Apogee Stadium, the home of North Texas football, is the long-awaited replacement to Fouts Field and the centerpiece of the Mean Green Athletic Village. Opened in 2011, Apogee Stadium was designed by the same team that created the spectacular Dallas Cowboys Stadium, award-winning architects HKS Sports and Entertainment Group and Manhattan Construction, and they brought some of the same touches to Denton. Apogee features two huge, state-of-the-art video boards, 21 luxury suites, 750 club seats, high-tech facilities for broadcast and print media, banquet rooms and an 1,800-square-foot team apparel store. The stadium seats 30,850 in a horseshoe-shaped bowl, putting fans close to the action and offering excellent sight lines from every seat. A spacious concourse runs under the seats and boasts 23 concession stands for food and drink vendors. Behind the north end zone is one of Apogee Stadium's two signature features, giant wing-shaped grandstands which echo the shape of the Mean Green's eagle logo. The tips of the grandstand's wings reach 106 feet above the playing field. Apogee's other distinguishing characteristic is its unique green ecological design. Apogee Stadium is the first newly-constructed college football stadium in the nation to be awarded a LEED Platinum Certification, the highest level of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design status.
