As the University of South Carolina and Clemson University prepare for Saturday's rivalry game, officials from both universities, along with the Collegiate Licensing Company, are making sure there counterfeit and unlicensed merchandise is not sold in the Clemson area.

Potential counterfeiters could try to capitalize on the excitement surrounding game and take advantage of fans, via game tickets or merchandise. 

CLC is the exclusive licensing agent for both South Carolina and Clemson. The company will work closely with the Clemson University Police Department to patrol the marketplace in search of counterfeiters selling “knock-off” merchandise. All counterfeit merchandise is subject to seizure.

Officially licensed South Carolina or Clemson merchandise:

  • All officially licensed merchandise should display the “Officially Licensed Collegiate Product” hologram somewhere on the product or hangtag.
  • The merchandise should depict South Carolina or Clemson logos and marks in a tasteful manner, as Clemson and South Carolina do not approve distasteful designs.
  • The tag on the garment should be intact. A torn or missing tag is evidence of a second-hand garment, one that probably would not meet the stringent quality standards in place by South Carolina and Clemson.
  • All merchandise should bear the name of the manufacturer somewhere on the product, either in the form of a hangtag, a neck label, or screen-printed directly on the garment.
  • All merchandise should have the appropriate trademark designations (i.e. TM) next to a specific name or design.
Make sure you buy your tickets from the university or a reputable seller. Do not buy tickets sold on the street. 

Both South Carolina and Clemson continually rank among CLC's top-selling institutions on an annual basis.
