I'm sure this is how most of our stadiums looked like. Mine was just a little bigger. Only game that people actually went to was homecoming games and that was more of a socializing event where people hardly payed attention to the game.
But that was just my school. Florida can be pretty loyal to their high school football teams. Every small town and large city has their schools with a real following.

This is my personal favorite that I've been to. My high school, although the best HS football program in the state, did not have a home stadium. It was a downer sometimes.

Although this is a collegiate facility, the Tigres Juvenil, a public high school associated with Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, use this facility:

Estadio Gaspar Mass, Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico


In Mexico, more specifically the National Student High School Football League, all of the teams are affiliated with local colleges. The High School games are played in the spring, and the college teams play in the fall.

It's for all high schools in the Cypress, Texas area. I'm only 20 miles away from it and I go to that town for everything (since nothing is here where I currently am) but I haven't seen it up close yet.

There's another one like it in Katy (also suburban Houston) and it even hosts the Southland Conference tournament games.

Am I the only one who sees how wrong it is to spend millions on these facilities while students who study cant get that millions of dollars on new books, equipments etc?

Unless you can honestly tell me they can raise money by high school sports spectators alone.

These are usually built with bond money(meaning the area voted on the use of bonds) and maintained by booster club and stadium revenues from season tickets, concessions and video board ad revenue. Playoff games are especially huge money makers. Texas schools are funded from totally different sources.

These would be pretty exceptional through most of the country, though more common in Texas and the like. My high school (of about 2,100 students) for instance has a stadium that seats about 2,400 with a track, lights, scoreboard and minimal facilities. The gym seats about 1,200, which would be more common for many schools.

The same here in the Mid-Atlantic, with the exception of several private-school powerhouses. High school football is just part of the culture in Texas, as it is in some places in California, the Southeast, PA/OH.

This is my alma mater in Georgia, Milton High School. This is a more typical size, although it is probably much nicer than the average (and still not near as nice as these TX stadiums).



The school changed locations and facilities recently after I graduated. The new stadium is about 1/2 the size of the old one (a poor decision IMO since we'd be at ~50% capacity for years of mediocrity, and over capacity for our main rivalry game.) Both sets of stands are built into hills.

I graduated in a class of 700. There have been more schools constructed since then, so I'd assume the school has 2,500+ enrolled.

The stadium at my old school sits 3,100 and sometimes has games cancelled because of "excessive amounts of goose excrement on the playing surface". Usually more geese than people at the stadium anyway, probably one of the few schools where soccer outdraws football because the football team likes to go on several year long losing streaks (49 is their record, it was 50 something but another team cheated so we were retroactively given a win).

The Triad has some pretty big stadiums though.

My HS in WV had about 1800 students when I was there and an 8000 - 9000 seat stadium, which was usually filled around 60 - 75% except for my freshman year when we were really good and it was more like 90% and my junior year when we were really bad and it was more like 45%.

The BBall team plays at a city owned arena which seats around 5000 and its usually a near sellout since the team is alway a state title contender.
