Apogee Stadium Debuting New, Upgraded Gameday Services
New Gameday Webpage, Expanded Concessions Menu, More Beer Kiosks Among Updates
DENTON - North Texas Athletics is rolling out an updated and upgraded Apogee Stadium gameday experience, ranging from a redesigned Gameday webpage to services in and around Apogee Stadium.
"Last year, we did comprehensive fan survey on our game day experience and found that by and large fans love the Mean Green football game day experience," Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics and director of athletics Wren Baker said. "We are committed to continue to improve upon our gameday to ensure our fans continue to enjoy one of the best game experiences in the country. I'm appreciative of our staff members in various departments bringing forth new and refined initiatives. We look forward to seeing Mean Green Nation on September 2nd."
The department this week launched a new Mean Green Gameday webpage (www.meangreensports.com/gameday), a fully responsive site optimized for use on handheld devices. The page includes information on each week's game, including stats, opponent schedule and team rosters; where to watch and listen; live game stats; access to stadium maps, services, and parking information; social media links; and Apogee Stadium A to Z.
Among the additions to the Apogee gameday experience:

- The Big Scrappy - a 24-ounce pretzel loaded with pulled brisket, shredded cheese and barbecue sauce. Sold at the Big Scrappy kiosk at the northwest corner of the concourse.

- Mean Green Vegan Hot Dog - sold at the Scrappy's Favorites booth near Section 120 on the east concourse.

Apogee will have three craft-beer kiosks this year (up from one a year ago). They are located on the concourse near sections 105, 109 and 121. This year's beer lineup consists of Audacity Bulletproof, Audacity Seasonal, Henry’s Orange, Rahr IPA, Revolver Blood, Revolver Honey, Bud Light, Dos Equis, Michelob Ultra, Miller Lite, Shiner Bock and Shock Top.
New condiment carts, featuring jalapenos, diced onions, salsa, ranch, honey mustard and Sriracha sauce, will be available throughout the concourse.
TuneIn Radio UNT Channel
Beginning this fall, North Texas athletics will have its own station on the free live-streaming app, TuneIn Radio. UNT Athletics and its multimedia rights holder, Learfield’s Mean Green Sports Properties, have entered into a multi-year partnership with TuneIn.
TuneIn will offer a dedicated UNT station for live Mean Green football and men’s basketball games, select women’s basketball games, pre- and post-game shows, coaches’ shows and archived game replays. To listen, download and open the TuneIn app (available for iOS and Android devices), then search for North Texas.
North Texas broadcasts are also available on TuneIn Radio via KNTU 88.1 FM and KHYI 95.3 FM.
