(Maumee, OH) There's a groundbreaking set today for a football stadium rebuilding project at Maumee High School.
Richard Kazmaier Stadium was first built in 1961 and will get a $2.6 million facelift between now and the fall football season.
The improvements will include a new turf field replacing the current grass field, new locker rooms and restrooms for both the home team and visitors side, new entryways, lighting, and fencing, and better parking.
Those renovations are being privately funded through the Panther Pride Foundation, which launched a public donation campaign at the homecoming game last fall. The groundbreaking ceremony starts at 4 p.m. at the football stadium.
