GAMECOCK CLUB PUBLICATION – Spurs and Feathers

All Gamecock Club members receive a periodic publication highlighting events and recruiting news from all Gamecock sports. To receive the physical publication, members must opt in through Spurs and Feathers (as of July 2015.) SpursandFeathers.com

MEMBERSHIP CARDS

Gamecock Club membership cards grant admission to events open exclusively to Gamecock Club members. In addition, members at the Half Scholarship level and above may access the Scholarship Lounges at Williams-Brice Stadium during pregame (30 minutes prior) and halftime and use the Williams-Brice Stadium elevators.

OPPORTUNITY TO NAME BENEFICIARY

Golden Spur members and above have the option to name a beneficiary for their Gamecock Club membership. The recipient is entitled to the benefits of the membership without losing priority points or ticket privileges as long as he or she maintains the same giving level. The named beneficiary must be a relative within one generation of the original donor. No corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, etc. may be named a beneficiary. All membership levels pass to the member’s spouse as long as the spouse continues at the same level or increases his or her level of giving.

SCHOLARSHIP LOUNGES AT WILLIAMS-BRICE STADIUM

Members at the Half Scholarship level and above may present their Gamecock Club membership cards to access the East and West Scholarship Lounges at Williams-Brice Stadium beginning 30 minutes before kickoff and during halftime. Members at these giving levels may also purchase tickets for the catered buffets in the lounges, allowing them access when stadium gates open. Buffet ticket information is mailed to eligible members prior to each football season.

THE MCGUIRE CLUB AT COLONIAL LIFE ARENA

The McGuire Club opens one hour before tipoff for men’s basketball non-conference games and 1 1/2 hours before tipoff for men’s basketball SEC games. A buffet is served when the club opens and is available until tipoff. Pass holders also have access to a cash bar. Light snacks are served during halftime. McGuire Club access is available exclusively to season ticket holders at the Golden Spur, Platinum Spur, and Diamond Spur levels, as well as Founders Club season ticket holders.

ELEVATOR ACCESS AT WILLIAMS-BRICE STADIUM

Members at the Half Scholarship level and above may access specific elevators at Williams-Brice Stadium by presenting a current membership card.

GAMECOCK CLUB CALENDARS

Wall calendars featuring South Carolina team schedules, student-athletes, and athletics facilities are mailed in late November to Gamecock Club members at the Century level and above.

MEDIA GUIDES

Football and Men’s Basketball media guides are mailed to members at the Full Scholarship level and above each season. The Gamecock Club may not re-issue free media guides. If a member does not receive or misplaces a media guide and wishes to obtain a new copy, the member must purchase a replacement from the South Carolina Athletics Ticket Office.

PREMIUM SEATING

Silver Spur members and above are eligible to purchase premium seating for football, basketball, and baseball. The option to purchase premium seating is based on availability.

SIGNING DAY SOUTH CAROLINA

Garnet Spur members and above will receive a personal invitation to the annual Signing Day South Carolina.

In an effort to equitably serve Gamecock Club members, a priority point system was developed to determine rankings for season ticket assignments, away and postseason game ticket distribution, parking pass assignments, and other special events. The current system was voted on and approved by the Gamecock Club Board of Directors on November 3, 2006. (Amended January 24, 2014)

Gamecock Club members accumulate points for the following:

  • One point for every $100 donated to the Department of Athletics
  • One point for each season ticket purchased for football, baseball, and men’s and women’s basketball
  • Two points for each consecutive year a donation is made to the Gamecock Club

For the assignment of season tickets, Gamecock Club members are ranked by membership level first and then by points within each specified level. The table below provides season ticket rankings as of June 6,2016.
