WINDBER, Pa. (AP) - A southwestern Pennsylvania high school’s football team that can’t play at its own structurally unsafe stadium will play four “home” games at another rural district more than 11 miles away.

The Shade-Central City School Board in Somerset County voted Monday to charge the Windber Area School District $500 for each game.

Windber’s stadium is undergoing $23 million worth of renovations after their school board deemed the stadium unsafe last week.

The (Somerset) Daily American (http://bit.ly/16sjTaV ) says Windber will play its “home” games on Saturday, so it won’t conflict with Shade’s Friday night home games.

Only one Shade board member opposed the move, saying the district should charge $1,000 per game to cover maintenance costs.

The districts have yet to decide how or whether to divvy up concession stand profits.

The schools are about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
