The first thing you’ll notice when arriving to the AT&T Stadium is its retractable roof, which is the one of the world’s largest domed sports structures and the largest single span roof structure. Here you’ll also find the world’s largest retractable end zones. And when the roof is closed, the venue becomes the largest enclosed NFL stadium ever built. As the saying goes, “everything is bigger in Texas.”
This is your first indication that AT&T Stadium is more than just a sports arena. While the stadium itself is a work of art with its stylish concourses and a facade of soaring arches and canted glass, you can also find an impressive contemporary art collection inside. Littered around the space are 55+ paintings, sculptures and photographs that enhance the aesthetics of the space. While in the Mina Concourse you’ll find football-themed works like Olafur Eliasson’s abstract sculpture “Moving Stars Takes Time,” Matthew Ritchie’s “Line of Play,” and Annette Lawrence’s “Coin Toss,” the Southwest Monumental Staircase is home to four striking murals in bold colors and patterns.
This being said, most people don’t go to AT&T Stadium just to admire the architecture, but to also see a football game. AT&T Stadium seats 80,000 people. When the stadium is expanded to its largest capacity it can accommodate 100,000 people, with practically no bad seats in the house, especially as they have the world’s largest high definition video screen display above the field as well as 3,000 LCD displays throughout the stadium. You’ll also have a comfortable amount of leg room to relax and enjoy the game. Tickets start around $30 for a standing room ticket, and go all the way up to $500.
The stadium also offers tours that showcase the diverse offerings of the venue. Tours of AT&T Stadium take place Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm (last tour departs at 4:30pm), and Sundays from 11am to 5pm (last tour departs at 3:30pm).
