Fouts Field is the former stadium of the University of North Texas, located in Denton, Texas, United States. It was primarily used for football, and was the home field of the University of North Texas Eagles, also known as the Mean Green from 1952-2010. Apogee Stadium replaced Fouts Field as the home of the Mean Green in the 2011 football season.
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 endzone grandstands which stretch around the track, were added in 1994 and seat another 10,500. The addition of those overflow seats brought the stadium up to its current capacity. The playing surface of Fouts Field is Sportex Omnigrass Artificial Turf, which was installed prior to the 2005 playing season.

Famous quotes containing the word field:
“... there are no chains so galling as the chains of ignoranceno fetters so binding as those that bind the soul, and exclude it from the vast field of useful and scientific knowledge. O, had I received the advantages of early education, my ideas would, ere now, have expanded far and wide; but, alas! I possess nothing but moral capabilityno teachings but the teachings of the Holy Spirit.”
—Maria Stewart (18031879)
