“There’s something magical about an older sporting stadium. Herein lies a multitude of historical events and memories. For the viewing pleasure of all, the Gamecock Athletics Twitter page has put together a comprehensive look at the evolution of Williams-Brice Stadium.
South Carolina games were initially played on campus prior to the site’s debut in 1934. At that time, it was called Columbia Municipal Stadium, and then eventually renamed Carolina Stadium up until 1972. The facility currently holds upwards of 80,000 people. At its inception, the stadium sat less than 20,000 patrons.”
It’s amazing to see how stadiums grow and evolve over the years. College Vault celebrates the rich history of stadiums where memories and traditions are made. If you love wearing garnet and black, think the Historic Horseshoe is the most beautiful campus, and prefer a Sandstorm on Saturdays, take a look at this video chronicling the special history of Williams-Brice Stadium at the University of South Carolina. Forever to thee.
