Wolfpack Pride Campaign
The Wolfpack Pride Campaign was a $45 million capital campaign headlined by the building of the $160 million Entertainment and Sports Arena (later renamed PNC Arena) and opened in 1999. The campaign, which originally began in the 1980s under the charge of raising money for the Centennial Center (the original name of the Entertainment and Sports Arena), gained momentum in the mid-1990s. The re-seating of Carter-Finley Stadium in 1998 also played part in this initiative through the creation and sales of lifetime seating rights. Additional facility projects in the Wolfpack Pride Campaign were baseball stadium lights, office renovations, track and field renovations, parking lot improvements to Carter-Finley Stadium, as well as funding the plans for the future of Carter-Finley Stadium.
