Stadium Field has been cleared for occupancy.
That's the ruling from Mark Stewart of the West Virginia Fire Marshal's office.
One final inspection.
That's all that remains before Stadium Field is ready for some football.
Stadium Field committee member Joe Weaver tells us inspectors were at the site Thursday morning, and that, so far, everything is ready for the first actual Parkersburg Big Reds home game Friday night.
In the words of the athletic department, all that remains are a few things that need to be bolted down.
That final inspection is set for Friday morning.
The Stadium Field bleachers were condemned late last year.
Parkersburg High School's first scheduled home game was moved to Marietta last month while renovation work on the bleachers was still in progress.
Parkersburg High School Stadium Field Renovations will be ready for Friday's game.
There was a moment when many thought Parkersburg High School would not be able to play home games at Stadium Field this year but this Friday, they will.
"Well the great news is on Friday night, September 20th, we are going to play our first home game of the season against Capital here at Stadium Field," said Head Football Coach Don Reeves.
The news about Friday's game is all the football players and cheerleaders can talk about.
"Ah it feels great coming home, first home game of the season, in the new stadium I think it is going to be a great game," said Varsity Football Player, Melvin Stubbs.
"Oh it's really exciting. Everyone just gets ready for Friday night football, it's the best thing that happens in Parkersburg," said Varsity Cheerleader, Elle Asbury.
"We've been waiting for this to get done. A couple months ago, we didn't know if we were going to get to play here, it's good to know we are going to get to play at home," Varsity Football Player, Aaron Roberts.
Athletic director Lori Lowers says, this could not have happened without the community support.
"We were able to make this because we had some community members who stepped in and helped us do the fund raising because our biggest issue was money. We were running out of money to complete the project, if they hadn't of, we would not have had any home football games here this season, which would have been devastating to our student athletes and to the community," said Lowers.
The Stadium Field committee says they are excited and thankful to the community and looking towards the next step in the renovation process.
"The next step after Friday is to rest for a couple of days, and then evaluate the visitors side and get it open as soon as possible especially for next years play," said Joe Weaver, Stadium Field Committee spokesperson.
So far the renovation process has completed just the home side of the bleachers.
"We still have a pretty big loan that the stadium committee, a $600,000 loan we need to pay off, but ya know we have already started talking about the visitors side. It is definitely going to have to be completed as well, but right now we are thrilled just to be able to play here Friday night," said Lowers.
With the community behind them, The Big Reds are more than ready for Friday night.
