Located on the campus of North Carolina State University, Carter-Finley Stadium is home to the Wolfpack football team. Replacing the former Riddick Stadium that was built in the early 1900s, plans for Carter-Finley Stadium began and were completed in 1966. The arena was originally called Carter Stadium after the brothers Harry C. & Wilbert J. "Nick" Carter who were large donors to the project. It was in 1979 that Albert E. Finley's name was added due to a generous donation. This stadium is located next to the North Carolina State Fairgrounds on 75 acres of university property. The current seating capacity is 57,583. Renovations have been made to the stadium as recently as 2006. Carter-Finley not only hosts home games for the Wolfpack but is a venue for concerts and performances.
