Ratliff Stadium: Odessa, Texas
Ratliff Stadium seats 19,302 and has been called the "Epicenter of Texas High School Football." Built in 1982 at a cost of $5.6 million, Ratliff is the home to Odessa (Texas)
and Permian (Odessa, Texas)
Permian is a past national champion, and the program has been the subject of a book and the TV series "Friday Night Lights."
The stadium is totally wired for modern media exposure. All games are rebroadcast on public access channels in the Midland/Odessa market on Sunday afternoons, and sometimes playoff games are televised live.
All seats are reserved except for the student sections. The ticket booth has five windows, but the demand for tickets is so great that sometimes it never opens due to sellouts. It's not uncommon for fans to line up the night before to purchase tickets ahead for big games.
