The city of Irving has announced doomsday for the Dallas Cowboys’ long-time home: April 11. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese will do the honors of razing the stadium, as part of a Project Cheddar Explosion promotion.
The City of Irving announced today that Texas Stadium, the iconic facility that served as home of the Dallas Cowboys for 37 years, will be imploded at daybreak on Sunday, April 11, 2010.
Interest is building and outlets are being developed so the public can be involved in the demolition progression from start-to-finish. Six cameras have been installed to capture the process leading up to the historic event, as well as the implosion itself. Four cameras will be located outside the stadium and two cameras on the inside will go down with the stadium when it is imploded. Live Internet feeds are accessible throughout the demolition at www.cityofirving.org/texas-stadium.
“There is great interest among sports fans, tourists and residents to watch the implosion in person,” said Maura Gast, executive director, Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau. “City officials are currently determining logistics such as staging and viewing areas, parking, and how to manage traffic around the stadium.”
Last week, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese announced their sponsorship of the stadium’s implosion with a national contest to win the chance to detonate Texas Stadium. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Cheddar Explosion is searching for one kid (ages 9-12) to tell a story about a positive impact they have made to better their community by sending in a 300 words or less essay and a picture illustrating his or her story. The contest entry period is from January 7, 2010 until February 5, 2010, when all entries must be received. To enter, please visit: http://www.projectcheddarexplosion.com
