Mackay Stadium History

The Mountain West Conference is always full of fierce competition, with many different rivalries that heat up stadiums all over the conference.

When the stadium opened in 1966, it's capacity was only 7,5000 seats, but with the growing popularity and success of the Wolf Pack football team, expansions were necessary. Mackay Stadium now seats 30,000 fans, providing an intimate and deafening atmosphere that encourages the home team and intimidates the visitors.
