Colonial Life Arena History

Since it opened in 2002 Colonial Life Arena has been home to the South Carolina Gamecocks men's and women's basketball teams. Playing in the SEC, South Carolina annually plays home games against some of the best college basketball teams in the country like Florida and Kentucky. The arena is managed by Global Spectrum and in 2005 was chosen as the number one arena in the Carolinas as well as the second best university arena in the world. Colonial Life Arena was built as a replacement for Carolina Coliseum which was the previous home of Gamecocks basketball. The arena is the definition of a multipurpose arena and hosts events throughout the year.


Colonial Life Arena Events

In addition to South Carolina Gamecocks basketball, Colonial Life Arena hosts local graduation ceremonies and much more. Disney on Ice, American Idols Live, High School Musical: The Concert, Sesame Street, and the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus have all held events at the arena. Additionally, concerts by some of the biggest acts in the music business have taken place at Colonial Life Arena including Billy Joel, Britney Spears, The Eagles, Kings of Leon, Prince, Pearl Jam, Miley Cyrus, and many more. The arena has also hosted WWE events, NBA preseason games, indoor football, and other sports events.


Columbia, South Carolina

As the capital of South Carolina and its biggest city, Columbia is a city with plenty to offer. If you are in need of a history lesson feel free to check out some of the many museums in the area including the Columbia Museum of Art, the South Carolina State Museum, the Confederate Relic Room and History Museum among them. Theater is also a big part of the cultural life of Columbia and local organizations like Trustus Theatre, Town Theatre, and the Nickelodeon Theater provide top notch performing arts to the area.


Colonial Life Arena Seating Layout

Colonial Life Arena holds 18,000 guests for basketball games while concerts allow seating for 19,000 concert goers. On game days in Columbia Colonial Life Arena fills up quickly so be sure to get there early to find your seat. When the Gamecocks hit the floor the entire arena erupts and the drama, spectacle, and pageantry of college basketball is on full display. South Carolina basketball fans are among the most ravenous in the country and the environment created when thousands of Gamecocks fans gather to support their team the arena is nothing short of electric.


Trivia

One of the main reasons the university chose to build the new arena was to have the ability to host NCAA basketball tournament games. However, after it was built the NCAA issued a statement saying that it would not allow any tournament games to be held in South Carolina because of a Confederate flag being flown near the state capitol which was protested by the NAACP and other groups. Colonial Life Arena is owned by Comcast's Global Spectrum, a group that also owns the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA who played a preseason game at the arena.
