When high school football season kicks off in three weeks, more brand new stadiums will open around Texas.

Last season, Katy ISD caused a stir when they opened the $70.3 million Legacy Stadium – which is the most expensive high school football stadium in the state. Cy-Fair ISD’s Berry Center cost $80 million in 2006, but it also includes a 9,500-seat arena and 456-seat theater to go along with the football stadium.

KATY’S STADIUM: A look inside Katy’s $70 million football stadium

This season, a new stadium that will rival Katy’s is set to open in McKinney. It’s slated to cost $69.9 million, but since the finishing touches still are being put on the stadium, there isn’t a final cost yet put on the construction.
