Jones AT&T Stadium | Address: 2626 Mac Davis Lane, Lubbock, Texas, 79409
Jones AT&T Stadium, home of Red Raider football since Nov. 29, 1947, is arguably one of the most electric game day atmospheres in all of college football. Armed with 60,000-plus rabid fans, Dave Curtis of The Sporting News proclaimed in May of 2010 that Jones AT&T Stadium was the best home field advantage in all of college football.
The stadium's majestic beauty on the outside is the perfect facade for a rowdy and terrific game day experience that lies within its walls. Prior to the 2013 season, the experience of watching Red Raider football reached another level with the addition of a high-definition video board that spans 38 X 100 feet in size on a five-tier structure.
The north end zone project exceeded $16 million in the spring and summer of 2013. The project also included a new sound system that features sound banks on each side of the video board screen that are 38 X 16 feet in size. In addition, Jones AT&T Stadium features 157 feet of ribbon board that was added to the north side of the stadium from the northwest to northeast corners of the stadium. Ninety-four lineal feet of ribbon board was also added above the south end zone over the athletics offices.
Overall, since 2003, Texas Tech has invested $135 million during the past 10 years with four major renovations making Jones AT&T Stadium one of the best on-campus football facilities in the country. Included in the renovations, a $34 million east side stadium building, including 29 luxury suites and 544 club seats. These renovations also include new concession areas and restrooms throughout the stadium as well as a newly enlarged Texas Tech Locker Room, the headquarters for all your Texas Tech gear and souvenirs. The West Side Stadium Building officially opened for the 2003 football season. The $52 million dollar, 175,000 sq. ft. facility provides a large and accommodating press level for local and national media, more than 150 tv's and video screens, 47 comfortable and private suites, 1,070 club seats, and a spacious, inviting club level.
The stadium was officially renamed from Jones Stadium to Jones SBC Stadium in 2000 following major corporate gifts (in excess of $25 million) from SBC Communications (now AT&T). The stadium was renamed again in 2006 to Jones AT&T Stadium after SBC Communications formally changed its name to AT&T.
The "Jones" in Jones Stadium comes from former Texas Tech president Clifford B. Jones and his wife Aubrey. The stadium was named in their honor upon its opening in 1947.
