At the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Arlington, Texas is home to avid baseball fans, college students, business and fun.
Most widely known as the home to the MLB’s Texas Rangers, Arlington is a key city for baseball as well as major league sports in general. The Texas Rangers has been Arlington-Dallas-Fort Worth’s team since 1972, and played in the Globe Life Park in Arlington since 1994. It’s no mistake that America is regarded as the land of baseball and baseball fanatics. Being the nation’s ultimate pastime, this popular game has a strong community all over the states, though nothing quite matches the passion of the die-hard Ranger fans.
However, baseball is not the only major sport in the area. In fact, NFL‘s Dallas Cowboys home stadium is located in Arlington. The AT&T Stadium has brought in tons of guests (and money) to the city of Arlington from the Super Bowl XLV in 2011 to the 2010 NBA All-Star Game to live music concerts.
Last but not least, the first WNBA franchise, the Dallas Wings, play home games at the College Park Center in Arlington. While these sport teams are Dallas affiliated, it is the city of Arlington that gives them a home.
The University of Texas at Arlington resides near downtown Arlington with around 40,000 students making the college the largest in north Texas and fourth in state.

Ranked as one of the fastest growing public research universities in the nation by The Chronicle of Higher Education, UTA offers many programs, an experience unlike none other at The Planetarium Dome Theater and an excellent college adventure.
With its short distance to the DFW airport, Arlington provides a great location for business and fun. Balancing the essence of a small town and the big community of a metroplex, Arlington has developed a business-friendly environment while staying true to its roots. Working in the largest metro area in Texas, you can create your own business in Arlington.
