Everything is bigger in Texas…

McKinney, Texas, will be the proud owner of the priciest high school football stadium in the country after a bond proposal for a new $62.8 million stadium project passed with 63 percent of the vote on Monday.

The new stadium will cost $50.3 million with another $12.5 million being allocated for roads, sewage and other infrastructure costs needed.

It will seat 12,000 and also function as an event center for the city. The renderings for the stadium show how incredible it will be.

An anti-bond group, Grassroots McKinney, opposed the $220 million bond, which also included band hall expansions at local middle schools in McKinney and a new auditorium at one of the high schools.

“We’re disappointed,” Mike Giles, a leader of Grassroots McKinney, toldthe Dallas Morning News. “But the people have spoken.”

It’s quite the high school football stadium, and it will be built four miles away from Eagle Stadium in Allen, Texas, which seats 18,000 people and was previously the most expensive high school stadium in the country.

According to CNBC, tickets cost $8 in McKinney and Allen’s district, Carroll said. For a school like Allen, that can mean upward of $144,000 in revenue per game just for filling the seats. Some games draw standing-room only crowds, too.
