OPPORTUNITY TO NAME BENEFICIARY

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.

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.

MEDIA GUIDES

Football 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.

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.

 

Points and Ranking

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
  • 10 points for every 10 consecutive years of Gamecock Club Membership
