On Friday, Sept. 13, Cincinnati Public Schools will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration for the new Stargel Stadium in the West End. 

The former Stargel Stadium was demolished last year to make way for FC Cincinnati's forthcoming Major League Soccer stadium

The new 3,000-seater state-of-the-art Stargel is located at 501 Ezzard Charles Drive and cost $10 million. It will host football, track and field events and other activities for Aiken, Hughes, Riverview, Shroder, Gamble and Taft high schools — including Taft's Drone Club — and features a new scoreboard, weight room and locker rooms.

The celebration kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 13, with a ribbon cutting at 6 p.m. A football game between the Taft High School Senators and Withrow High School Tigers takes place at 7 p.m. Both marching bands will be at the ceremony and game.

The first 200 guests will receive a free T-shirt; the first 100 will receive free towels. Kona Ice will be on hand giving out free snacks to kids and Skyline Chili will be handing out free coneys.
