COLLEGE STATION -- Tigerland's 7.7 million dollar upgrade is starting to take shape at A&M Consolidated High School. First built in 1989, Tigerland stadium is getting its first face life that will include increasing the size of the existing football field house by 4,200 square feet.
The expansion will allow visiting teams to dress out next to the stadium instead of having to cross Welsh Street to access their locker room.
The old field house adjacent to the softball field has been demolished and a new 5,100 square foot building has been constructed in what will be used for a multipurpose facility and will be home to several sports including softball and soccer.
In addition to 26,000 square feet in dressing, training, and offices, the pressbox at Tigerland stadium is now handicap accessible with the installation of an elevator.
The most visible change at the stadium is the newly completed installation of a brand new "Field Turf" surface.
There will also be a new surface on the 8 lane running track circling the football field and CSISD officials consulted Texas A&M head track coach Pat Henry on what the best surface would be.
