frequently washing hands, using hand sanitizer and wearing face coverings to ensure the safest possible environment."
Parking will be available in the State Fairgrounds for $10 per car, while parking in Gamecock Park will not be available due to the COVID-19 vaccination cite. Gates to the Fairgrounds will open an hour before game time.
Concessions and Clear Bag Policy guidelines will be business as usual.
