AVEVA is the principal sponsor of the team and has stadium naming rights as well as the right to have the AVEVA name on the front of the SaberCats game and training jerseys.

The new stadium will be named AVEVA Stadium and will be the home of the Houston SaberCats in addition to serving as the venue for numerous other events held in conjunction with the City of Houston and other organizations.

The venue has seating for over 3,000 fans with an overall capacity of 4,000, including a standing room only Pavilion Area off the south in-goal where a fantastic gathering and watching area is planned.

There are 600 VIP seats set at/near the midfield mark that provide optimal viewing and also offer special access to a 120-seat section in the Pavilion Area allowing these VIP seat holders to check-out the action from another vantage point as they wish.
