Albertsons Stadium is an outdoor athletic stadium in Boise, Idaho, the home field of the Boise State Broncos of the Mountain West Conference. Known as Bronco Stadium for its first 44 seasons, it was renamed in May 2014 when Albertsons, a chain of grocery stores founded by Boise local Joe Albertson, purchased the naming rights.
Opened in 1970, it was also a track & field stadium and hosted the NCAA track & field championships twice, in 1994 and 1999. The stadium was used extensively for local high school football for decades until August 2012, when games were transferred to the new Dona Larsen Park, which is also the new home venue of Boise State's track & field team.
Albertsons Stadium is widely known for its unusual blue playing surface, installed in 1986 while Boise State was in the Big Sky Conference. It was the first non-green playing surface (outside of painted end zones) in football history and remained the only one among NCAA Division I FBS schools for nearly 30 years.
Since 1997, it has hosted the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Humanitarian Bowl from 1997 to January 2004 & 2007 to 2010; MPC Computers Bowl from 2004 to 2006), the longest-running outdoor bowl game in a cold-weather venue.(Wikipedia)
