Robertson Stadium Information

  • Robertson Stadium was a joint project of the Houston Independent School District (HISD) and the Works Progress Administration (WPA), a federal agency created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal.
  • HISD purchased the land (60 acres) now bound by Holman, Cullen (formerly St. Bernard's street), Elgin and Wheeler Streets for $75,000 - an average of $1,253 per acre.
  • Renamed Jeppesen Stadium in 1958 in honor of Holger Jeppesen, a longtime member of the Houston School Board.
  • 1960 K.S. "Bud" Adams, new owner of Houston Oilers in the American Football league, signed a lease to play home games at Robertson Stadium. Expand seating from 22,000 to 36,000.
  • Cougars play only game between 1951-94 at Robertson Stadium on Friday, Sept. 25 1964, and shutout Texas A&M, 10-0
  • Underwent $2 million facelift in 1983 for the NCAA Track and Field Championships and further renovations came in 1989 when Cougar and Olympian Carl Lewis provided new runways and resurfacing of the track which served as his training home.
  • Houston played two games on campus in 1996 and three in 1997 before returning to Robertson full-time in 1998.
  • As part of $6 million gift from John and Julie O'Quinn, several renovations took place between 1998 and 1999. Capacity was raised from 20,500 to approximately 33,000. The track was replaced with a ring of lower tiered seating and the playing field was lowered nine feet. Seating was constructed in each endzone and 32 luxury suites on both sides of stadium were added along with concession stands and restrooms built in each endzone. A new scoreboard and sound system were installed, as well as new sidewalks, walkway, fencing, patios and interior and exterior landscaping.
