The University Of South Carolina Is Now Selling Football Tickets… Through Costco?

I don’t know if this is genius, or if I’ve entered the twilight zone.

Most of us have all printed off tickets, scalped ’em outside of stadiums, or bought them online for football games.

Of course, if your favorite college or NFL team is really good, it feels like you have to just about sell your soul away in order to get tickets (if you aren’t a season ticket holder that is).

However, I can honestly never say I’ve seen a move like this before…

Football tickets for the University of South Carolina Gamecocks have been popping up at Costco’s, literally on the shelves.

Maybe I’m just a traditionalist, and it’s hard for me to wrap my mind around buying tickets to a college football game at a supermarket (or that I’m a Clemson fan, the in-state rival to USC Jr.), but this just feels incredibly obscure to me.

Imagine sitting at home and you ask your wife or husband what they got at the grocery store, and they respond:

“Eggs, milk, beer, and South Carolina football tickets.”


However, according to Outkick, this isn’t the first time a college team has made a move like this this year, as Louisville also began to start selling tickets at Costcos in July.

Nevertheless, I guess this is a great opportunity to get rid of excess tickets that haven’t been sold yet, and an opportunity to fill up stadiums along with another outlet to sell through.

Of course, the Clemson fan in me wants to say South Carolina is this desperate to sell tickets because they haven’t been relevant in almost a decade, even with their new savior quarterback Spencer Rattler transferring from Oklahoma to the school. But hey, that’s just me.

Gamecock Country… let’s cock… I mean, let’s ride… to Costco…
