A look at the AT&T Stadium, the home of WrestleMania 32

 
 

Over the years, WrestleMania has seen its fair share of stadiums. From the Silverdome, to the Sky Dome, to the Astrodome, the Superdome, the Sun Life Stadium, and others, but nothing bigger than the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, now known as the AT&T Stadium.

The AT&T Stadium, the home of WrestleMania 32, opened in May 2009 and carries a cost of $1.3 billion. It is the fourth largest stadium in the NFL by seating capacity, holding 80,000 in a football setting.

The stadium broke ground in September 2005 and was ready in July 2009 when the artificial turf field brought into the stadium. The Cowboys held their first pre-season home game a month later.

The stadium held the record of the world’s largest high-definition video display, a record which was then broken in 2013 by the EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.

In July 2013, the Cowboys sold the naming rights to AT&T for a sponsorship deal which was reported to be worth around $19 million per year.

Throughout its short history, the AT&T Stadium held several big events including Super Bowl XLV, high profile college football games, basketball, and soccer.

The highest attendance record currently stands with the 2010 NBA All-Star Game which had a total of 108,713 fans watching.

The first NFL game between the Cowboys and the Giants in the stadium in 2009 drew 105,121.
