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.

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.


Colonial Life Arena Events

Colonial Life Arena is known best for being the home venue of the South Carolina basketball team. The Gamecocks take to the court every season to take on some of the best teams in college hoops, and that will not change this year. The Gamecocks will host some tough teams this season, such as the Florida Gators. The Gators are routinely in contention for the top spot in the SEC, and a win against them would be huge for the Gamecocks. The Gamecocks will take on other top programs, such as LSU and Kentucky.
