AT&T Stadium (Cowboys Stadium) is the home of the Dallas Cowboys NFL team. The location of the venue sits out on One AT&T Way, Arlington, TX 76011. Outside of hosting NFL games, AT&T Stadium accommodates concerts and other events year-round for fans to enjoy.
Here is the guide to parking for a Dallas Cowboys football game.
Parking Options Around the Stadium
If you plan to park in the AT&T Stadium parking lots, you have over 12,000 space options from 15 official lots. Lots open five hours before kick-off, so arrive early to claim a parking spot and tailgate. If you want to purchase official parking passes for the Dallas Cowboys, you can use this link from SeatGeek. As a note, parking rates for the official lots will vary in price.
You can also visit the official parking section for the Cowboys with that link. Visiting that link is a good idea since there can be changes and updates to the parking in and around the venue.
My Recommendation on Parking + Experience with SpotHero
I’ve been using SpotHero for years to save money on parking. The app and website are very easy to use where all you need to do is click on this link to see your unofficial parking options near the stadium. From my experience, the parking rates on SpotHero tend to be much cheaper than what you will pay at any official parking lot. The main drawback, however, is that the parking options are a bit of a walk to the venue.
AT&T Stadium Handicap Parking
There are handicap spaces and parking spots available in all lots for fans to use for Cowboys games. Please note that all accessible parking spaces come at a first come and first serve basis. Fans will need to show a valid parking pass to leave their vehicle in these parking spaces. If there are any questions with stadium parking, you will find helpful and friendly parking staff ready to assist.
Is there Tailgating?
Tailgating is a fan favorite aspect for College Football, The Cotton Bowl, and Dallas Cowboys Football games. Tailgate lots is permitted to lots 3, parts of 5, 8, and 9. Other tailgating rules include using the grass space and grass areas outside the parking lots so that fans can partake in my activities before kick-off. Fans are expected to clean up any trash that they create before heading in the stadium.

Can you Tailgate Before a Game?
Tailgating is allowed in certain parking lots for any game and AT&T Stadium event. Check out the official tailgating guide here to learn everything you need to know.
Should I Take Public Transportation?
There are not many public transportation alternatives for fans to consider when going to a College Football or Dallas Cowboys Football game. There is a cowboys bus that brings you from downtown forth Worth to the stadium. The bus leaves from Vickey Park and Ride which is south of the T&P Rail station. Taking a bus may be a better option that dealing with Dallas Cowboy parking crowded lots leaving the game.
Also, you can use a rideshare program to get to and from the stadium.
