SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A stadium in Shreveport frequently used for sporting events will not be open this season.

Lee Hedges Stadium, located in Captain Shreve High at 6115 E Kings Hwy., is now closed and will not be used for the entire 2023 high school football season.

This comes right before the venue was scheduled to undergo renovations.

According to Caddo Parish Public Schools, the 2023 Football schedule changes come to ensure the safety of the students, employees, and community members. District staff has made a plan for the games to be moved to an alternative site.

Renovations include improvements to the restrooms, locker rooms, and other areas of the facility.

“Patrons can look forward to an immediate improvement to the game-day experience,” says a statement from Caddo Parish Public Schools.

New football schedule:

KSLA Sports Director Chris Demirdjian will be speaking with coaches to find out their plans for home games this season.
