KATY, Texas - A new $72 million high school football stadium is ready for kickoff this season in Katy, Texas.
The 12,000-seat Legacy Stadium is the most expensive high school football stadium ever built and will be shared by eight local high schools. It boasts a massive video screen, huge locker rooms, restrooms and concession stands.
The stadium was voted on and paid for by taxpayers in the area, according to NBC News.
“It’s something that this community wanted,” Katy ISD superintendent Lance Hindt told KTRK. “I don’t think the cost was anything that they really looked into.”
The stadium’s first game is slated for Aug. 31.
