East Carolina University’s Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, with its seating capacity for 50,000 fans, a brand new press box, and hospitality suite tower, is the heartbeat of Greenville and Pirate Nation on Saturdays in the fall. Our football stadium not only provides a great atmosphere for hosting the big game on Saturday, but also has several locations from Murphy Center to the new Towne Bank Tower to host your gathering, meeting, or reception for sports-minded groups. 

If you are looking to host a football tournament, look no further than ECU’s North Recreational Complex in Greenville. Eight fully-lit natural grass fields are the centerpiece of this state-of-the-art facility. Complete with on site parking, permanent restroom facilities, covered field house, and many other amenities, North Recreational Complex will fit the need for your tournament, large or small.
