Brownson Arena opened its doors for the first time in 1968 following Houston Hall housing the Mavericks for a number of years. Since the grand opening, Brownson Arena has undergone a number of renovations, most notably in 2009. In 2009, the arena received new seat back bleachers on the west wall along with additional seating added on the east side. A new paint scheme was put on the floor along with the walls. In addition, brand new scoreboards and sound system was added to make Brownson Arena one of the best small college facilities in the country. With the renovations, Brownson Arena also built luxury suites overlooking the gymnasium. The suites are equipped with a flat screen television with cable as well as the ability to watch the game video feed live. Suites can be purchased for any Maverick Athletic event held in Brownson Arena and includes catered food and Pepsi products. During the Summer of 2012, a high definition Daktronics Video board was installed on the north wall, increasing the fan experience with animations, replays, and stat packages. Brownson Arena is also home to many high school basketball and wrestling tournaments as well as club volleyball and basketball tournaments. The facility also houses graduations, special banquets, concerts, and mixed martial arts events. Parking for Brownson Arena is located just east of the main entrance in the Maverick Center parking garage. Fans may also park north of the venue on the street or in the Orchard Avenue Dorm parking lot. A true gem of a sports facility. Brownsons falls short of 5 stars on its seating capacity of just under 2100, add a thousand more seats and the Arena is a 5 star venue.
Named after former Denver Bears right fielder, New York Yankees prospect and MLB Coach Sam Suplizio.Suplizio Field is currently home of the Rookie-level Grand Junction Rockies of the Pioneer League. The stadium is located just northeast of downtown Grand Junction in Lincoln Park. The ballpark is adjacent on its west side to Ralph Stocker Stadium. Suplizio Field is the primary home for Colorado Mesa University and local high school baseball and has been the home of the Junior College World Series since 1958. In June 2011, both Suplizio Field and Ralph Stocker Stadiumunderwent an $8.3 million renovation project to replace the aging original concrete bleacher section along the first base line at Suplizio, along with the original bleacher section and press box on the west side of adjoining Ralph Stocker Stadium, with a new section that includes new seating for both venues as well as a new two story press box and handicapped accessible mezzanine level. Lack of Parking keeps this legendary Park out of the number one spot.
Ralph Stocker Stadium is the 8,000 seat home of the Mesa State Mavericks. Stocker Stadium is ran by the City of Grand Junction and is also the home of high school football. Other activities held on the field include high school and college commencements, and the Western Colorado Marching Band Festival. The Stadium is in great shape and a premier College and High School football field. Lack of parking keeps Stocker Stadium out of the top two.
Mesa County Fairgrounds at Veterans Memorial Park is the quintessential place for all your fairgrounds and especially equestrian needs for the Grand Junction Area. The Fairgrounds host Equestrian and Livestock shows, Rodeos, Banquet facilities, Receptions, Concerts Motor Cross and Monster Trucks. The Fairgrounds large Grand Stands give fans a great view of the action but even with recent updates the Grand Stand are in need of minor renovations.
Two Rivers Convention Center is an ideal place for a wedding reception site, civic club meeting or a place to hold your trade show, Two Rivers' nearly 23,000 square feet of space can accommodate you and your group of up to 1,500 people. With no stadium seating and low ceiling makes Two Rivers a poor choice for sporting events.
