Cotton Bowl Stadium

3750 The Midway
Dallas, TX 75210

Cotton Bowl Stadium has been an iconic part of Dallas since its opening in 1932. This stadium, best known for its football, has been home to the SMU Mustangs, the Dallas Cowboys, the annual Red River Rivalry game between the University of Texas Longhorns and the University of Oklahoma Sooners, the annual State Fair Classic game between the Grambling State University Tigers and the Prairie View A&M University Panthers, and The Cotton Bowl Classic. However, the 9th largest stadium in the United States does not focus solely on football. It has hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup, the Gold Cup Games, MLS soccer, and a number of concerts like Elvis Presley and The Rolling Stones. This legendary facility demonstrated its commitment to remaining a world class facility by going through a set of renovations in 2008 that replaced all of the seating, added a new state of the art video board, an exterior facade, and a brand new surface.
