High Demand Expected For 2017 Football Season
Release: February 27, 2017
The IPTAY 2017 year is off to a great start and with the February 15th 50% deadline now passed, it is important to thank all of our new donors as well as all of the longtime donors that have renewed so far for the 2017 year! It is exciting to have so many on the IPTAY team as there is no better way to show your support of the Clemson Tigers, than by being a member of IPTAY.
Last year, in IPTAY 2016, more than 16,000 contributed to the IPTAY Annual Fund totaling a record of $29.1M in donations. Those dollars allow IPTAY to provide the critical funding needed for student-athlete scholarships, academic support for student-athletes through the Nieri Family Student-Athlete Enrichment Center, strength & conditioning, the Tiger Band, facilities and IPTAY operational costs.
Many IPTAY members donate for the opportunity to receive parking and ticket priority for Clemson Football. If you are an IPTAY member interested in football priority for the upcoming season, please be aware that the Clemson Athletic Ticket Office sold out of football season tickets in 2016, selling the more than 58,000 available. Combine that with winning the 2016 National Championship, and it is expected that football season ticket demand will be even greater in 2017.
In early March, the 2017 online football ticket application will be made available to all IPTAY 2017 donors in their online account. There will not be any hard copy applications sent via mail this year. At that time IPTAY donors will be able to make any ticket and parking requests you may have for the upcoming season. Please be reminded that all new ticket and parking requests are reviewed and assigned by IPTAY Level and Priority Points within each level with any seats that become available after the ticket renewal process has been completed. In addition, there will be seven-game non-renewable season tickets available for sale, as well as six-game packages.
As a non-profit 501©3 organization it is important to note that IPTAY is unable to provide any refunds on donations made to IPTAY. It is important to remember that all donations will contribute towards a donor’s cumulative giving, which will benefit their priority for athletic events both on and off campus.
We are very grateful for all that our IPTAY donors do to support our Clemson Tigers as the generosity shown is a difference maker and allows Clemson student-athletes the opportunity to be successful in athletic competition, the classroom, and in life. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office and someone on the IPTAY team will be happy to assist you. The IPTAY Center is open Monday-Friday 8:00 A.M. – 4:30 P.M. and is located adjacent to the Winkopp Gate (Gate 9) of Memorial Stadium.
