Eugene E. Stone III Stadium is a soccer stadium located in Columbia, South Carolina on the campus of the University of South Carolina. The 5,000 seat ground is home to the USC Gamecocks soccer teams since 1981, when the Gamecocks started the men's program in 1978.

The current grandstand was built in 1996 thanks to a USD 1m grant from Eugene E. Stone III, a Carolina graduate.

The nickname "the Graveyard" comes from the stadium's proximity to House of Peace cemetery.

The women's team plays in the Southeastern Conference, while the men's team plays in Conference USA (men's soccer is not sanctioned by the SEC; both SEC schools with the sport play in C-USA).
