The first Bronco Stadium was built in the 1940’s, for the original purpose for junior college football, later in the 1950’s they used half the stadium for a baseball field!! In 1968 Boise State upgraded their football team to division 2, allowing them to create a brand new $2.2 million concrete stadium which was completed in 1970. The stadium opened on September 11th holding up to 14,500 seats. For the first five seasons, the stadium had consisted of two sidelines grandstands; the west side had an upper deck and the press box. In 1974 BSU added on yet another upper deck level to the east side, adding 5,500 seats as well as adding on symmetry. In 1997 BSU was entered into division I-A, which then required more seats, so BSU added on to the stadium and by the end of the year the stadium held 30,000 seats. More seats were then added on again in 08 and 09, adding 2,000 more seats in press and club boxes, and 1,500 more stadium seats. Bronco Stadium's current attendance record is 34,137, achieved on September 25, 2010, a victory over Oregon State. In 2008 the Stueckle Sky Center was opened and the capacity of Bronco Stadium went up to 32,000. The four level facilities includes loge boxes, club seating, sky suites and game/media operations for Boise State home football games. Additionally, five individual banquet style or meeting room spaces are located throughout the 131,000 square foot facility.
