CULLMAN, AL (WAFF) - One north Alabama team will be playing all its games on the road due to unsafe bleachers.

The Fairview High School Aggies in Cullman County aren't allowed to play at their home stadium due to safety concerns.

The superintendent said the bleachers have shifted and there is a real risk of falling concrete.

The Aggies will play their game Friday night against Hanceville at the Cullman High School stadium.

Cullman County Superintendent Craig Ross believes the cost for making repairs will be about 2-million-dollars for the 60-year-old stadium.

Ross wants to be sure there are not other problems at other county athletic facilities and has ordered all them to be inspected.
