Located in the heart of the South Carolina campus is the home field of the Gamecocks, Eugene E. Stone III Stadium, also known as "The Graveyard". South Carolina has won 26 of its last 30 matches at Stone Stadium, highlighted by a 15-match unbeaten streak that spanned from the 2006 to the 2007 season.
The stadium, which debuted in 1996, was made possible by the $1 million gift given by the late Eugene E. Stone III. Stone, who passed away in 1997, was a Carolina graduate and Chairman of Stone Manufacturing Co. Inc., the parent company of UMBRO International.
In 2009 Stone stadium recieved a $500,000 update. The drainage system was fully reconstucted and is now able to with stand 10-12 inches of rain in an hour without creating puddles. A new playing surface was added and provides our players with a true 75yd by 120yd field.
Stone Stadium seats 4,500 people with standing room for an additional 1,500 fans. It is equipped with a 70' by 8' press box with a camera deck on top. A state-of-the-art scoreboard was added to the facility before the start of the 2008, providing video capabilities in addition to fan-friendly features.
The facility includes two team rooms, an officials' dressing room, a concession stand for the fans and restrooms for both men and women on each side of the stadium. Also nicknamed "The Graveyard" because of its close proximity to the House of Peace cemetery, the area has proven to be a "graveyard" for opponents over the years.
Stone stadium lead all NCAA Tournament host sites with the highest attendance for the first three rounds of the NCAA Tournament in 2009. The Round of 16 game verses Wake Forest had the highest women's soccer crowed reaching over 4,300 people.
