Toledo Public Schools broke ground today on a new football stadium at Scott High School.

Both Woodward and Scott high schools have been without football stadiums or tracks for years. The district broke ground earlier this month on the Woodward stadium. Both facilities are expected to be ready for the fall football season.

Scott’s new stadium will go behind its renovated Collingwood Boulevard home.

The district has budgeted $1.1 million for each stadium. Private funds will be needed for each stadium to have everything desired in the projects. Scott kicked off its fund-raising effort at today‘s groundbreaking ceremony.

Both fields will be turf, and the Woodward project includes a track, though Scott’s will initially be without one. Scott’s stadium likely will have a concession stand and stadium seating capacity for 500 home fans and 250 visitors.

Editor‘s note: This story reflects updated bleacher numbers. TPS originally gave a higher number, but construction bids ended up lower.
