Last phase of Spartan Stadium to get underway

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN TWP., Ohio -

The turning of several shovelfuls of dirt will mark the beginning of the final phase of construction at Spartan Stadium in Boardman.

The Boardman Boosters and the Stadium Project Committee will hold an official groundbreaking for the 3rd phase of the project Wednesday, May 1, at 2:30 pm.

With completion expected by this fall, a third building will include boys and girls locker rooms with a total of 134 lockers, a formal front façade with donor wall, concessions with eating area, public restrooms, and ticket booths.

The work should be completed by this fall.

“The Boardman Athletic Boosters are committing $800,000 to this phase 3 which will take our total of privately raised funds to nearly $3 million,” said booster president Bruce Flyak.

Fundraising for the project continues with locker and brick campaigns.
