Allen Eagle Stadium holds up the cliche that everything is bigger in Texas. Allen High School’s new football stadium seats 18,000 people and cost $59.6 million to construct.
The stadium was part of a $119 million bond passed by 63 percent of voters in the suburban Dallas school district in 2009.
It’s not all about football — the stadium has indoor golf and wrestling facilities, too, and part of the bond funded a performing arts center.
You can find more photos of the stadium here.
It’s safe to say we’ll never see such a stadium built in Western Washington — unless Chris Hansen feels a sudden urge to build prep sports venues. Heck, I’m impressed by eight-year-old Mount Tahoma Stadium, site of Star Track, and it’s giant new video board.
