HOUSTON - The University of Houston (UH) will debut the $120 million football stadium August 29. UH and Texas Dow Employees Credit Union (TDECU) agreed this summer to a ten-year naming rights partnership that will pay $15 million total.

The 40,000-seat TDECU Stadium was built on the former site of Robertson Stadium. Seating includes 5,000 permanent student seats in the east end and 26 suites spanning from end zone to end zone on the south side.

There are four open-air end-zone party decks, each with 24 armchairs. There are also two open-air party suites located on the east and west end of the suite level featuring 60 padded armchairs each.

A 12,400-sf multipurpose club area will overlook the field of play (25 feet above the playing surface) from the south side concourse.

The 39,089-sf Bert F. Winston Band Complex, home to UH's Spirit of Houston Band, is located on the stadium's east end.

A total of 160 concessions areas are located throughout the stadium, including portable kiosks on the upper level. There are more than 50 restrooms located throughout the stadium.
