Frisco to be the future home of Dallas Cowboys headquarters

FRISCO, TX -

The City of Frisco, Texas and the Frisco Independent School District announced a partnership today with the Dallas Cowboys establishing Frisco as the future home of the Cowboys world corporate headquarters and training location.  A multi-use special events and sports facility, to be developed on a footprint of approximately 20 acres, and the Cowboys world corporate headquarters on a footprint of approximately 5 acres, will be the centerpiece of additional mixed-use development on property surrounding the team's new location.

 

"This is an exciting day in the history of the Dallas Cowboys," said Jerry Jones, owner/general manager, Dallas Cowboys.  "We are committed to cooperatively creating a development that will be a source of great pride for the City of Frisco, the FISD and the Dallas Cowboys.  We know first-hand how world class facilities can create great interest, visibility and economic development.  This is a community building partnership that will elevate and benefit all of the parties involved." 

 

The complex will be developed on a 91 acre tract in Frisco on Collin County land located on the northwest corner of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway.

 

In addition to becoming the home to the NFL team's entire football operation, including administrative offices, coaches' offices and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, the complex will include a multipurpose, 12,000 seat, indoor stadium and two outdoor fields that will provide facilities for use by the Cowboys, City of Frisco and Frisco ISD football and soccer games and other sports, athletic, academic, fine arts and entertainment events.

 

"We're elated to partner the entire Dallas Cowboys organization and the Jones family," said Mayor Maher Maso. "Having a partner of this caliber is a perfect fit for our community. We're committed to creating unique, destinations that bring families together, promote business and tourism, attract major events and improve our overall quality of life while keeping our property taxes low. We welcome ‘America's Team' to one of the fastest growing cities in the country."    

 

The 25-year agreement calls for at least one week, per year, of the Cowboys official pre-season football training camp to be held in Frisco.
