THE AMERICAN Has “A Home in Arlington”
June 13, 2018
NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) Matt Wilson, Arlington Sports Commission Executive Director and VP of Sports and Events, shared his thoughts regarding the five year agreement with RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN and AT&T Stadium, in Arlington, Texas. Wilson joined RFD-TV’s “Market Day Report” in a first-ever live broadcast from the network's new studio at RFD-TV The Ranch, located just north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The ranch lies on more than 3,000 acres and will be the future home for many productions and events.
“We’re thrilled about the announcement,” Wilson said. “We love to have one-off events, but we really love to have events that build a home here. RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN has built a home in Arlington, and is something that we’re excited to see continue and grow.”
Wilson also cited Arlington’s rapid growth – soon to include a brand new entertainment district called “Texas Live,” a luxury hotel, and a new world-class baseball stadium – as a factor that makes the arrangement particularly attractive to all the parties involved.
Summing up the significance of this deal, Wilson added, “The Cowboys don’t put their time and money into things that aren’t significant events, and it’s something that we’re incredibly excited about. We know that, the Cowboys being behind it, it’ll only continue to get bigger and better every year.”
