UC Stadium at Laidley Field

The University of Charleston Stadium at Laidley Field is an 18,500-capacity stadium located in downtown Charleston, near the State Capitol Complex. For years the venue has been host of multiple events and football games for teams around the area. The stadium is owned by Kanawha County Schools, however in 2003, because the school board lacked funds to maintain the stadium, it entered into a joint project with the private University of Charleston. UC invested over $1.5 million to replace the turf, add locker rooms and a skybox, and make other improvements in exchange for access and naming rights. Today, the stadium is home to the University of Charleston Golden Eagles, Capital High School football, and multiple middle school and community teams also play at UC Stadium. The field has also held multiple high school playoff games as well as being host to the State Championships “Super Six” before its move to Wheeling in the 1990s. The stadium is the central location for the state high school track and field championships every May as well. There is also public access to the track on weekdays.

University of Charleston Stadium at Laidley Field is obviously the center of most football and track events in the state. Given this, you may find yourself coming in to Charleston to catch a glimpse of all the action. The Holiday Inn is here to give you a clean, comfortable place to stay while away from home.
