This is the first time in 28 years, that the Final Four has returned to North Texas, and you can believe it will be the largest ever.
They are expecting 80,000 to fill the seats inside of AT&T Stadium. The attendance record for the Final Four is 75,400 at Reliant Stadium in Houston three years ago. The record for the National Championship game is 72,009 at Ford Field in Detroit in 2009. Planning has been in the works for a few years now, the final layout inside has come together in the last month.
Outside the stadium they have 7 acres to work with. Kid Rock and Dierks Bentley are expected to play through the weekend.
