ANTIGO - Schofield Stadium in Antigo starting football games nearly a century ago.
The field is starting to show its age, and Robin football fans want to do something about it.
Chad Matuszewski has watched a lot of Robin football games here.
"There's just really a lot of tradition in Antigo football," Matuszewski said. "There's a lot of pride. We've had several state championship teams."
The more Matuszewski watched, the more he noticed what was wrong.
"We have a flat field with a lot of potholes in different elevations," Matuszewski said. "The main thing is to have a safe surface for the kids to play on."
Repairing the field would be enough of a task, but it's far from the only thing that needs fixing.
It's hard not to notice all the rust underneath the visitors' bleachers; a structure that hasn't been touched in decades.
"We're working with our local contractors to get this project scheduled for the spring," Matuszewski said.
Fixing the stadium won't be cheap and will take a team effort from the town.
"The consultant that we worked with on the field, they gave us a rough estimate of approximately $300,000," Matuszewski said. "We are really relying on the local community and the businesses as part of that."
Matuszewski is hopeful that the Friday Night Lights will shine on a new field next season.
"We've been very fortunate that we have a lot of great business owners that support our community and that are willing to come out and support projects like this," Matuszewski said.
Matuszewski said the gridiron club has been talking about this renovation for years.
The club has not found records of any major improvements to Schofield Stadium since it's construction.
