Spartanburg High School has never had its own fully functioning stadium and for years has enjoyed a partnership at Wofford College as it relates to its football program only. There are multiple advantages for the high school to have its own stadium. The new stadium would be utilized for football, band, soccer, lacrosse, track, physical education, student assemblies, JROTC drills, physical education, graduations, community events and more.
The new stadium would be located on the high school campus rather than away on the Wofford College campus. Having the stadium at the high school, rather than miles away, will make it easier for the high school to utilize its stadium for a myriad of reasons, as well as make it easier for students to attend events after school. It will also eliminate the need to transport athletes, band members and cheerleaders to home games, to rent and make capital investments in a facility that is not our own and to have greater control in regard to stadium usage and operations.
As Wofford’s own campus and athletic program evolve it is becoming increasingly difficult for the district to enjoy the same degree of partnership that was established decades ago. It is our belief that a new stadium is needed to suit the needs of our athletic program today and for generations to come.
