Valdosta - A South Georgia football team will soon have a new playing field.

Construction is almost complete on the new and improved Valdosta High Stadium. The multi-million dollar renovations include larger dressing and restrooms, a state of the art press box, and more comfortable seating.

"The only thing that's not brand new is the shell of the north bleachers, everything under it was cleared out and repainted, we'll be using that as a warehouse, but everything else in the stadium is new," said Bill Aldrich.

Project supervisors hope construction will be finished by the Wildcats' first home game on August 20th.

The 7.2 million dollar renovation project is paid for with local option sales tax revenue.
