Texans love high school football and doing things big.
And Tomball ISD is celebrating the completion of a big new stadium.
“Right now, this is far larger than what we’ve had,” said superintendent, Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora.
She gave KHOU 11 News a sneak peek of the facility she had a hand in designing.
“This stadium has the capacity of 10,000 currently and can go up to 12,000,” said Salazar-Zamora. “It has state-of-the-art collegiate turf.”
The stadium was part of a $275 million bond package approved in 2017.
It was delayed a bit due to weather and post Harvey-related regulations.
But it’s opening in time for football season followed by soccer and shares a 150-acre site with new elementary and junior high schools.
“This stadium is far above anything I’ve personally experienced,” said bond program manager Robert Wilbanks with architectural engineering firm Lockwood, Andrews and Newnam.
