Buc Walk: Charleston Southern will be incorporating a new feature to its game day festivities this year as the team will incorporate a Buc Walk prior to the game. The team, joined by members of the band and cheer team, will walk the length of Academic Drive starting at Jones Hall and ending at the Stadium. Fans are encouraged to meet and greet the team as they prepare for Saturday night's kickoff against Kennesaw State. The walk will start at 3:15 p.m.

Free Student Tailgate: Current students are invited to join the FREE student tailgate located inside the student entrance.  To access the tent students should wear their Blue Crew shirt or present a student ID while wearing Buc Gear. Students who are not members of the Blue Crew can join for free at the marketing table, located behind the band stands.

Game Day Giveaway: In honor of the Presidential Inauguration of CSU's third president Dr. Dondi Costin, students receive a FREE Chick-fil-A sandwich courtesy of our friends at Chick-fil-A on Rivers Avenue. Coupons and commemorative inauguration souvenir cups will be distributed at the end of the first quarter.


Charleston Southern changed its stadium security regulations in 2017 and will limit fans to one clear plastic bag no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches or a one-gallon, clear, resealable plastic storage bag per person.

Fans are also allowed a small clutch purse not to exceed 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches. Wallets must also conform to this size requirement.

No other bags will be allowed inside. All items, including clear bags and clutch purses, are subject to search at the gates. No items can be left or stored at the gates.

Permitted/Prohibited Bags Graphic


Everyone, ages 3 and older, must have a ticket.

To expedite entry into the stadium, we recommend that each individual hold their own ticket to optimize scanning procedures. All tickets will be electronically scanned to verify authenticity. Tickets will be scanned as patrons enter the stadium, and once a ticket has been scanned, it cannot be reused by another guest.

Fans cannot leave the stadium and be readmitted.

Assistance with any ticket problem can be obtained by contacting the Charleston Southern Athletics Ticket Office at (843) 863-7213.

The Athletics Ticket Office is located inside the Buccaneer Field House.

Player/Guest Will Call is also located at the main entrance at the Buccaneer Stadium Center.

If available, game day tickets are on sale at the stadium at least 90 minutes prior to game time and remain on sale through the end of the first half.



Game Day parking for all lots surrounding Buccaneer Field is reserved for pass holders. Donors who have previously requested and paid for parking permits will receive their passes in the mail before the season. Improperly parked vehicles or those found in a restricted area will be towed at the owner's expense.

Parking in the general admission lot is $5 per vehicle on game day.


Unmanned aircraft restrictions will be implemented in accordance with state and federal laws; specifically, drone use is not authorized on or above campus without approval from the FAA.
