AT&T Stadium is a retractable-roof stadium in Arlington, Texas, United States. It serves as the home of the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL) and was completed on May 27th, 2009. It is also the home of the Cotton Bowl Classic and the Big 12 Championship Game. The stadium is currently the world’s largest covered stadium with 80,000 seats.

AT&T Stadium hosts a variety of events including football and concerts. Construction of the stadium came at a huge cost of $1.15 billion. It was originally called the Cowboys Stadium until 2013 when it was renamed after Dallas-based telecommunications company AT&T who bought the naming rights.

The stadium’s retractable roof weighs in at an impressive 1.2 million pounds and has two arches that span 1,400 feet each. The jumbotron at the AT&T Stadium is the largest in the world and measures 72 feet tall by 160 feet wide, so large that it could fit 3,600 42-inch flat-screen TVs.

Dallas Cowboys Tickets

The Dallas Cowboys sell their tickets via SeatGeek.

Ticketmaster is the official ticket outlet for the NFL.

For most teams, Ticketmaster sells tickets on behalf of the team and resells tickets on behalf of ticket sellers. You can tell the difference on the site as the Blue dots are tickets from the team themselves, and the pink dots are from verified sellers.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown may have further selling platform fees added, so take time to read my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the team’s Mobile App to your phone as it contains much Gameday information for the stadium.
