Eagle Stadium is a football stadium in Allen, Texas.

It is owned and operated by the Allen Independent School District. It is home of the Allen High School Eagles.

It opened on August 31, 2012 with a non-district matchup between Allen and Southlake Carroll, who at the time was the defending 5A state champion. In a mild upset, Allen prevailed 24-0 en route to its own state title later that year. The Eagles are undefeated to date (11-0) when playing in Eagle Stadium.

Eagle Stadium is notable (and controversial) for its size (it has a capacity of 18,000 spectators, the fifth largest high school stadium in Texas, and the largest which serves as home field for only one high school) and its cost of completion (just under USD $60 million).[1] The 18,000 seats include 9,000 home-side seats (including 1,000 reserved for the Allen Escadrille), 4,000 end-zone seats for students and general admission (located in the north end zone), and 5,000 visitor-side seats.

Beneath the stadium there are areas for wrestling, a golf simulator practice area, and a weight room.

Beginning in February 2013, the stadium became the home of the Texas vs The Nation college football all-star bowl game.[2]
