Game Day Information
As we prepare for the game against the New Orleans Saints, we want to pass along general information to keep you informed.
The stadium roof and doors are expected to be open. Please note that this can change up to 90 minutes prior to kickoff.
We encourage fans to arrive early and be patient when entering the stadium. Enhanced security procedures including hand-held metal detectors will be present at the stadium gates. This increased security procedure is required by the NFL and will increase the comfort and safety of fans at the game, but will require additional time for inspections at the gates.
Cowboys Tailgate Party: Cowboys Stadium will be hosting a pre-game tailgate party on the Miller Lite East Plaza. All guests with game tickets will be able to enter the Miller Lite East Plaza beginning at 8:00am and enjoy discounted food and beverage and live entertainment until stadium doors open at 10:00am.
