Engineers identified seven major structural problems at the stadium in Allen.  The findings are in a report compiled by a forensics company for the Allen Independent School District.  The district superintendent said repairs would begin as early as July, with the goal of reopening the stadium in time for graduation in 2015. 


It cost taxpayers 60 million dollars to build the stadium in Allen.  


The district says repairs could cost 600 thousand dollars or more.
