Everything You Need to Know About AT&T Stadium

by Leap on January 9, 2024

The home of America's Team, AT&T Stadium seats the largest amount of people out of any other venue used by the NFL. Replacing the partially covered Texas Stadium which hosted Dallas Cowboy games from 1971 to 2008, "Jerry World" can be seen from over five miles away from downtown Dallas or Fort Worth. Fans flock to this masterpiece of a stadium year-round for concerts, basketball games, soccer, college and high school football games, rodeos, motocross, Spartan Races, professional wrestling and more. Here's everything you need to know about AT&T Stadium!

Overview of AT&T Stadium

Affectionately nicknamed "The Death Star" (taken from the "Star Wars" franchise) due to its massive size, AT&T Stadium was completed in May 2009 after three years of construction. With its retractable roof, massive video display —the largest HDTV screen in the world at its installation — and state-of-the-art facilities, it's one of the most impressive sports venues in the world. The 26 interchangeable panels on its football turf field allow the stadium to host a variety of events, such as concerts, dirt bike races, monster truck rallies, college football games, basketball games and soccer games.

The NFL's Dallas Cowboys call this massive arena home. It is also the home to major football-centered events such as the Cotton Bowl Classic, the Big 12 Championship Game, and the Southwest Classic.

Because of its size and versatility, the AT&T Stadium hosts several events in addition to sports games — including the Monster Jam events,  Copa América soccer games and Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks' 2024 Tour.

Location of AT&T Stadium

AT&T Stadium is located at One AT&T Way in Arlington, TX. Taxis are available at the far west end of Miller LiteHouse off of North Collins Street and Cowboys Way and are staged at this location for drop-off pre-event and pick up post-event. If you're using a rideshare service, the drop-off location for this season is Lot 15.

Parking at AT&T Stadium

There are approximately 12,000 parking spaces distributed among 15 numbered lots at AT&T Stadium. (If needed, there are also 12,000 parking spots in lettered lots around the Texas Rangers Ballpark that may be used on event days). Your parking pass is valid only for the lot designated on the pass. Parking lots generally open five hours before a Cowboys game.

As you approach the stadium, there will be additional highway, street and electronic signs directing you along your route and to your parking lot entrance. Upon entering the appropriate lot, you'll be directed to a parking spot by an attendant. If you wish to park near a friend, both parties must have passes for the same lot and arrive together. Parking spots can't be reserved or saved for guests arriving at a later time.

Accessible parking spaces are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Your vehicle must have a valid parking pass for the designated lot and a state-issued placard or license plate to park in one of these spaces.

Seating at AT&T Stadium

When it comes to sporting events, the best seats are going to be located in the Club Level close to the 50-yard line. Many Cowboys fans will tell you that the 200-level club seats reign supreme since they're high enough up to see the entire field but are also far enough back to have a full view of the giant video board. Regardless of which club level you sit in, you'll have access to the same lounges and amenities, which include wider cushioned seats and upscale food and drink. If you're on a budget, spring for a seat in the 200-level end zone. These seats give you a panoramic view that allows you to see how each play takes shape.

For concerts, the best seat can vary depending on personal preference and the specific layout of the stage. Floor seating will provide you with an immersive experience, offering proximity to the performers and a direct view of the stage whereas lower-level sections — especially those near the center of the stage — will provide a balanced view and excellent sound quality. Club-level seats will provide a more exclusive and premium concert experience. In contrast, lower rows in the upper level offer a broader perspective of the entire production — including lighting effects and video screens.
