Your Mansfield Football Season Guide

Football season is back and Mansfield is at the center of it all at every level of the sport. The Eyes of Texas High School Football will be on the city August 29th through 31st when the Border Brawl kicks off. Five of the best teams from the Tulsa, OK area will be in town to face off against Mansfield's five teams. The five games will be played at Mansfield ISD's two top tier arenas: R.L. Anderson Stadium and Vernon Newsom Stadium.

But it's not just high school. Mansfield is perfectly located just 20 minutes south from AT&T Stadium. If you're coming to the area for one of the major college football games like the Advocare Classic, Southwest Classic, Big 12 Championship or Goodyear Cotton Bowl, Mansfield makes the perfect spot to stay.

Of course, the main attraction at AT&T Stadium is its home team: the Dallas Cowboys. Thousands of fans flock to North Texas every year to watch America's Team and when they stay in Mansfield their trip comes with an added bonus: a free shuttle to and from the game.
That's right, Visit Mansfield sponsors a free shuttle bus that picks up guests that are in town to attend the Cowboys game when they stay in a Mansfield hotel. No expensive parking fee, no fighting through traffic and no bickering over who the designated driver is! For more info check out the video below:
