Community Day at Serpentini Stadium - August 27th

Community Invited to Take A First Look at

New Serpentini Chevrolet Stadium on August 27

  The North Royalton City Schools and the North Royalton Stadium Foundation invite the community to an Open House of the new Serpentini Chevrolet Stadium at Gibson Field on Saturday, August 27 from 10am-1pm. 

Residents will be able to see the stadium’s new synthetic turf, eight-lane competitive track, stadium seating, press box, ADA compliant restrooms, concession stands, walkways, fencing, wheelchair accessible ramping, and beautiful landscaping.  

Thevisitor side stands have been expanded from 800 seats to 2,000 seats. The east side home stands now have 3000 seats.  The project has taken only took seven months to complete and began with the demolition of stands this past January.  The project was completed without a tax increase and no use of operational funds.  Private contributions and pledges now total almost $1.2 million dollars.

 This community stadium is quite a jewel for the North Royalton school community.  We now have a stadium that can host more than 200 school and community events rather than a handful of dates. However, I am most proud of HOW it happened.  This endeavor was truly indicative of North Royalton community pride, effort, dedication and commitment. This is great to see a dream become a reality.

 The public will be able to purchase preferred seating for the upcoming football season at the new stadium.  Benefits include molded seat with back and arm rests, same seat for every game, seating between the 40-yard lines, and admission to all home games.  Price is $100 per seat per football season or three years for $250.

 Exciting plans are in place for the September 2 inaugural game.  The dedication, ribbon cutting, and thank you to all donors will occur before the game.  The dedication ribbon will be cut by Chuck Gibson and Bob Serpentini and the coin toss will be done by North Royalton Stadium Foundation Chairman Larry Vasil and Fundraising Chairman Jim Smith.  There will be a ceremonial ball for the kickoff, a special halftime band performance, and fireworks at the conclusion of the game.

 Special edition Serpentini Chevrolet Stadium t-shirts are now available for $12 in the athletic office to commemorate the inaugural game.
