GREENVILLE, S.C. – Greenville Triumph SC and the Greenville Liberty today announced that the teams will play their home matches at Furman University’s Paladin Stadium in 2023 as the club works toward the construction of a multi-use stadium.
“We are proud to call Furman University the official match home of the Triumph and Liberty,” said Chris Lewis, president of Greenville Triumph SC. “Furman has been a fantastic partner as the training site for the Liberty. Furman’s sophisticated athletic facilities, resources, and core values make it a perfect fit for our organization and playing our home matches at the stadium only builds on that relationship.”
Since its formation as the Upstate’s professional soccer club, USL League One's Greenville Triumph SC has played its first four seasons at Legacy Early College in West Greenville. The USL W League's Greenville Liberty joined the men at Legacy Early College for their 2022 inaugural season.
Greenville Triumph SC chairman and owner, Joe Erwin, praised Legacy Early College and its founder, William Brown, for their hospitality. “Though we originally planned to stay just two seasons, the school graciously accommodated us for two more years. We will be forever grateful for the memories created on that pitch, the school administrators and staff with whom we worked, and the incredible scholars we’ve met along the way.”
Triumph SC will continue its Legacy Early College internship program and have donated a scoreboard, field improvements and stadium amenities to the school.
“At Furman, the team will continue to build on the fan experience the organization has committed to providing since its inception,” said Doug Erwin, vice chairman and Chief Brand Officer for the Triumph. “Fans can look forward to the improved amenities and greater capacity of Paladin Stadium.”
Furman will continue as the training site for the Greenville Liberty, and Greenville Triumph SC will continue to use Bob Jones University as its training site.
“Furman University is honored to partner with Greenville Triumph SC and Greenville Liberty, and we are thrilled to host them on campus this season,” said Vice President for Athletics Jason Donnelly. “Their mission to use soccer as a platform to inspire unity and create joy in a way that unites the people of Upstate South Carolina and beyond both complements our university’s goals and helps us to extend our Paladin reach.”
