NFL Approves Dallas Cowboys Plan to Pay for $295M in AT&T Stadium Upgrades

Earlier this week, we told you the Dallas Cowboys were planning $295 million in upgrades for AT&T Stadium. During NFL league meetings in Irving in the last few days, the team got a green light on their plan to pay for the job, Sports Illustrated’s Mike Fisher reports.

The refresh won’t “radically alter” the look and feel of the 100,000-seat stadium, according to Sports Business Journal. Instead, most of those millions will go toward refreshing premium spaces that are set for lease renewals, as well as upgrading back-end systems and technology in the run-up to the 2026 World Cup.

The ’Pokes had asked for a waiver to the NFL’s team debt limit of $600 million, and asked the other 31 NFL teams to let the Cowboys withhold their standard contributions to shared gate revenue, SBJ added.
