KILLEEN – The Killeen Independent School District released its revised 2014 football schedule, including the return of Thursday night football games at Leo Buckley Stadium.
Games previously scheduled to be played at Hood Stadium on Friday nights will now be played on Thursday at Leo Buckley Stadium with kickoff set for 7:00 p.m.
The Killeen ISD Board approved a 6-1 motion on July 8 to have the 2014 football schedule redone so all varsity games could be played at KISD’s Leo Buckley Stadium.
The district had an agreement with Fort Hood since 2012 to use Hood Stadium for home games on Friday nights, so teams didn’t have to play on Thursday nights.
Hood Stadium fees were approximately $4400 per game last year and KISD paid $39,458 for the nine varsity games played at Hood Stadium in 2013. The costs associated with playing football games at Leo Buckley Stadium are approximately 30 percent higher than the cost incurred at Hood Stadium.
