The home of Charleston Southern Football since the program started play in 1991, Buccaneer Field added an exciting new addition for 2014 – lights. CSU debuted the lights for the spring game and opened up the 2014 season with the first night game in school history.
CSU will have a new playing surface to call its own in 2015, thanks to the installation of state-of-the-art field turf. The design will feature CSU's athletic logo at midfield and a navy background in the end zones with "BUCS" in large, white lettering. The addition of turf is one of two major projects slated for Buccaneer Field and the stadium area. The addition of "Buccaneer Plaza" was completed in the summer of 2015, and added a new entryway, wrought-iron fencing, ticket booths, and landscaping to the front of Buccaneer Field.
Buccaneer Field played host to perhaps the biggest win in program history in 2013, when an overflow crowd of more than 6,000 fans watched the Bucs knock off then-No. 3 and undefeated Coastal Carolina. CSU went 4-1 at home that year as part of a single-season program record 10-win campaign.
In 2005, a crowd of almost 4,000 witnessed CSU stage a dramatic comeback to defeat Coastal in overtime and grab a share of the Big South Conference title for the first time ever.
Charleston Southern’s men’s and women’s track and field teams also call the facility home, as their track surrounds the football playing field.
The facility played host to the 2010 Big South Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Championships in 2010.
It has also been the practicing ground for all of CSU’s top performers over the years, including All-Americans Dionne Gibson, Gabby Houston, Javon Young and Braxton Drummond.
