AT&T Stadium is in a class of it’s own and not just because it’s the home of the Dallas Cowboys. It’s one of those places that no matter how many times you go, you will be amazed. I’ve been to the AT&T Stadium over a dozen times and I’m in awe every single time. There is an energy about the stadium that you can feel the moment you enter whether you are attending a Cowboys game, watching a concert or touring the stadium.
Although I’ve been to the stadium many times (over 5 times in November and December alone), AT&T invited me to an exclusive, private behind-the-scenes tour and I learned so many interesting facts about the stadium and had to share a few tidbits that I learned.
- Since AT&T Stadium is technically considered a room, it is the largest air conditioned room in the entire world.
- AT&T controls the data center at the Stadium which is the ‘brains’ of the building. If for any reason the data center fails, there is a back up center located at The Star in Frisco.
- The Dallas Cowboys are the only NFL team that manufacturers their own clothing! They have a store located inside AT&T stadium called the NFL Pro Shop that you can buy all the gear you can imagine.
- The average person at AT&T Stadium uses 50-150 megabytes per game depending what they’re doing. If you’re like me, you’re constantly on your phone taking pictures, tweeting or updating Facebook. Thankfully, the data center at the stadium keeps our signal alive so we can stay online with no issues
- The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders locker room is lined in bright lights and mirrors, while the Dallas Cowboys Football players locker room is very elegant with imported wood from Australia – compliments of Jerry Jones.
- AT&T Stadium has an app that will enhance your experience whether it’s game day or not. Using the app on game day, you can buy/sell tickets, use the interactive maps, watch instant replays and get access to exclusive Dallas Cowboys game day experiences. On non game days, you can access schedules, learn about tours, and purchase tickets.
When you get to the stadium, you can do everything that you would be able to do at home whether it’s receiving phone calls, accessing social networks, uploading videos, looking up game scores and more. Because of AT&T’s amazing technology that powers the stadium, you are still able to do all of those things without issues. It’s amazing that even with over 80,000 fans packed into a stadium that AT&T is able to provide service so can all do these things without any interruptions.
If you haven’t been, I highly recommend going for a visit. No matter if you are a Cowboys fan or not, AT&T’s stadium is amazing and definitely worth a trip to Arlington.
