Chants switch sidelines, set schedule for 2013 season

The Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics announces its 2013 football schedule – including six home games and a contest to end the regular-season at South Carolina – and that the Chanticleer football team will be relocated to the west sideline of Benton Field.

Coastal will open the 2013 season playing three of its first five games on the road, including the season opener at South Carolina State on Aug. 31. The Chanticleers home opener and first game on their new sideline will be Sept. 7 versus intrastate rival Furman and CCU will host Hampton on Sept. 21 as part of Family Weekend.

Over a six-week span Coastal will play four home games, hosting Gardner-Webb (Oct. 12), VMI (Oct. 26), Charlotte (Nov. 2 for Homecoming) and Presbyterian (Nov. 16). In conjunction with the move to the set sideline, seating areas will be reconfigured in Brooks Stadium.

“After spending a season on the east sidelines, our coaching staff believes it would be advantageous for our team and, more importantly, be beneficial to our student-athletes to use the west sidelines moving forward,” said Director of Athletics Hunter Yurachek. “The move additionally provides an opportunity to install bench back seats in the west stands. This will create another priority seating area for our fans as well as allow a transition for growth on the west side of Brooks Stadium.

“However, as we grow as a program, the sideline our team prefers to operate from should have little consequence on which side our fans choose to sit at Brooks Stadium. The entire stadium is Coastal’s home with a small section of seats for visiting teams.”

The Bronze seating, which has bench back seating throughout, will expand to two sections on the west side as Sections 127 and 128 behind the CCU bench will have bench backs installed for the 2013 season. On the east side, the Bronze seating includes Sections 103-106 as well as the chair back seats in Sections 202, 203, 206 and 207.

The Teal seating will now include only Sections 204 and 205 on the east side and remains premium seating as those chair back seats are located at the midfield viewing area between the 30 yard lines.

The CCU Band (Section 124) and the Chantourage (south end zone) will remain in the same locations as last year.

The Family Zone moves back to Sections 129-131 on the west side. Inflatables will continue to be located behind the Family Zone and cheerleaders will be located directly in front of the Family Zone.

Other new sections include the CCU Player Guests (now Section 126), the Visiting Team (now Sections 101-102) and the Blitz Zones (now Sections 107, 108, 125).

Season ticket renewals for the 2013 campaign at the end of March and new season ticket orders can be made at that time as well. There will be a Select-A-Seat day(s) for season ticket holders who have made their CAF donation and purchased their season tickets by July 12, 2013.

Coastal Carolina will begin preparations for the 2013 season on March 19 with the first of 15 spring practices, culminating on April 13 at 1 pm for the annual Teal-Black Spring Game in Brooks Stadium.

Also on April 13, the Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics will host the Second Annual Teal-Chicken Pig Pickin’ BBQ Festival and Cook-off at 11 am.
