Everything is bigger in Texas—like high school football and how much money the public is willing to spend on building football stadiums for teenagers.

On Saturday, voters in McKinney, Texas, approved a $220 million bond that will allocate $50.3 million toward the construction of a 12,000-seat high school football stadium for the local school district, according to USA Today. The project will cost $62.8 million in total, with the remaining $12.5 million funded by another bond that was approved in 2000.

It will reportedly be the most expensive high school stadium built to date, less than five miles north of the $60 million one in Allen, Texas.
