You know the saying, “Everything is bigger in Texas”
Well, that applies to all levels of football football, and how much money the public is willing to spend on building stadiums for a High School stadium.
On Saturday, voters in McKinney, Texas, approved a $220 million bond that will allocate $50.3 million towards building a high school football stadium that will seat close to 12,000 people for the local school district, USA Today reports.
The project will cost $62.8 million in total, with the remaining $12.5 million funded by another bond that was approved in 2000.
The bond was approved with 63% of the vote.
District officials have said that along with football, the stadium will be used for soccer games and band competitions and could host sate playoff games.
The stadium will be the most expensive high school stadium built to date and is less than 5 miles from the stadium built in Allen, Texas that was worth $60 million.
