COLUMBIA, S.C. — September 14, 2021 — The South Carolina Boating and Fishing Alliance is a proud sponsor of the South Carolina Gamecocks and will showcase some of the nation’s most iconic boats and fishing tackle brands in Gamecock Village prior to the football game against Kentucky on Saturday, September 25, in a first-of-it’s-kind boating and fishing exhibition.

Several boats and numerous promotional tents will be on display beginning at 2:30 pm. Prize packages and membership raffle will be done on site along with numerous family-friendly activities.

“South Carolina’s boating and fishing tackle manufacturers comprise a $5 billion industry that supports 23,000 jobs,” said SCBFA Chairman Chris Butler. “Williams-Brice Stadium on a football Saturday is a terrific opportunity to let fans see the great boats and fishing tackle that are made in South Carolina by South Carolinians.”

Participants include: Abu Garcia, Avenger Boats, Bentley Pontoons, Berkley, Bulls Bay Boats, Falcon Bass Boats, Local Boy Outfitters, Palmetto State Armory — Fishing Outpost, Penn Fishing, Pioneer Boats, Quantum Paints, Safer Boater, Sea Hunt Boats, Sea Pro Boats, Sportsmans Boats, Stingray Boats, Tidewater Boats, Ugly Stik, What the Fin Apparel, and Yamaha Rightwaters.

Bassmaster Classic Champion Davy Hite will be signing autographs at the Yamaha Marine demo trailer. SCBFA will be handing out 200 neck gaiters before the game. 

Kickoff is set for 7 pm and a limited number of tickets are available at GamecocksOnline.com/tickets.
