Colonial Center Arena

An exciting era in the history of the University of South Carolina and the athletics department opened in November, 2002, with the unveiling of Colonial Life Arena, a life insurance company, (originally The Colonial Center - it was renamed in July 2008). The South Carolina women's team, coming off the best season in school history, christened the building with a Nov. 22 matchup against arch-rival Clemson, while the men opened 2002-03 action on Nov. 24 against East Tennessee State.

Colonial Life Arena, with a seating capacity of nearly 18,000 for basketball and 19,000 for other events, is the crown jewel of USC, Columbia, the Midlands and the entire state of South Carolina. Not only is The Colonial Center the largest arena in the state, it opened as the 10th-largest on-campus basketball facility in the nation and the fourth-largest in the Southeastern Conference.
