Product Description

FOUTS FIELD & THE SUPER PIT
 
DEN-102, 901392
 
FOUTS FIELD: Fouts Field is the stadium of the University of North Texas, located in Denton, Texas, United States. It is primarily used for football, and is the home field of the University of North Texas Eagles, also known as the Mean Green.
 
The stadium opened in September 1952 originally named Eagle Stadium. In 1954 it was named in honor of Theron J. Fouts, former football coach, athletics director and founder of UNT's track and field program. The stadium originally consisted of the two sideline grandstands on either side of the track, which runs towards the northwest, and sat 20,000.
 
The University of North Texas commissioned HKS,Inc., a Dallas-based architecture firm, who previously designed the Dallas Mavericks' American Airlines Center, Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, and the Texas Rangers' The Ballpark at Arlington to design a replacement stadium. The proposed 30-35,000 seat stadium (currently called "New North Texas Mean Green Stadium") has a projected price tag of $60M --- in comparison to other recently built FBS stadiums, a modest price.
 
UNT COLISEUM: The UNT Coliseum is a 9,797-seat multi-purpose arena located in Denton, Texas, United States built in 1973. Despite being home to the North Texas Mean Green men's and women's basketball teams, the athletic department rents the building from the University of North Texas. For non-athletic functions, the arena is known as the Coliseum and for athletic functions the arena is known as the Super Pit, a nickname derived from its proximity to the former home of the Mean Green basketball teams, the Ken Bahnsen Gym, nicknamed the Snake Pit. It is the largest basketball arena in Conference USA.
