Schafer Stadium Open House and Dedication

Schafer Stadium Open House and Dedication

Ottumwa Schools will open Schafer Stadium to the public on Thursday, August 24 from 4-6 p.m. to provide time for the public to see the completed renovation. The district will then host a dedication ceremony on Friday, August 25, during half time of the varsity football game.

The project included six separate components, including new bleachers on both the home and visitors sides; LED field lights; filling in the bowl and installing artificial field turf; upgrading the pavilion including the addition of public restrooms; renovation of the press box, both interior and exterior; and work on the embankments. 

Staff will be on hand to talk about the various aspects of the project.
