The $60 Million High School Football Stadium

20 04 2010

New stadiums are often seen as a way for a city to generate money.  Tourism and surrounding businesses surge with the construction and opening of a new sports arena.

These stadiums are typically built for professional teams, like the Dallas Cowboys new arena.  But now, high school teams are getting in on the action.

That’s right.  High school teams are getting their own  half-billion dollar stadiums.

Allen, Texas is currently building a $59.6 million football stadium for its high school, which serves 3900 students.

According to Business Insider, the arena will feature a video scoreboard, four concession stands, and 18,000 seats.

It’s slated to open in late 2012, but first the city needs to come up with its $60 million.

Check out the details of Eagle Stadium in the city’s bond proposal here.
