In preparation for 1994 World Cup Soccer, the Cotton Bowl underwent a $14-million renovation. The artificial surface was removed for the final time as Bermuda Tifway sod was planted in April, 1993. Additionally, the playing field was widened for soccer, dropping stadium capacity to 71,456. The press box was enlarged and fully renovated as a part of an 11-story west side stadium expansion. The eyes of the world were once again on the Cotton Bowl as quarterfinal hosts for the World Cup and Fair Park as the location for the International Broadcast Center. Also, the first sporting event of the new millennium was played in the Cotton Bowl on January 1, 2000, when Arkansas met Texas in the 64th Southwestern Bell Cotton Bowl Classic.
