General FAQs

Are tickets available for purchase on gamedays?

If there are any remaining to be sold, the Brooks Stadium/Benton Field Ticket Office, located at the southeast side of the stadium, will be open for gameday sales 4 hours prior to kickoff. Cash, Visa and MasterCard are acceptable methods of payment.

Can I re-enter the stadium if I leave before the end of the game?

Re-entry is not allowed.


Where can I find up-to-date parking and traffic information on gameday?

Any urgent parking and traffic information that needs to be addressed on a gameday will be communicated through www.GoCCUSports.com. Any changes or updates made during the week leading up to a game will be posted on the game notes page for that particular football game. Parking and traffic procedures are not likely to change during the year, but it's always best to check that site before coming to the stadium.

Where can I set up my tailgate within a parking lot?

To ensure everyone has equal space and that plenty of space is available for gameday use, fans are limited to one space for one car. Tailgates may be set up at your vehicle provided they do not block access for vehicular traffic passing through the lots.

What do I do if I forgot my C.A.F. Club parking tag?

You will need to find a new place to park. Suggested location is HGTC.

The best thing to do is leave your hang tag in your car after each game to avoid misplacing such a precious commodity. There will be no lists and no access for those who forget their pass.

Can I purchase a single gameday parking pass?

There are no single gameday parking passes available for purchase. TEAL, BRONZE and WHITE passes are for C.A.F. members only.

What are the rules regarding alcohol consumption at tailgates?

Rules for the consumption of alcoholic beverages parking lots designated for such activity are consistent with South Carolina State law and City of Conway law.


Those that choose to consume alcohol must be able to present a valid driver's license or photo ID to reflect their age upon request. Spirituous liquor, kegs, common containers, and glass containers are not permitted in any location. Consumption of alcoholic beverages in designated lots may begin no earlier than 4 hours prior to kickoff.

To summarize in simple terms, if you follow the rules and consume alcohol responsibly, and in the proper areas, you will not have a problem. Some tailgates will have alcohol and some will choose not to participate in those activities. Acting maturely and responsibly will ensure all patrons are able to enjoy their gameday experience in the proper manner.

Are there places I can take my trash on gamedays?


In order to make things easy for trash collection on gamedays, dumpsters and garbage bins have been placed in high-traffic tailgate areas for easy clean-up. Look for the folks in the Green shirts, they're on golf carts around campus passing out trash bags in various parking lots throughout the day. If you can recycle, please do, your kids will thank you.

The Facilities and Grounds Crew at CCU do an amazing job of keeping the campus beautiful; please don't create extra work for them. Take pride in their work, walk the extra 20 feet and throw your trash away.
