The newly named Branch Stadium in Albuquerque, previously University Stadium, is home to the New Mexico Lobos football team. The football field has seen many upgrades in the last few years for the Division 1 NCAA University. It has grown a little over 9,000 seats since its opening in 1960; it has a current seating capacity of 39,224, but has had crowds as large as 44,760.
On the south side of the turf there is an enormous state-of-the-art scoreboard projecting every action on the field with “LoboVision.” Several more vendors are available providing choices. A version of the Lobo Den, a store with Lobo goods from clothing to window decals, is open to dress anyone up in spirit.
Branch Stadium will see three more Lobo football games before the season concludes; check the Lobo Athletic website to get details on game day and tailgating events. The venue has also hosted other events, such as the recurring New Mexico Bowl, national soccer team games and music concerts.
