Southwest University Park is a baseball stadium and forms an integral part of the sports scene in the city. This ballpark is very well designed to provide optimum seating facilities, a good view of the pitch and an even better view of the surrounding countryside mountains. This stadium is home to the El Paso Chihuahuas and draws crowds of local supporters to every game. The stadium has a number of fast food restaurants and souvenir shops and also has party rooms and an event space available for hire to host birthdays, anniversaries and other parties.
With a capacity of 11,767 people, the Don Haskins Center is the largest sports and concert venue in the city. It was named after a basketball coach here at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and today it still hosts college hoops as well as boxing, wrestling and pre-season NBA games. Occasionally, the DHC hosts live music, in the past Fleetwood Mac and Aerosmith have graced the stage here as well as many other big name acts.
Even though this casino is located in New Mexico, everyone from El Paso still makes a sojourn out to try their hand at a winner. Founded in 1959, the racetrack presents live televised races at over 800 different stations. A number of top-tier horses have come out of Sunland Park, including Bold Liz and Prince Astro. A few well-known jockeys got their feet wet here too, like Mike Smith and Jerry Bailey. The casino's no small beans either. With over 700 slot machines, you can bet your top dollar you'll have tennis elbow by the time you leave!
Right next to the Franklin Mountains, Cohen Stadium is primarily used for baseball, more specifically for Diablos baseball, El Paso's minor-league team. The stadium was built in 1990 and can seat 9,725.
