Jones AT&T Stadium is an outdoor athletic stadium on the campus of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, United States built in the style of Spanish Renaissance architecture. It is the home field of the Texas Tech Red Raiders football team of the Big 12 Conference.
Planning and fundingClifford B. and Audrey Jones Stadium opened in 1947. The original seating capacity was 27,000.
ExpansionIn 1959 the stadium's first expansion raised the seating to 41,500. The existing east stands were moved a few feet at a time via steel rollers upon Santa Fe Railroad rails and moved 150ft further east, and the playing surface was lowered 28 feet below street level, to accommodate the new lower bowl. It was expanded again in 1972 with new red, metal seats on the north side bringing capacity of 48,000.
ModernizationThe largest renovation project to date was the construction of a $51.9 million, 175000sqft press box on the stadium's west side that included luxury suites, club seating and decks for television cameras and the press. The project added 2,000 seats and was completed during the 2003 season.
The stadium name was changed to Jones SBC Stadium in 2000 due to a naming rights agreement with SBC Communications, then being led by Texas Tech alumnus and CEO Edward Whitacre, Jr.. SBC Communications funded a large part of the stadium's West Stadium Club expansion. On April 6, 2006, the facility officially changed names again, this time to Jones AT&T Stadium as a result of SBC's purchase of AT&T Corporation and adoption of AT&T as its new corporate name.

  • I love seeing the Red Raiders play at the Stadium at TTU. Having graduated from Clemson and worked there for many years, the stadium is TOO BIG. I'd rather watch the games on TV, but at the AT& T...  more »

  • One of the best college football stadiums! Great atmosphere. Plenty of concessions stands so there is very short waits for food. The prices are high, but that is expected. Make sure to not open your water bottles in line, you will have to trash them. Raider Power!
  • I love going to this stadium to sport my team the Red Raiders or Texas Tech. This is a very nice stadium and is pretty big. Typically in Texas it gets very hot so it does get very hot in the stadium since there is no roof. But really it's a very enjoyable le besides the heat. There are plenty of food stop in the stadium and there are a lot of bathrooms. Half time is very fun and the band is as always, amazing. So if your looking for something to do then going to a game at the stadium is a great way to sped your time.
