The previous record was 57,625 season tickets for the 1988 football season. The previous high in the Tommy Bowden era was 57,506 for the 2001 season.
In addition to the season ticket totals, Clemson Senior
Associate Athletic Director Bill D'Andrea announced that the IPTAY
Annual Fund had reached a record total, thanks in part to the
participation of a record number of donors. The IPTAY Annual Fund
surpassed $15 million for the first time and the donor total
exceeded 16,000. The donor total does not include members of the
Tiger Cub Club.
D'Andrea also confirmed that the goal of raising $27 million
for Phase I of the WestZone Capital Campaign had been reached.
"We are certainly proud of the support we have seen from our
loyal IPTAY donors," said D'Andrea. "It has been an extraordinary
year. We are very excited to reach our goal for Phase I of the
WestZone Initiative, and now we are in the process of moving on to
our goals for Phase II.
"Phase II is very important because it will allow our football
operation to move to Death Valley to a new facility. It will
thereby allow more office space, locker room space and strength
training for our Olympic Sports programs as well, so the project
benefits the entire department.
"We are excited about the coming football season and
obviously so are our fans. To reach a season ticket record with a
schedule that has seven home games and does not include South
Carolina speaks volumes to the level of support for this program.
