These Cowboys have swapped their boots for crampons.
With 5 Super Bowls to their credit, one of the world’s most expensive stadiums and legendary quarter backs, the Dallas Cowboys are definitely an NFL team to watch.
The Dallas Cowboys, who are they?
Founded in 1960, the Dallas Cowboys franchise is an NFL (National Football League) football team. The team representing the eastern United States for a long time, the Washington Redskins, was obviously offended at the appearance of the Dallas Cowboys, and has long opposed their training.
For the little anecdote, the owners of the Cowboys at the time bought the rights to the official anthem of this fierce team. the owner then had to give in to the pressure: if they did not allow the creation of the Cowboys, the Redskins would never be accompanied by their anthem during the games.
Since then, the two teams are devoting themselves to the wildest animosity.

Inaugurated in 2009 after 3 years of work, AT&T Stadium in Arlington has since hosted the Dallas Cowboys. About 80,000 fervent supporters cheer on their favorite football players, ranking the stadium as number four in the NFL.
The stadium was transformed and can accommodate up to 105,000 people at the Super Bowl, which made it the largest indoor stadium in the world. Big event in the world of sport, its inauguration attracted crowds, including former Dallas Cowboys players and other celebrities, and the very first game that was played was seen by 105,121 spectators, beating the record of affluence of the National Football League.
With a total construction cost of $ 1.15 billion (the figure remains unclear), against the original $ 650 million, the stadium is one of the most expensive sports venues in the world. It has the largest giant screen in the world, 49 meters long and 22 meters high, acquired for 40 million dollars.
Unfortunately for you, fans of the Big D, this beautiful stadium, equipped with the nicest gadgets increases the ticket prices. It usually costs double (around $160 vs. $75 for the other teams). But then again, being a Cowboys supporter comes at a price…
