GREENVILLE, SC – When the Greenville Road Warriors host the Gwinnett Gladiators on Friday, January 13, 2012 they will look more like Tigers than Road Warriors as they will wear special Clemson University-themed jerseys.
Clemson University is a pillar of the Upstate, South Carolina community, and the success of Clemson’s football team this fall is something that should be celebrated. In that spirit the Road Warriors will wear the Tigers’ orange and purple for one night only,” said Road Warriors president and general manager Neil Smith.
The special Clemson-themed jerseys are modeled after the Road Warriors’ standard jerseys, except that it is a solid orange with purple trim on the elbows, wrists and waistline, and features the Clemson Tiger paw as a patch on each shoulder. The Road Warriors will also wear orange socks with purple trim to match the jerseys.
Immediately following the game against Gwinnett, there will be a live jersey auction at which fans can bid on their favorite player’s jersey. The winning bidders will get to take the jersey home with them that night, have a chance to meet the player whose jersey they win, and get it autographed. A portion of the proceeds from the jersey auction will be donated to charity.
Fans can save on their tickets to that night’s game by purchasing the Spinx Family Four Pack which features four tickets, four hot dogs, four soft drinks, and four bags of chips for just $48! Fans can also save off the box office price and get preferred seating based on availability by booking a group outing. Group pricing is available to any group of 10 or more.
