The Dallas Cowboys are an East Division NFC team that stands for a lot more than just football in Texas. The Cowboys are an iconic representation of the state and the Dallas-Fort Worth region as a whole. Home games are played at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and bring in up to 80,000 spectators per game. The Cowboys are so popular they have been given the nickname, “America’s Team.” Whether you are a native Texan or just visiting, catching a game and taking in the energy should be at the top of your list. Buying tickets, arranging transportation, and figuring out parking are important steps in preparing for game day.
Finding tickets for a Cowboys game is fairly easy. There are many online resources available to game goers. The first place to look is through a trusted seller like Ticketmaster. Through Ticketmaster, seats can be purchased for an entire season or for one game at a time. Single game day tickets can range from $80.00 to $1,000.00, depending on the location and accommodations that come with. The NFL website offers a ticket exchange where fans can interact and discuss buying/selling already-purchased tickets. It is verified and secured through Ticketmaster. Other sites to check out are StubHub or SeatGeek. If you really are attempting a last minute attendance, Craig’s List is an option, but one that should be approached cautiously as there are a lot of scams out there. AT&T Stadium was designed with fans in mind. It sits 50 feet below street level, and non-traditonal seating that gives more space to attendees. Another notable feature is the stadium’s giant videoboard. It hovers 90 feet over the center of the field, and runs from one 25 yard line to the other, making every play visible and with great clarity.
As far as parking goes, unless your ticket specifically mentions it, if you plan to park at the stadium, an additional parking pass must be purchased. If you plan to tailgate, you must also purchase a specific parking pass to do so. ParkHub is a great resource for finding parking as it takes into account both on-site and off-site options, finding you better options and prices. Unfortunately, due to the stadium being outside of the city, mass transit is not a readily available option for getting to the game. However, charter buses like Bowl Bus do offer rides back and forth for a fee. Many people take cabs or shuttles out if they do not have their own transportation.
Football season kicks off at the best time of year. The weather is changing, fans are in great spirits, and the energy is all around.
