The American at AT&T Stadium
Shannon Sutlief Recommends
This weekend, AT&T Stadium — the home of the Dallas Cowboys — will host actual cowboys, plus broncobusters and other rodeo performers. On Feb. 24, about three dozen top bull riders will compete for $100,000, the title of Iron Cowboy, and points for the Professional Bull Riders’ world finals in November. Each rider will try to stay on a bucking bull for eight seconds and advance to the next round. Rounds continue until only one rider is left. Then on Feb. 25, the American will feature $2 million in prizes split among those competing in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding. How ’bout them cowboys.
The American closes out a record-setting week of rodeo in D-FW with four days of The American Semi-Finals in Fort Worth's Cowtown Coliseum, followed by the PBR’s Iron Cowboy on Feb. 24 at AT&T Stadium, and the American on Feb. 25.
Parking is $25-$35 per day.
