Initially, in 1966, the stadium was named Carter Stadium. Later, the name of Albert E. Finley, a major contributor of the stadium was added to the stadium in September 1979.
In the 1950s, the University was looking to replace the on-campus Riddick Stadium, constructed in 1907 with concrete-and-wood and was not in the condition to conduct events anymore. Hence, it was decided to build a new stadium on the same site named as Carter–Finley Stadium.
