Chaminade Julienne is unveiling its new stadium this weekend.

Tonight, CJ will host Kid’s Night Under the Lights — an invitation-only event for all students who participated in a CJ Eagles Summer Camp and sixth-grade students from around the Miami Valley.

The event begins at 7:30 p.m., with activities both at Roger Glass Stadium and the Student Conditioning Center, located across the street from the stadium.

On Saturday, there will be a public grand opening at Roger Glass Stadium, with Soccer Day at CJ.

Both the girls and boys soccer teams are scheduled to play, starting at 1 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting set for 4:30 p.m.

The first home football game is Aug. 26.

The $6 million facility features a practice field, stadium seating that holds more than 2,100 people, and a 99,600-square-foot stadium field at the corners of Longworth and Eaker streets designed to host high school football, soccer and lacrosse competitions, as well as professional soccer matches.
