According to Bob Miller, CEO of Boise-based Albertsons, “Albertsons has chosen to link our name with Boise State because we admire and share its commitment to the values of becoming part of the community, integrity, hard work, developing leadership and continuously learning and improving.”

The company and the university, which are located just a few miles from each other, have partnered previously — in 1990, when the company donated $6 million toward a $10-million expansion of the Boise State library, which was subsequently renamed the Albertsons Library.

The future Albertsons Stadium is currently called Bronco Stadium.
