ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Fans in patriotic gear headed to the air-conditioned home of the Dallas Cowboys for a World Cup soccer watching party as the U.S. faces Belgium.
Parking and admission were free Tuesday afternoon at climate-controlled AT&T Stadium, which boasts massive video screens and can seat 100,000.
Fans wearing red, white and blue and waving U.S. flags began to gather outside the venue in Arlington more than two hours before the start of the game.
Cowboys spokesman Brett Daniels had no anticipated crowd estimate. Daniels says concession stands were opening with some discounted food items available.
Daniels says the roof of the stadium would be closed and the air conditioning on. Forecasters expected temperatures in the 90s on Tuesday in the Dallas area.
