Just days after the completion of Wimbledon, Cowboys Stadium will welcome some of the greatest players in the world of tennis to Texas for the inaugural Cowboys Tennis Slam, set for July 10.
The event will feature three current or former No. 1 ranked tennis players in the world in two matches – the first pitting Maria Sharapova against Serena Williams and the second a match-up of Andy Roddick against John Isner, with each match being the best two-of-three sets.
The court will be set up across the end zone at Cowboys Stadium, creating an intimate seating configuration for about 20,000 fans. The evening's first match will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by the second immediately after. This event will be yet another first for Cowboys Stadium, adding to the versatility of a venue that has already shown its ability to host football, soccer, basketball, boxing and bull riding.
"This will be an exciting event for us to hold at Cowboys Stadium," said Dallas Cowboys Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones. "We have seen the flexibility our new stadium has for holding spectacular events of all kinds and this event should be like no other. Being able to attract some of the best tennis players in the world under one roof for a night like this will be something special."
Tickets for the Cowboys Tennis Slam are priced at $75, $100, $135, $175, $225 and $275. Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 5, at 10:00 a.m. through Ticketmaster by visiting www.ticketmaster.com or by calling toll-free, 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the Cowboys Stadium Ticket Office.
Two additional ticket options are also available for the event: A $400 package that includes floor seating and passes to an evening cocktail reception the night prior to the event with a meet and greet with some of the players; the second package is a $500 VIP Front Row seat that includes the Friday night event as well as a private meet and greet Saturday with all of the participants before the event.
