Parents in north Dallas often buy Frisco TX homes so their children can attend the city’s highly rated schools. The Frisco school district now has access to a brand new venue to host football and soccer games, academic, fine arts and entertainment events – the Ford Center at The Star.
The newly opened 12,000-seat, 510,000-square foot indoor athletic facility represents a partnership between the city of Frisco, Frisco ISD and the Dallas Cowboys, since it also serves as the NFL team’s training facility.
The Ford Center opened to the public August 27th with an unprecedented quadruple header featuring all eight Frisco high school football teams. Several Cowboys players, including Dez Bryant, watched a few plays during the Star Kickoff and took pictures with a few awestruck students. Three of the four games were televised nationally on ESPNU and NFL Network.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has called the Ford Center a “championship venue” that will “…inspire not only the students here at Frisco but inspire the Dallas Cowboys.” Jones told ESPNU, “These kids – amateur, high school – to be involved in this, they know in a little way they can do it too. And that confidence thing is maybe as important as that speed or size out there.”
The Dallas Cowboys, in partnerships with Ford, Nike, the Texas Lottery, Whataburger and Panasonic, will provide an enriching experience athletically and academically for students through the new facility. For instance, Nike is the exclusive apparel provider for all Frisco ISD sports, the Texas Lottery will develop a grant program to fund fitness and physical activities initiatives in Texas’ public schools, and Panasonic has provided stadium and digital signage solutions throughout The Star, as well as video boards in and outside the Ford Center.
