The sounds of hammering and heavy machinery will soon be replaced by the cheers of the crowd at the new Stargel Stadium.

The stadium seemed to appear overnight in the west end.

"It's basically what we had; bigger, better and exciting for what we can bring to the community," said Cincinnati Public Schools athletic manager Josh Hardin.

The new stadium replaces the one torn down by the FC Cincinnati soccer team to build its new facility.

Hardin looks across the new field and sees the future.

"I see lots of wins, playoff wins and playoff games," Hardin said from the 50-yard line.

The first practice on the field is expected by the end of July. The first game is set for August 29. A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for September 13.
