I thought all the sports fans out there might be interested in the new Cowboys stadium in Arlington, TX. My family has had season tickets since the Cowboys were at the Cotton Bowl and we had our appointment last Friday with the Dallas Cowboys to pick our seats at the new stadium in Arlington. We drove to the new stadium location and visited their preview center with our sales counselor.
Here is the stadium currently under construction. The stadium is really big! It won't be ready until the Fall of 2009.
If you live in Dallas, you have probably heard how expensive the seats are. All the lower level seating between the goal lines in considered club seating and is priced between $150,000 - $16,000 per seat for the licenses. Yes, I typed that correctly! These are not suites and those prices are only for the seat licenses. You still have to purchase the season tickets ($340 per seat for each game) and $750 for parking! The most expensive seats are $150,000 per seat for 50 yard line seats!
Our current seats at Texas Stadium are on the 25 yard line and at the new stadium they wanted us to pay $35,000 per seat for our 4 seats. No way!! So, we had to give up our seats and get back in line in hopes for getting seats in the $16K range which means seats from the goal line to the 20 yard line. This process seems really unfair to me. My Mom and my family have been loyal fans for over 40 years and we don't get to choose our seats until this first slotting process in done since we gave up our $35,000 seats. They are not giving any consideration for long-time Cowboys fans. If anyone thought Jerry Jones cares about the average fan, he doesn't!!
When we visited the Cowboys preview center, they had a model of the stadium so we could see how it is suppose to look when completed. The roof is missing from the model so we could see the inside, so keep that mind. The roof will be closed if the temperature outside in below 60 degrees or above 80 degrees. That should make games much more enjoyable compared to the hot and stuffy Texas Stadium.
