The biggest football game of the year is less than a month away (February 6). With all of the tourists that will be in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, it’s high time we know a thing or two about the stadium watched around the world.
Because we make Dallas deliveries throughout the Metroplex, our Dallas box truck courier team and general courier team watched the stadium being built from start to finish. What an engineering feat! And if you have had the privilege of going to the stadium, then you know it is quite cool. I went for the U2 concert, and it was amazing to see the building from the inside. Now, I admit that 1.15 billion dollar stadium is outrageous, but I can’t deny its awesomeness!
Because there will be lots of people talking the stadium in the coming months, here are some facts from our Dallas delivery route team.
The stadium officially opened June 6, 2009 to the tune of a George Strait concert. But things were in motion long before the opening. In August of 2006, work was beginning and plans were well underway. Today, the stadium boasts 3 million square feet, a retractable roof which can open/close within 12 minutes, 86 foot high glass walls, and an outrageously huge video screen smack dab in the middle of the field. There is also the Party Pass allows standing-room-only options for those who may not be able to afford seats.
All in all, the stadium’s capacity is approximately 100,000. Concerts, rodeos, Monster truck shows, boxing, college football games, the NBA Allstar Game – this stadium can handle it all! It was designed by HKS Sports and Entertainment Group, and is a catch-all for Dallas/Fort Worth events.
