AURORA, Ill. (December 3, 2001) - Texas Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, announced today a three-year agreement with Clear Channel Entertainment's motor sports division to continue hosting Clear Channel Entertainment's supercross events through 2004.
Texas Stadium now joins Anaheim's Edison International Field, Phoenix's Bank One Ballpark, Minneapolis' Metrodome, and Las Vegas' Sam Boyd Stadium on the list of major stadiums continuing to confirm their place on the 2003 and beyond schedule of Clear Channel Entertainment's supercross series.
Texas Stadium, home of the five-time World Champion Dallas Cowboys, was erected in 1980 and holds 66,000 fans. With its half dome, half open-air roof, it is one of the most recognized stadiums in the world. Clear Channel Entertainment has been bringing supercross to the Texas Stadium since 1975 and has averaged over 40,000 fans ever since.
"Clear Channel Entertainment continues to bring a world class operation to Texas Stadium, which is why we continue to open our doors to their company each year," said Bruce Hardy, general manager of Texas Stadium. "Supercross is year in and year out a fan favorite for not only the people of the Dallas/ Ft Worth metropolitan area but also for all Texans. We look forward to Clear Channel's supercross events for years to come. They have been here since 1975 and have delivered the goods every year."
"Texas Stadium has been a staple on the supercross schedule since 1975. Their loyalty to our product shows the commitment of yet another venue to the future of supercross," said Charlie Mancuso, President of Clear Channel Entertainment's Motor Sports division. "Near sell-out capacity crowds and the best supercross racing in the world will continue at Texas Stadium through 2004 and beyond."
