Clemson players will be positioned on the concourse level throughout the stadium. Please note the entrances below as they have changed from the past.
- Enter Gate 1 for the offensive players. There will be a single continuous line that will include all offensive players. Fans will then exit through Gate 13.
- Enter Gate 9 for the defensive players. There will be a single continuous line that will include all defensive players. Fans will then exit through Gate 5.
- Enter Gate 11 for Coach Swinney who will be in the West Endzone. There will be a single continuous line that will include Coach Swinney and the mascots. Fans will then exit back through Gate 11.
- Fans will be permitted to enter the Gate adjacent to the Rock to take photos of the Rock, and must exit back out of that same gate.
Lines will be monitored by event staff and will be cut off at appropriate times. It is important for fans to realize that it is very difficult to get all of their favorite players' autographs in the 2.5-hour limit.
*Due to the large turnout expected, there will be a one autograph per player limit. Fans may take photos of players, but no photos will be permitted with players. This will assist in allowing more fans to meet as many players as possible during the event. Thank you for your help with this policy.
