It was standing-room-only at the ribbon cutting and grand opening of Grapevine-Colleyville ISD’s newly renovated Mustang Panther Stadium.

Superintendent Robin Ryan designated March 22 as an important and historical day during a short ceremony before the ribbon cutting for the stadium. The stadium welcomed the community during the girls’ and boys’ soccer games, the first to be held at the stadium.

"Today the new Mustang Panther Stadium is a state-of-the-art facility that fits into the architecture that runs up and down Highway 26 with the dark brick, the towering archways and the nostalgic feel," Ryan said.

More importantly, he said, the fan experience has also been enhanced with the renovations that included improved accessibility for all spectators, upgraded concession stands and spirit shops, a new press box and a new scoreboard with upgraded sound system and technology.

Ryan also pointed out how the stadium heralds the future while also honoring the past. The renovated stadium features a Hall of Champions to honor all state championship teams from GCISD and a Walk of Honor recognizing individuals who have served the school district.
