Our Clemson Pride Runs Deep

Great teams are born from true passion, as are great fans. It’s no surprise, then, that Clemson’s legendary fan tradition—The Tiger Sports Shop—grew from Coach Ibrahim’s passion for Clemson soccer. In 1974, Coach I.M. Ibrahim invested his savings into a small store downtown, where he sold Adidas shoes. With the help of Ibrahim’s wife, Julie, our little store became one of the most successful licensed clothing and gift shops in the region. We went on to outgrow our location twice before settling into our current building, the historic Clemson Theatre, in 1984. That still wasn’t enough room for our loyal customers, so we opened another location: "The Athletic Department", now also known as The Tiger Sports Shop, which welcomes fans on their way into Clemson.

Coach Ibrahim may have been a Clemson legend, but for his players, fans, and customers, he was always just an email or phone call away. Naturally, he built his family business the same way. When you call our shop with questions, you’ll talk to us, not a help line. Everything we do is personal. National retailers could care less if you buy Clemson stuff today and South Carolina stuff tomorrow. But it’s different in our store, where everything we sell has been hand selected for the fans who share our commitment to Clemson, the community, and giving back to the Clemson University and community.

True Tiger fans aren’t like other fans. We’re a family, bound together by pride, tradition, and an intense love of Clemson orange. We built The Tiger Sports Shop on shared passion, and 4 decades later, our fellow fans are still the reason we exist. Coach I’s philosophy was simple: to provide a superior product at a reasonable price. Although “Coach I” is no longer with us, his indomitable spirit lives on in everything we do. With two locations, a full online shopping experience, and an emphasis on accommodating customer requests, we’re here to serve you. We cheer with you. We trade stories with you. We care about this community as deeply as you do. Together, we’re the orange lifeblood of Clemson.
