Photos: This high school built their stadium on the roof of the school


Union City HS (NJ) is located in on of the most densely populated counties in America, so when it came time to build a football stadium in 2009, they had more than just a little trouble finding the space they needed.

That is, until they starting thinking outside the box.

Union City eventually decided to build their stadium on top of their high school, thus providing one of the most unique atmospheres in football, at any level.

Sure, balls occasionally find their way over the fence onto the streets below, and the fog may be a bit thicker at times, but this is one of the coolest stadiums I've ever seen.
