Carolina Field Hockey welcomes a new stadium on the former Ehringhaus Field site. In addition to a new playing surface and stadium, the program moves into a team building that meets the needs of today’s field hockey student-athletes.

The Facility Includes:

  • 900-seat stadium with fan amenities (concessions and restrooms)
  • Press and scorers box
  • LED sport lighting and LED video scoreboard
  • Team building with locker rooms, team room, sports medicine space, players’ lounge, meeting space and coaches’ offices

Please Consider a Gift to the Stadium

You have the opportunity to directly help Carolina’s Field Hockey program continue to compete at the championship level. The cost of the new Karen Shelton Stadium is $15.2 million. Your gifts will secure the ability of Carolina to attract the best student-athletes to Chapel Hill, and to give them the facilities they need to succeed. Please consider a gift to the Karen Shelton Stadium project.
