Edinburg Stadium is a stadium in Edinburg, Texas. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home of the UTPA Broncs of college baseball. It was also the home to the Edinburg Roadrunners of the Texas-Louisiana League/Central Baseball League/United League Baseball. The Roadrunners disbanded before the 2014 season.[3] The stadium which opened in 2001 holds 4,000 people, expandable to 14,000-16,000 for concerts and other special events. It includes a 17.8' x 13.6' diamondvision scoreboard and luxury boxes.

The stadium, formerly owned by the City of Edinburg, was donated to the University of Texas System. The University of Texas-Pan American will operate the stadium.[4] The stadium will continue to be called Edinburg Stadium initially; however, naming rights are available.
