South Carolina Athletics has always been expanding in some capacity. Whether it is expanding expectations for success, expanding the areas from where it recruits talent, or expanding facilities and resources to help student-athletes achieve success academically and athletically, South Carolina is not standing still in living up to the commitments made in the Gamecock Student-Athlete Promise. South Carolina Athletics is taking another step forward with the September launch of its “Expanding Our Vision” capital initiative.

“At the heart of this initiative are the construction of the Football Operations Center, the Carolina Coliseum Project, and the Golf Practice Facility,” said Athletics Director Ray Tanner. “These projects not only enhance the student-athlete experience by providing state-of-the-art facilities, but also provide coaches and athletics staff the resources to elevate their respective programs.

Each part of this initiative aims to not only help the Gamecocks achieve athletics success for years to come, but also create efficiency within each program through the centralization of resources available to student-athletes, coaches and staff.

“I think it’s going to be a game-changer for us as far as the student-athletes on our campus presently, but also in the recruiting process. We all like shiny and new. It will be, and we’ve been able to put our hands on it with the architects and get exactly what we want. We’re really excited about that process.”
