Known for its blue turf, Bronco Stadium is the home field for the Boise State Broncos. It’s a lively place to watch a game and one stadium that any football fan would love to take a game in at.
Sections 5 to 11 are on the visitor’s sideline, and go from Row A to Row V. Sections 20-26 are on the home team side. There are north and south end zone bleachers, as well as smaller sections behind the south end zone numbered 27-35.
Bronco Stadium is not a gigantic stadium, so even upper level seats give you very good views. The cheapest ticket in the stadium is likely in the south end zone of the upper level.
