Plan to demolish Thorne Stadium; play in Spring for 2 years
ALDINE – Plans are underway for Aldine ISD to replace Thorne Stadium and build a new state-of-the-art facility that will open in August 2024. Thorne Stadium opened in 1979.
This news means that Aldine ISD football teams, bands, drill teams, and cheer squads will call George Stadium in Spring ISD home for the next two years. Spring ISD has partnered with Aldine ISD’s varsity football teams to play their home games at George Stadium.
“We know this news could be surprising to some of our students and families who have called Thorne home, but our new facility will be a place we will all be proud of in just a couple of years,” said Dre Thompson Aldine ISD’s Executive Director of Athletics. “I thank our neighbors for working with us to make this possible. Playing our home games in Spring will be a small challenge for all of us, but we will embrace providing our student-athletes, performing arts students, and this community the experience they deserve. It doesn’t matter where we play. It matters how we play!”
