Apogee Stadium at the University of North Texas is a symbol of the university's commitment to excellence and vision for the future. UNT announced in August a 20-year, $20 million agreement with higher education technology leader Apogee for the naming rights of the new football and entertainment venue.
As the largest and most ambitious building project in UNT's history, the stadium marks a new era for the Mean Green and provides a dramatic theater that will bring the North Texas region together for football games, concerts and other large events.
The bowl-shaped structure, with its design reminiscent of an eagle, features seating for nearly 31,000 fans. It is a highly visible gateway to UNT — the largest public university in the region — and a destination for the community.
Designed by award-winning HKS Architects, designers of the new Dallas Cowboys stadium, and built by Manhattan Construction, UNT's Apogee Stadium has luxury suites, a club level, Athletic Center terrace, spirit store and eco-friendly features unlike any collegiate stadium in the world.
The power of Apogee Stadium is in the people it will serve — a pride-filled Mean Green Nation, a community with reasons to celebrate.

A new era in Mean Green football is taking shape. With more than 30 years of experience coaching football, new Mean Green Head Coach Dan McCarney arrives with credentials unlike any other coach in North Texas history. He is an expert in rebuilding football programs and engineering top-ranked defenses. And McCarney's ties to the Mean Green Nation run deep — he served on the staff of UNT Hall of Fame Head Coach Hayden Fry in Iowa. The Mean Green's 18th head football coach has been active on campus, speaking to students and incoming freshmen, and has taken his pride into the community with a Coaches Caravan tour around the Dallas-Fort Worth region. With a team that includes senior All-America running back Lance Dunbar, McCarney is ready for a debut season to be remembered in the region's most talked about new state-of-the-art football and entertainment venue – Apogee Stadium at the University of North Texas.
With nearly 31,000 seats, UNT's new Apogee Stadium offers bowl seating and excellent sightlines. Complete with a club level, luxury suites, a spirit store and numerous options for concessions and restroom breaks, the stadium will give fans a unique gameday experience. And in accordance with UNT's environmental stewardship goals and commitment to create a sustainable campus, the university is following strict Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. The stadium is built with non-toxic materials, uses non-processed water for the chilling plant, features solar cells on top of the ticket booth and will include 150-foot wind turbines — in hopes of having the nation's first new-construction collegiate football stadium that achieves Platinum LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Stadium windows maximize natural lighting, and landscaping with native plants requires less water. The three wind turbines to be installed southwest of the stadium will inject about half a million kilowatt hours a year into a UNT power grid — wind energy expected to save UNT $40,000 to $50,000 a year.
