There must be buses or taxis that will drop you near the stadium?

thats what i thought but from what people have said and google it doesn't seem to be possible and apparently taxis wont take you there on game days.

tbh tho if i do go to a dallas game i'll figure something out, even if it does mean hiring a car for a day, stadium is supposed to be awesome.

I been to Cowboys home games the last 2 years, managed without a car. Hotel was across the road, the area has plenty of food places with in walking distance and they have footpaths with crossings as well. Getting from the airport I used Supershuttle. There are other hotels within walking distance as well maybe a 20 minute walk away.
If you don't stay in Arlington I am sure Taxis will drop of, if not at the stadium which I can't see why not if you arrive 3-4 hours early before the bulk of traffic. I do know that next to the Days Inn hotel there were taxis parked up waiting to pick up. There were also people waiting for buses which I am sure are the ones that run from Fort Worth.
Although Arlington has no public transport unlike Irving, Cowboys Stadium is a lot better for a non driver than Texas Stadium was.

Big thanks Hallster, i looked at booking with thomas cook travel and can stay at the days inn hotel in December 2011 for 3 nights (Friday - Sunday) and depart monday morning for under £600 inc flights. Can anyone else recommend a cheaper way of getting there (flight & hotel combo?).

Gatwick to DFW with changes at Charlotte flying with US airways. BA want over £800 for just flights flying direct to DFW from Heathrow. Dont mind extra time in in the air to save a few quid.

I've never been before so staying in Arlington will do for me as i just want to go to the stadium for a game. Will prob be going on my own so just have to take my laptop with me to keep me busy the friday & saturday.

Started saving already so when fixtures come out in April i'll be able to book straight away. Just hope we're home over the weekend before xmas or xmas weekend or new year weekend so i dont have to book to many days off work.

Go Cowboys!!!

p.s. Where and how would i be able to get a ticket for a game? Anyone got a contact email so i can check it out? Should be ok to get a ticket for most home games im thinking as i would only need the one ticket.

If your staying at the Days Inn that is right across the street then make sure you book the one on North Collins street (its full name is D/I six flags / ballpark / Cowboys stadium) as there is another Days Inn Arlington. Something to remember about that hotel is that the prices do go up the night before and night of an event been held in the stadium so the prices listed now for the dates might go up once the schedule is released. Don't expect to much for the price, its ok but your mainly paying for the location to the stadium.

Can't give any tips about flights other than shop around the usual suspects expedia / ebookers etc as well the airlines them selves. Normally I would say if you wanted to guarantee an home game then Thanksgiving week would be a good week, at least 1 home game and the Cowboys do get to play at home the week before at lot as well. I believe there will be games by then but I wouldn't be booking just yet.

For tickets the NFL ticket exchange is a good place, there are links on NFL.com. Its a place where people sell there spare tickets so there more than face value, but the good thing is all you do is print it out and take it to the game. I used to have an e-mail address of someone in the ticket office who could supply me with a ticket at face value until last year when he said he couldn't now but ticketexchange now allows overseas customers to buy.

However long you go for don't forget to have a day to do the tour, the self guided tour is good to be able to walk freely around the areas on the tour and also to stand on the field or sit on the bench and look at the big board. There is also a guided tour with does upstairs areas like suites and press box.
Careful if the tour guide jokes about there been a minimum spend in the pro shop where the tour ends like he did when I did it 2 years ago. I think he was joking but I didn't want to take a chance The problem with the pro shop is it is easy to get carried away.

What would our schedule have been if we hadn't won the game vs the Eagles in that last few seconds?

Presumably, as well as costing us 4 places in the draft, it has also made our schedule harder.

With us finishing 3rd in NFC East we paired up with Lions (H) & Buccs (A).

If we had been 4th, we would of had Vikings (H) & Panthers (A).

It could of been worse. Both look alot easier than playing Packers/Bears home or Falcons/Saints away.
