AT&T Stadium cost $1.3 billion to build in the mid-2000s. After a 44-month construction phase, AT&T Stadium finally opened in May 2009.

After accounting for nearly 20 years of inflation, that’s more like $1.65 billion in today’s money. 

The AT&T Stadium capacity is recorded as 80,000, making it one of the largest stadiums in North America. It’s the third-largest NFL stadium in the league.

Because AT&T Stadium is a popular stadium in a large metroplex, it is a popular location to hold major events from other sports, like the 2030 Final Four.

Is AT&T Stadium the Biggest NFL Stadium?

No, AT&T Stadium is not the biggest stadium in the NFL. That honor belongs to MetLife Stadium, which has a reported capacity of 82,500.
