Central El Paso
Central El Paso is well known for our top tier University of Texas at El Paso, UTEP!
El Paso has no major league sports teams, but we still love local sports. The University of Texas-El Paso Miners’ football and soccer teams play at Sun Bowl. UTEP’s football stadium is carved into the side of a mountain so even if you do not go see a game it is definitely worth to go check out the stadium.

Southwest University Park not only features some amazing baseball games but also our newest edition soccer team “El Paso Locomotive” which was unveiled on October 4,2018.
