Cotton Bowl® Stadium, located inside Fair Park in Dallas, Texas, opened in 1930 as a 46,000-seat venue known as Fair Park Stadium. This historic landmark serves as the site of the annual Red River Showdown football game between the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma and was the original home of the annual Cotton Bowl Classic from 1937 until 2009, when the game was moved to AT&T Stadium in Arlington in January 2010. From hosting the NFL Championship on January 1, 1967, to watching 23 Heisman Trophy winners take the field, the Cotton Bowl has seen its share of highlights in its 89 years. Today, the stadium has a capacity of more than 92,000-seats, making it one of the largest stadiums in the country. On January 1, 2020, Cotton Bowl® Stadium hosted the NHL's first outdoor hockey game in the south when the Dallas Stars took on the Nashville Predators in front of 85,630 fans. The sold-out game is the second largest in the event's history.
