NEW CANEY - New Caney Independent School District’s (NCISD) new 8,500-seat, $20 million Texan Drive Stadium is complete.

The new stadium features two identical double-decked bleacher flights on the east and west sides of the turf field. A multi-story press box with luxury suites rises above the west set of bleachers.

The crown jewel of the stadium is Texas’ largest video board in high school football, located behind the south end zone: a 1,400-sf freestanding video board that will be operated by the D.R.E.A.M. team — a group of specially trained NCISD students.

The stadium also features a community room overlooking the field with capacity for 500 in lecture style seating and 350 banquet style, identical locker rooms and a fully functional commercial kitchen.

The stadium was built with funds approved in the 2012 bond election that also built facilities like the Agricultural Sciences building, Woodridge Forest Middle School, the New Caney JROTC and dance hall building and the soon-to-be-completed Tavola Elementary.

The stadium’s official grand opening celebration is September 12 at 7 p.m.
