A new home football stadium is currently on its way to Cypress High starting in October of 2023. The planned completion date is October 2024.  The cost is approximately ten million dollars, which will be paid for by the Anaheim Union High School District. A few things to expect from this huge renovation are artificial turf for the soccer and football fields, an all weather track, a JV softball field, bleachers that will hold up to around 1500 people, lights, and a new irrigation/sprinkler system.

During the construction process, it’s anticipated that Cypress will be using Lexington Junior High and Lexington Park for soccer games and other lower-level athletic events. It’s possible that Handel Stadium would still be the home stadium for bigger games such as Homecoming, but more Varsity games will be held on this new field when completed. “I’ve pushed for this for many years, many people have. I’m just glad it’s finally happening now, and we could finally have facilities to be proud of,” Coach Feldman commented.

Other schools such as Western High and Anaheim High are expected to receive similar renovations this year. “We’re the only district left in our surrounding districts that doesn’t have turf fields,” Athletic Directors Mr. Pfeiffer and Mr. Slevcove mentioned. They said that being the last district adds some community pressure, but “it takes a long time to get a project like this going.” 

This new stadium will be a huge improvement to Cypress High’s athletic facilities. It will be able to host more games, and will be able to hold more spectators, and the Centurions will finally have a home stadium to really call home.
