Valdosta - An improved stadium is ready for football season in Winnersville.

Valdosta Wildcat fans got their first look at the newly renovated Bazemore Hyder Stadium Thursday night. It features larger dressing and rest rooms, a state of the art press box, an astro turf field, and a museum full of Valdosta football history.

The 7.2 million dollar project took just eight months to complete.

"The community is very excited, they've been taking a big part in this stadium, and it is their stadium because it was paid for with SPLOST dollars," said Ricky Rowe, School Board Member.

The Wildcats will play their first game on the field Friday night versus Shiloh High School.
