Architectural plans for the stadium were revealed at a board meeting late last year, and the SISD board of trustees discussed plans last month for a veterans memorial at the stadium site.
The ceremony this Saturday begins at 9:30 a.m. at 23802 Cypresswood Drive, Spring.
Speakers at the event, which also includes entertainment and appearances by student athletes, will be SISD Superintendent Rodney Watson, board President Rhonda Newhouse and Westfield High School graduate Tony Ugoh, an NFL Super Bowl champion, according to an SISD news release.
“This stadium was made possible by voters who turned out to support our Bond 2016, so we are very excited to be able to share this milestone with the entire Spring ISD community,” Watson said in the release. “We’re looking forward to this facility serving our district and community for generations to come.”
Here are some key things to know about the stadium, according to SISD:
- It is built on a 117-acre piece of land off Cypresswood Drive and south of Burchett Elementary School.
- The stadium features turf field and seating for 8,000 people.
- A 19,650-square-foot field house includes locker rooms and athletic offices.
- A 6,300-square-foot community room in the field house includes seating for 300.
The stadium is expected to open in 2019, according to district officials.
Parking for the Saturday event is limited, and a shuttle bus will be provided from Bailey Middle School, 3377 James Leo Drive, Spring, beginning at 8:45 a.m., according to SISD.
Editor's note: The stadium capacity was originally listed as 8,500, but that number was corrected by the school district on Sept. 6.
