Back in my home country, the most gigantic stadium I had ever seen was Bukit Jalil National Sports Complex in Kuala Lumpur which is described as 'sports complex in a park'.
Since we were visiting Arlington on last Christmas, guess it is worth to wander at the new home to the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys, that was just completed in May last year (2009) and costed $1.1 billion dollar!
Even from afar, one can't miss this stadium. Silver shining walls of a dome shape, Cowboy Stadium was built with a retractable roof located on Randol Mill Rd not too far from Texas Rangers Ballpark and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.
Some interesting facts about Dallas Cowboys Football Stadium (as of to-date):
Besides football, the stadium facility can also be used for other sporting matches like basketball, college/high school football, soccer and rodeos as well as non-sporting events such as concert or religious ceremony.
- The largest domed stadium in the world.
- The stadium with world's largest column-free interior.
- Houses the world's largest high definition video screen which hangs from 20 yard line to 20 yard line.
- The stadium with third largest seating capacity stadium in NFL, housing 80,000 seats.
If you wish to take a tour inside the stadium and see the behind-the-scenes such as Cowboys Locker Room, Cheerleaders Locker Room or Private Club, check for the opportunity at Pro Shop located off the 365 Entrance at Entry A, Gate 1 of Cowboys Stadium.
