With a second season only a few months away, Greenville FC makes major announcement for Greenville soccer fans
Greenville Football Club (Greenville FC) today announced that Sirrine Stadium in Downtown Greenville, South Carolina will be the new home for the club’s 2019 season.
Greenville Football Club’s home matches during its inaugural 2018 season were played at Eugene Stone Stadium on the campus of Furman University.
“Eugene Stone Stadium was an excellent home during our first season,” Greenville Football Club President Marco Carrizales said. “We are extremely grateful to everyone at Furman University that made our inaugural season so memorable. Eugene Stone Stadium will always hold a special place in our club’s history and will forever be the first home of Greenville FC.”
Owned by Greenville County Schools, Sirrine Stadium was built in 1936 by way of a joint project between Furman University and the City of Greenville. The project was spearheaded by Furman University alumni J.E. Sirrine. The construction of Sirrine Stadium began in 1935 with the first game being played in 1936 between Furman and Davidson College.
Sirrine Stadium is home to Greenville High School Red Raiders soccer, football, and lacrosse programs.
“We are excited to have Sirrine Stadium as our new home,” said Carrizales. “The proximity of the stadium to downtown Main Street is an added benefit for us as a club and our fan base. We are excited to continue our efforts in making this club a staple in the heart of Greenville and look forward to providing our growing support base with a more holistic downtown experience. We strongly believe this will provide families, young adults and traveling supporters a better opportunity to experience the city that makes us so great.”
