Allen HS [PHOTO\VIDEO] 60 million stadium unsafe, A $60 million stadium is unsafe at Allen High School in Texas. Eagle Stadium opened in 2012 and was in use for only two years.

The 18,000-seat facility will be closed for games this fall due to design flaws & concrete cracking in the structure.
It sprawls over 72 acres, has a 3,300-square-foot high-definition scoreboard and a three-story press box and is surrounded by 5,000 parking spaces.

Cracking at the stadium was first discovered in February after engineers have found design deficiencies at the concourse level.

Designer PBK Architects and stadium builder Pogue Construction are working with the Allen, Texas, school district to find a solution.

Allen, the reigning Class 5A Division I state champion, will instead play three "home" games at two stadiums in nearby Plano. Allen will pay Plano $5,300 for each game.

The preliminary findings were first reported Tuesday by The Dallas Morning News, which obtained the documents through an open-records request. Go here for more and video.
