The Dallas Cowboys have called Irving home since 1971, but in 2009 they'll move west to their new Arlington home, a state-of-the-art stadium designed to seat about 80,000 (with flexibility for 10,000 more) near Rangers Ballpark. The giant stadium will feature a retractable roof that can open or close in 12 minutes and partially close to resemble the distinctive roof of the team's old Texas Stadium. The roof is supported by two arches that rise 320 feet above the field.
Those arches also will hold in place the biggest wall of video screens in NFL history. The stadium will host the 2011 Super Bowl.
