CARL SMITH STADIUM

CARL SMITH STADIUM

Carl Smith Stadium was christened in 1999 by a 49-19 victory over West Virginia Tech. Opened with a $25 million gift from University of Virginia alumnus Carl Smith, the campus stadium has since seen several upgrades. Bleachers were added in 2001; the Humphreys-Thomas Field House was built in 2003; Ramseyer Press Box was installed in 2004; and the athletic facility’s original turf was replaced with Astroturf GameDay Grass 3D in 2011. Most recently, Beaty-Richmond field received lacrosse lines in preparation for the school’s newest sport addition.
