As successful businessmen, Friends of Football also realized bringing back football could help the local economy.

The new facility is a hillside construction with seating for both home and visitor. Fashioned like a bowl, the facility will have 3,230 seats on the home side and 3,230 seats on the visitor side with a total seating capacity of 6,460.

Not only do we hope to lay the foundation for a successful Colorado State University - Pueblo program, but deliver on our promise a little early as well by completing the project by April 1, 2008!"

Southern Bleacher Company is a 3rd generation, family owned and operated company that takes pride in their commitment to excellence.
