Burkburnett ISD will not host any home football games this year at Bulldog Stadium after inspections found issues with the pipe supports that hold up the concrete bleachers.
The district explained in a social media post that inspections had been done over the summer on the stadium’s infrastructure. Results came back finding those supports had “large scale corrosion” and that they were “rusting inside and out.” It goes on to say an “engineer reported several of the supports could experience failure soon, leading to a complete failure of the infrastructure. The engineer’s professional opinion is to not put any crowds in our bleachers until many improvements and repairs have been made.”
