Prosper's new football stadium will be named Children's Health Stadium at Prosper ISD, the hospital announced Wednesday morning.
Children's Health will provide care to students on and off the field and will support the district with a 10-year sponsorship. Students will receive athlete-centered sports medicine services and care to promote wellness and mitigate the risk and effect sports injuries have on athletes, the hospital said.
The hospital will also work closely with parents, coaches and athletic trainers to provide athletes with comprehensive medical, nutrition, sports performance, training, care and recovery services.

We are excited to form a long-term partnership with Prosper ISD and be the official pediatric health care partner for the children and families of Prosper as they grow."
The $48 million stadium has a 12,000 seat capacity and will serve all of the district's high schools, according to The Dallas Morning News. It opens in August.
