Cotton Bowl Stadium

  • 1300 Robert B. Cullum Boulevard
  • Dallas,TX 75210
  • (214) 670-8400

The Cotton Bowl Stadium opened in 1930.  It was named the Fair Park Stadium because it is located inside Fair Park which is home to the State Fair of Texas.  Today's Cotton Bowl Stadium is an exciting sports venue that is larger and more sophisticated than ever before.   A $57 million makeover in the 2000s has resulted in an arena that is the ninth largest football stadium in the United States, with 92,100 seats.

Some things about the Cotton Bowl Stadium haven't changed, however. It still offers the excitement of the Red River Showdown between the University of Texas football team and the University of Oklahoma football team. Not to mention the energy and showmanship found in the battles waged by the football teams and marching bands of Grambling State University and Prairie View A&M University in the Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic.
