TD Arena is a 5,100 seat multi-purpose arena in Charleston, South Carolina, USA that opened in 2008 and replaced John Kresse Arena as the home of the College of Charleston Cougars basketball and volleyball teams. The South Financial Group of Greenville, South Carolina, purchased the naming rights to the new facility, when it opened in 2008 under the Carolina First Arena name. After the 2010 sale of the corporation to Toronto Dominion Bank, the arena's name changed to TD Arena. The playing surface is named John Kresse Court in honor of legendary coach John Kresse.
Originally to be named Carolina First Center, the facility was renamed Carolina First Arena to avoid confusion with the bank's south coast main offices in Charleston which are located in an office building by the same name.
The arena not only plays host to Cougars basketball games, but it also hosts many other campus events, including orientations and campus tours. Also, several high school volleyball games have been held there.
