Pritchard Gymnasium is a 2,000-seat multi-purpose gymnasium located within the Stony Brook Sports Complex in Stony Brook, New York. The gym opened in 1969 and was the home of the Stony Brook University Patriots/Seawolves basketball and volleyball teams, as well as the venue for a multitude of concerts, including big names such as Janice Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company. The Island Federal Credit Union Arena completed its renovation project in 2014. It also served as the only home of the Seawolves prior to the IFCU Arena's opening in 1990. Pritcard gymnasium was renovated in the summer of 2008 and reopened in time for the 2009 Stony Brook Women's Volleyball season. The new gym features a refinished hardwood floor with a painting of Wolfie, a new large scoreboard, and retractable bleachers.
