Opened for the 2010-11 season, state-of-the-art Robins Stadium is an 8,700-seat on-campus facility that serves as the home for Spider football, men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, soccer and track and field.  The stadium bears the name E. Claiborne Robins in honor of the decades of generous support that the Robins family and the Robins Foundation have provided to the University, including athletics.

Standing alongside the Robins Center, Robins Stadium boasts state-of-the-art FieldTurf that was installed in the summer of 2013. The Fred Hardy track that surrounds the field was completely remodeled with the construction of the stadium. 

A 20’ x 35’ video board, standing 75-feet high, keeps fans in tune with the action with live and replay video, stats, out-of-town scores and more.  A series of suites sits atop the west stands while a press box accommodating media, coaches, and game operations sits above the east stands.  Light towers standing 110 feet high and focused directly onto the field of play allows for the flexibility of night games.

Football returned to campus for the first time since 1928 when it hosted Elon Sept. 18, 2010 in its inaugural game at Robins Stadium.  The Spiders won in overtime, 27-21, in front of a sellout crowd.

Robins Stadium hosts women’s soccer competitions in the Fall and men’s and women’s lacrosse games in the Spring.  The Fred Hardy Invitational track meet is held annually in the spring at Robins Stadium.

Robins Stadium was designed and built using the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) rating standards and has earned the LEED Silver Rating.
