USBands is proud to announce the first-ever USBands Southwestern Championships Powered by The Cadets at AT&T Stadium on October 21, 2017 in Dallas, Texas. Not only is this the very first USBands Southwestern Championship, this is the first time any marching band event has been held at AT&T Stadium! Home to the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, AT&T Stadium will host as many as sixty bands in a championship event to mirror the USBands Open Class National Championship held at MetLife Stadium each November. Marching bands from across Texas and the surrounding states will have the opportunity to perform in one of America's grandest stadiums.
"What an absolutely incredible opportunity for bands across the South to perform in such an esteemed stadium," said Steve Petzinger, Director of USBands. "Make sure you join us on October 21 and be a part of history as a participant in the premiere USBands Southwestern Championship." George Hopkins, the CEO of Youth Education in the Arts, the parent organization of USBands joined in saying, "The organization will make sure from the judges to the overall experience... all will be first class. We may be a bit late to the market, but this is an event you are not going to want to miss."
AT&T Stadium was completed in 2007 and is owned by the city of Arlington, TX. It has been used for a variety of activities such as concerts, basketball games, college and high school football games and soccer matches. The stadium seats 80,000 people, making it the fifth largest stadium in the NFL by seating capacity. It also has one of the world's largest high definition video screens, which hangs from 20-yard line to 20-yard line.
