The South Carolina Athletic Department announced Tuesday their intentions to spruce up Williams-Brice Stadium with $21 million of improvements approved by the school’s Board of Trustees.
One of the main tasks ahead will be the re-purposing of the Floyd Building, which South Carolina coaches will vacate this Winter following the completion of the Long Family Football Operations Building. The proposed plans will turn the Floyd Building into an air-conditioned gameday lounge for fans to view the game through windows with beverages and concessions available for purchase.
South Carolina will also look to turn the Crews Building into a recruiting lounge, and institute a new 152-seat Loge section in the southwest corner of the stadium. Part of this section will be the newly instituted “2001 Club”, where fans with loge access and recruits will get a front-row seat for the player’s entrance to the field at the beginnings of games.
The money spent will also go to refurbishing Williams-Brice Stadium’s existing luxury areas, including the West and East Club Level Seating as well as the South Zone.
USC Athletics believes the proposed plans, pending approval of state funding, should be completed in time for the 2020 football season.
