Fouts Field - Opened in 1952 and closed in 2016. Originally called Eagle Stadium (UNT was known as the Eagles back then). It was built to replace the smaller Eagle field. Eagle field was demolished and the Willis library was built on the site.

Fouts was the longtime home to Mean Green football and track and field. End zone seating was added in 1994. Once Apogee stadium was opened in 2011, Fouts fell out of favor. The process of demolishing Fouts began in 2013 when the east stands (original structure) and the end zone seating were demolished. The board of regents voted to demolish the rest of Fouts within the next year or so. Right now, its basically just sitting there, as you can see by the photos. Once Fouts is finally demolished, a new track and field facility will occupy the site.

Location - I 35 E and Eagle Dr. Denton, Texas On the campus of the University of North Texas, and right across I 35 from the new Apogee stadium.
