E. Claiborne Robins Stadium - {CATEGORY}

E. Claiborne Robins Stadium is a 3,000+-seat multi-purpose stadium at the University of Richmond. It is currently home to the Richmond Spiders men's and women's soccer, women's lacrosse, and men's and women's track and field teams. Known for many years simply as the Soccer/Track Complex, the facility was renamed First Market Stadium in 2001 in recognition of a major gift from First Market Bank. In 2002, the stadium's track was completely rebuilt, and in 2003 was named Fred Hardy Track in honor of the longtime Spider coach. The playing surface was changed from natural grass to FieldTurf artificial turf in 2004. On September 16th, 2009, the University of Richmond announced that First Market Stadium would be renamed E. Claiborne Robins Stadium to honor the legacy of E. Claiborne Robins, Sr. and his historic philanthropy to the school. The Spider football team has played its home games at University of Richmond Stadium, located approximately three miles from the campus, for over 75 years. As the stadium aged and demand grew for an on-campus facility, plans were proposed for expanding First Market Stadium in order to accommodate the football program. The plans call for an expansion to approximately 8,700 seats and a projected opening date for football of 2010. In excess of $25 million was committed to the project by the university and donors, including a $5 million gift from the Robins Foundation. Demolition on the old stadium began on December 20, 2008, coincidentally the day after the Spider Football team won the school's first National Championship. With the 2 events coinciding, some were prompted to comment "Some teams tear down goal posts when they win a championship, Richmond tore down a stadium. " The facility is expected to continue to serve as the home of the soccer, lacrosse, and track and field programs along with the football program.
