60 million dollar high school stadium?

Post by Rids » Thu Apr 15, 2010 5:54 am

Got this in my inbox today:

Ground will be broken next month on a new $59.6 million stadium outside of Dallas. For high school football. It will seat 18,000 in two decks and feature a video scoreboard, four concession stands and 12 bathrooms. It will probably host its first game in 2012, but it will probably never host anything like the game between Plano East and John Tyler back in 1994.

Here's the PDF of the brochure for what appears to be the bond initiative:

So, 135 million dollars for a 33,000 seat stadium in Winnipeg seems right on the mark then.

Wow, reading the PDF, they have 1,000 seats reserved just for the BAND.
I helped pay for it, I'm calling it "Skydome."
