Inhabitat reader Erin tells us that the University of North Texas is in the midst of building another  LEED certified college football stadium. The first LEED certified college football stadium opened in September 2009 at the University of Minnesota with their TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. After The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approved UNT’s proposal back in October the university held a groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate the special occasion. The new stadium will replace the 57-year-old Fouts Field, and is one of many green projects happening on campus as part of the UNT “We Mean Green” initiative.

    [...] Presumably, since Smits is from The Netherlands, he’s referring to the global understanding of football and not the American version, but if you’re gearing up for the fall onslaught of big men tackling each other, you can go on ahead and think about it as an American football stadium.

    The University of Minnesota has already built a LEED stadium, TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The building is finished and in use as of last fall: http://www.gophersports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=8400&ATCLID=204796278

    I’m sorry, but your post makes a HUGE mistake and is very misleading. The first LEED certified college football stadium opened in September 2009 at the University of Minnesota. TCF Bank Stadium received LEED Silver status before it hosted its first game and holds over 50,000 people.
