Hellas Sports Construction continues work on $60 million Eagles football stadium

Hellas Sports Construction is continuing work on the new $60 million football stadium at Allen Independent School District in Allen, in the US state of Texas. The Eagles football stadium features a college-style coliseum with the sunken bowl design with a seating capacity of 18,000 people. The stadium will feature over 90,000 square feet of Matrix turf with permanent lines for football and soccer and CushDrain elastic shock pad for improved shock absorption and drainage.

Other facilities include a two-tier press box, a high-definition video replay scoreboard, outdoor plazas, a Wall of Honor, a training room for the wrestling team and an indoor golf practice area. Upon completion in July 2012, the Class 5A powerhouse will have the largest high school football stadium dedicated to one team in the state of Texas. The stadium is part of the $119 million bond initiative that passed in May 2009, which includes a new fine art auditorium and transportation service centre for the district.
