Cotton Bowl stadium plays host to an array of sports events and concerts throughout the year. It sits on the original site of the State Fair Stadium, which was built entirely from wood in 1921. The current stadium, originally constructed in 1930, underwent massive renovations in 1994. It is famous for the New Year's Day football game as well as the Red River Shootout, a football showdown between the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas at Austin. Each of these annual events draws crowds from across the state and the country. Though its primary function is as a football stadium, the bowl hosted six World Cup soccer games in 1994. In addition, numerous concerts from all musical genres have played in the stadium. Ticket prices vary depending on the event. Call for pricing and times.
We all go to the OU-Texas game. I have been able to use the press elevator to get into the satdium as I have a handicap that makes it harrd to climb stairs and use ramps. This year I went there and even though it says handicap entrance on it, I was not allowed to enter and told to go to the other side of the stadium. I walk to the other side and was unble to find another entrance. I ended up walking all the way around the stadium. Finally, I talked to a gentleman that seem to be in charge of workerd. He told me to go back to the entrance and ask the lady there to let me go up and he finally relented. I by the time I had gone all the way around my brace had worn a blister on my foot, so it ws very hard to walk after the game. Please make it most accesiable to disabled people. I have been coming for over 50 years and would like to continue.
