SOCAL COYOTES COULD ADVANCE TO NATIONAL TITLE AT COWBOYS AT&T STADIUM

(INDIO) – Internationally renowned AT&T Stadium will be home to the 2017 National Championship of the World Developmental Football League, when the winners of the East Coast Division and Pacific Coast Division collide on November 6, league officials confirmed today.

For the SoCal Coyotes, a Pacific Coast Division championship on October 28 would mean an automatic trip to Dallas. The WDFL National Championship will be played at 7 p.m. on a Monday night, the day after the Dallas Cowboys host the Kansas City Chiefs on the same field.

Frank Shourds, WDFL Executive Vice President of Business Operations, praised the “size and scope” of the league’s “first-of-its-kind” event, which he says will “grow the brand and the sport exponentially” as the WDFL rapidly expands.

“The WDFL teams who represent both coasts in this national title event legitimizes the growth, popularity and prevalence of developmental professional football,” Shourds said.

An array of other major ground-breaking announcements surrounding the event are forthcoming, Shourds said. The WDFL, which has 32 teams in six countries, hosts its East Coast Division Championship September 16 in Wilmington, North Carolina. Eight teams are still alive and currently vying for the right to represent the East Coast.

The Pacific Coast Division kicks off August 26 and concludes with its championship October 28 at Shadow Hills Stadium in Indio, California.

The Pacific Coast Division is effectively a three-team, round-robin tournament between the California Sharks, Los Angeles Scorpions and SoCal Coyotes. More than 30 pre-qualified owners and cities have applied for admission to the WDFL for 2018, Shourds said.

AT&T Stadium, formerly known as Cowboys Stadium, is located outside Dallas in Arlington, Texas. It serves as the home of the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League and is also the home of the Cotton Bowl Classic.

The stadium is sometimes referred to as “Jerry World” after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who originally envisioned it as a large entertainment mecca. The stadium regularly seats 80,000 for football, making it tied as the fifth-largest stadium in the NFL by seating capacity with the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

The maximum capacity of the stadium with standing room is 105,000. The record attendance for an NFL game was setthere  in 2009 with a crowd of 105,121.

It also has the world’s 24th largest high-definition video screen, which hangs from 20-yard line to 20-yard line.
