Carolina First Arena - {CATEGORY}

The Carolina First Arena is a 5,100 seat multi-purpose arena in Charleston, South Carolina, USA that opened in 2008 and replaced John Kresse Arena as the home of the College of Charleston Cougars basketball teams. Carolina First Bank purchased the naming rights to the new facility. With the bank's pending sale to TD Financial Group, the name of the arena is likely to change when Carolina First ceases to exist and is merged into TD Bank. The playing surface is named John Kresse Court in honor of legendary coach John Kresse. Originally to be named Carolina First Center, the facility was renamed Carolina First Arena to avoid confusion with the bank's south coast main offices in Charleston which are located in an office building by the same name. The first game played at the arena on November 14, 2008 was a first round game of the inaugural Charleston Classic between Texas Christian University and Western Michigan University won by TCU 67-63. The arena not only plays host to Cougars basketball games, but it also hosts many other campus events, including orientations and campus tours. Also, several high school volleyball games have been held there.
