After further investigation, Alllen ISD says it won’t be a quick and easy fix.
"Our commitment to Allen students and taxpayers remains firm that the stadium be repaired properly at the expense of those responsible for the failure: the architect and the builder," superintendent Lance Hindt said.
The two-time defending 5A Division I Texas State Football Champions won’t get to enjoy its 18,000-seat palace this upcoming season as the Eagles will be forced to shuffle their schedule and play their home games in Plano.
"While we are extremely disappointed that the stadium will remain closed this fall, we recognize that our priority must be to provide a safe venue for our students and the public," Allen ISD Board of Trustees President Louise Master said.
The stadium was financed as part of a $119 million bond issue in 2009 and opened for the 2012 football season.
