Neta and Eddie DeRose Thunderbowl
Colorado State University-Pueblo's Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl is one of the premier institutions in all of NCAA Division II.
The ThunderBowl is unique in that it was built completely with external funds raised by "Friends of Football", a collection of Pueblo community members and University alums, totalling over $13 million and allowing for the return of football, wrestling and women's track and field to CSU-Pueblo in 2008.
The ThunderBowl features 6,500 seats, a synthetic turf field, a ten-lane all-weather track, throwing, jumping and pole vault areas, as well as a 27,000-square-foot field house, which includes a 4,300-square-foot strength and conditioning complex for all 16 of CSU-Pueblo's intercollegiate athletics programs, team meeting areas, student-athlete study-areas and lounges, and track and football coaches' offices.
CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION at the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl are a 10,000-square-foot weight room, expansion of the athletic training room in the ThunderBowl Fieldhouse, locker additions in the Pack football locker room, upgrades to the women's track and field locker room and new turf for the ThunderBowl field.
