The College of Charleston Department of Athletics has announced that the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the initial phase of its multimillion-dollar improvement plans to the Patriots Point Athletics Complex on Tuesday, April 5, 2022. The approval sparks the launch of the capital project, which has already received more than $1.8 million in funding from private donations. The initial phase includes a brand-new turf field, new stadium lights and a new video board to replace the existing one. The first phase is an estimated $2.5 million initiative. The entire Patriots Point project, designed in coordination with McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture firm, also includes new locker rooms, team rooms and video rooms with cutting-edge training technology, a hydrotherapy training area, outdoor patio and club areas for donors and new coaches’ offices, among other improvements and additions. With the unanimous greenlight from the Board of Trustees and the momentum of donations from CofC’s generous donors, the project will break ground with the initial phase in the coming months. By project’s end, the baseball stadium’s capacity will swell by more than 3,000 seats and the existing roof will be extended to cover the new seating area. All persons interested in donating to the project or learning more about the initiative are encouraged to contact the Charleston Athletic Fund by phone at 843.953.8255 or by email at athleticfund@cofc.edu.
