Alvin ISD’s New $41 million dollar stadium is set to open its doors for the first time on August 30, 2018 when the Manvel Mavericks take on the Clear Lake Falcons.

Freedom Field was apart of the $245 million school bond package passed by voters in 2015.

The stadium will hold 10,000 people but can go up to 12,000.

“You may find stadiums that are bigger, but you won’t find one that’s nicer,” Robert Wilcox, Director of Facilities, said.

The stadium has two locker rooms each able to hold 70-plus players. The reaction to the stadium has been positive from the Manvel community.

“I believe if you're gonna do something, you do it right,” Manvel head coach Kevin Hall said. “This district did this stadium right. It is a ‘show place.’ It shows how much pride Alvin ISD has in its football programs.”

The stadium will be hosts to the Manvel Mavericks and the Shadow Creek Sharks.

“It will give the fans a closer view to the field and it will create an amazing atmosphere for the players, cheerleaders, band and fans,” Wilcox said.

The state-of-the-art stadium is set to be home to Manvel and Shadow Creek for years to come.

The Alvin community is buzzing with excitement in anticipation for the August 30 premiere of the stadium. Rest assured that Hokay Hey and Shark Nation will be ready.

Joey Allender will be a freshman at Manvel HS in the Fall and is a member of the VYPE U Ambassador Program. To learn more about how you can become a VYPE U Ambassador at your school...

Over the weekend, the Patriots were fined $1.1M and lost a third round pick for the team's role in videotaping the Bengals sideline during a game against the Browns last season. The punishment was just a side note in a bigger headline in their signing of Cam Newton. How is it that the Patriots continue to get caught cheating and yet somehow don't receive criticism in the same way that the Astros do? Check out the video as we try to explain why the coverage feels different.
