Cowboys will open “The Star” today; A new facility featuring 12,000 seats
The Dallas Cowboys and Jerry Jones are opening The Star facility today. It will include a 12,000-seat indoor stadium. One side will be dedicated to high school operations, the other will be for the Cowboys and there will be shared turf between them. The set up is the first of its kind for an NFL team.
“Certainly [we have] so many tremendous, great memories at Valley Ranch,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It’s no different than [the team’s move into] AT&T Stadium. You can’t live in the past. It’s a new day for our franchise.
“It was tough to leave that and all the great memories that happened there at Texas Stadium. The same thing holds for Valley Ranch. I think The Star and our new facility out at The Star will be special.”
