USC revenue up despite fewer ticket sales

COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina's athletic department expects an increase in revenue from its seat-donation program despite a drop in football ticket sales and booster club funds.

Athletic director Eric Hyman told a committee of the board of trustees Thursday the school's seat fee plan has raised $6.3 million, higher than the $4 million projected. Those funds will offset an expected loss in football season-ticket revenue of $1.8 million and nearly $1 million in Gamecock Club donations.

Hyman says the Gamecocks have sold about 49,000 season tickets for football, down from their cap of 56,000.
