Dallas Cowboys practice facility moving to Frisco

Posted: Updated:

The Dallas Cowboys will relocate its practice facilities to Frisco, after Frisco ISD's school board approved the move Monday night.

The landmark deal most notably includes a domed stadium the team and city would share – as an indoor practice facility for the Cowboys and a venue for high school football games for Frisco ISD.

Among the groups who signed off on the deal: Frisco ISD, the City of Frisco and the City of Frisco's Community Development Corporation and Economic Development Corporation.

"In front of us is the opportunity for our students and for FISD to be a part of something truly magnificent," said FISD Superintendent Jeremy Lyon at Tuesday's formal announcement.

The city and school district will contribute $115 million in sales tax revenue to help build the complex. Officials say there will be no increase in the sales tax or property tax rate.

The sprawling complex will be located on 91 acres on the northwest corner of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway.

The domed stadium will seat an estimated 12,000 people, enough for the 4A high schools in Frisco ISD.

Frisco is already the site of the Dr. Pepper Arena, where the Dallas Stars practice and Texas Legends basketball team plays. FC Dallas Stadium, a soccer venue also shared with Frisco ISD opened in 2005 and the Dr. Pepper Ballpark is the home of the Frisco RoughRiders.

A ceremony celebrating the Cowboys' move is expected to happen Tuesday at the site of the new facility.
