South Carolina Athletics once again honors educators for their hard work during an extremely difficult year. South Carolina participates in the College Football Playoff Foundation’s Extra Yard for Teachers Week (September 10-18) with the promotion of Gamecock Football Teachers Appreciation Day at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday October 16, when the Gamecocks welcome the Vanderbilt Commodores.

The goal of Extra Yard for Teachers Week is to elevate the profession of education by inspiring and empowering teachers using the high profile of college football. The College Football Foundation aims to address the challenges educators face by assisting them with resources, recognition, recruitment and professional development.

South Carolina Athletics will once again partner with UofSC College of Education and the South Carolina Department of Education to host Teacher Appreciation Day at Williams-Brice Stadium. All teachers, school staff and their families have access to a special discount on tickets and will be honored in various ways throughout match day.

The COVID-19 pandemic prevented Teachers’ Appreciation Day from taking place last year, but this is the sixth time since 2015 that South Carolina has hosted the event. Tickets are just $ 30 each, a $ 20 discount, and educators don’t need to be Gamecock Club members to take advantage of the special rate. In addition to the award, the South Carolina District Teacher of the Year will be recognized on the field and with a special presentation on the video panel inside Williams-Brice Stadium.

“We look forward to recognizing the teachers for their hard work and dedication during the football game in October,” said Blake woodward, director of ticket sales. “They have faced many challenges over the past 18 months and continue to be a crucial part of our communities. The teachers deserve a day of appreciation at Williams-Brice Stadium.”

Educators can purchase as many tickets as needed at the reduced rate to enjoy the game with their family and friends. They can also take advantage of the option on the ticketing website to secure seats with friends and acquaintances through a personalized link which is provided during their payment and can be shared with friends. This allows them to sit together while paying separately!

While Gamecock Football Teacher Appreciation Day ticket sales are aimed at educators in South Carolina, teachers and school staff in neighboring states who wish to visit Williams-Brice Stadium can also take advantage of the discount.
