While other events continue to move to Jerry World (AT&T Stadium), the RRS participants demanded renovations be completed when they first negotiated the deal in 2012 which extended to 2020. The city responded by spending $25M to spruce up the amenities.
Currently, each program receives $500,000 along with a split of the ticket sales.
The latest contract extension with Oklahoma and Texas doesn't include any changes to the deal or extra incentives, Schenkel said. But the city is nonetheless pressing ahead with other improvements to Fair Park.
At the conclusion of the extension, the game will have been played at this venue for 97 years.
