The Big 12 has extended its agreement to host its football championship game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, through the 2030 season.
AT&T Stadium has hosted the past eight Big 12 Conference title games. AT&T Stadium opened in 2009 and hosted both the 2009 and 2010 Big 12 Championship games. After a six-year hiatus for the conference championship game, the contest was back at the venue in 2017.
“The Big 12 is thrilled to announce our Football Championship will be staying at AT&T Stadium through 2030,” said Big 12 Commissioner Brett Yormark. “The Big 12 and AT&T Stadium both call the Metroplex home – through this extension, we will host our Football Championship at a world-class venue in our own backyard. We are grateful for the support and partnership of the Dallas Cowboys organization.”
The 2022 Big 12 Football Championship had 69,335 fans on hand as No. 10 Kansas State defeated No. 3 TCU, 31-28 in overtime. Since the Bg 12 brought back a conference title game at AT&T Stadium, Oklahoma has won three titles with Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Kansas State each winning once.
“We have enjoyed an incredible relationship with the Big 12 Conference, and are honored to continue hosting the Big 12 Championship Game at AT&T Stadium,” said Dallas Cowboys Chief Operating Officer Stephen Jones. “The games, fans and atmosphere have been incredible, and we’re thrilled to continue the tradition of having the best teams in the Big 12 earn the right to play for the title in Arlington.”
