Apogee Stadium

The North Texas football team plays its home games at Apogee Stadium, located at the corner of I-35E and Bonnie Brae Street.

Opened in 2011, Apogee Stadium was designed by the same team that created the spectacular Dallas Cowboys Stadium. It 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. Click here for more information on Apogee Stadium.

Football Tailgating

Tailgating is as much a tradition at Mean Green football games as any other university, and North Texas took tailgating into account when it constructed Apogee Stadium, setting aside an area just outside the stadium for students, fans and alumni to gather before games. It's called The Hill, a gentle rise dotted with trees lying just outside the east entrance to the stadium and north of the Victory Hall parking lot.

Tailgating takes place on The Hill, in all parking lots adjacent to Apogee Stadium, in the Fouts Field lot, and on the main campus before every home game.

These items are permitted in the tailgating areas:

  • Signage, Greek letters, banners, flags
  • Pop-up tents
  • Grills, smokers, etc.
  • Tables
  • Couches, chairs, etc.
  • Food and beverages
  • Coolers
  • Music

These items are NOT permitted in the tailgating areas:

  • Glass bottles
  • Kegs
  • Vehicles cannot be parked on sidewalks or grass

Responsible and lawful consumption of alcohol is permitted within University rules and protocols. Glass containers and kegs are NOT permitted.

Tailgating activity that takes up vacant parking spaces or interferes with traffic flow within a parking lot is prohibited. Saving spaces for other vehicles is also prohibited. Tents, tarps, or canopies may not impede foot or vehicular traffic or extend into additional parking spaces. Ground stakes are prohibited in paved parking areas, and stakes used in the green space area may not be longer than 12 inches or wider than half an inch in order to not interfere with underground utilities. Weights or sandbags are encouraged.

Commercially-sponsored tailgates are prohibited except in designated locations. To organize such a tailgate, contact the sales department at 940-565-2527.

Friday Pre-Tailgating Equipment Drop-Off

On Friday before each Saturday home game, students can drop off tailgating supplies at The Hill, located just east of Apogee Stadium near Victory Hall and Gate 4 of the stadium. Tents, couches, grills and all other tailgating necessities can be dropped off at the I-35 frontage road parking lot. Security is not provided in this area so items of value should not be left unattended. Drop off can also take place on game day until four hours prior to kickoff. At this time the service road is closed for pedestrian safety. The drop-off area will reopen one hour after the game for removal of your tailgating gear.

Mean Green March

Two and a half hours prior to kickoff, the North Texas football team arrives at Apogee Stadium accompanied by the band, dancers, and cheerleaders. Be sure to greet the team and cheer them on as they march through the tailgating area to the stadium.

Green Brigade Pregame Extravaganza

Thirty minutes prior to kickoff, the North Texas Green Brigade band will perform on the Apogee Stadium field, leading up to the moment when the football team emerges from the lockerroom for the game.

Items Prohibited At Apogee Stadium

Bells, horns, whistles and other artificial noise makers are not permitted at Apogee Stadium per NCAA and Sun Belt Conference policies. Other prohibited items include but are not limited to: fireworks, weapons, flag poles, laser pointers, animals, explosive devices, artificial noise makers, outside food and drink (including tortillas), alcoholic beverages, hard-sided bags, suitcases, glass or metal beverage containers, flasks, coolers, thermoses, aerosol spray cans, umbrellas, video recorders and tripods.

Banners and Signs

Handheld banners, signs and flags are permitted that do not contain profanity or derogatory statements and do not obstruct the view of other spectators. No banners, signs or flags may be hung at Fouts Field without the prior approval of the Athletic Department.

Road Football Game Tickets

Students are also able to purchase guest tickets on their mobile device. Complete information and instructions are available for mobile student tickets are available at the North Texas Ticket Office website.

The Pit Crew

The Pit Crew is the official student section at North Texas home basketball games. There's a reason that North Texas has such a home-court advantage - because Mean Green students are loud and proud and give the Super Pit the reputation as being an intimidating place to play.

Road Basketball Game Tickets

The North Texas Athletic Office does not offer tickets to men's or women's road basketball games. Students interested in attending away games should contact the host institution for tickets.

Soccer, Softball and Volleyball Student Tickets

North Texas students receive free admission to all home soccer, volleyball and softball games with their student ID.
