Brooks Stadium

Brooks Stadium is a 6,408-seat multi-purpose stadium in Conway, South Carolina. It is home to the Coastal Carolina University Chanticleers football team. The facility opened in 2003 and is named in honor of Coby Garrett Brooks and Boni Belle Brooks, children of the late Robert "Bob" Brooks [ [http://www.coastal.edu/news/print.php?id=679 Football stadium at Coastal to be named for Brooks] ] . Brooks was a Loris, South Carolina native and was the chairman of Hooters of America, Inc. On October 7, 2006, the field was named James C. Benton Field to honor the family for a large donation they made to the Coastal athletics program earlier in the year.

The stadium was designed to be expandable to seat nearly 20,000. A new field house is expected to be constructed behind the north endzone with construction set to begin early in 2007. It is estimated to take 18 months to build; however, an additional 2,100 seats will be installed in front of where the field house will sit before the start of the 2007 season, taking the capacity to approximately 8,500. The facility also houses the George F. "Buddy" Sasser Hall of Fame, featuring notable Coastal athletes from throughout Coastal's history.

The stadium saw its first action on September 6, 2003, as the Chanticleer football team opens its inaugural game vs. Newberry College in front of a crowd of more than 8,000.
