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…
