A Texas HS is partnering with the Cowboys for a new indoor facility
The Frisco Independent School District is scheduled to vote this evening on the possibility of partnering with the Dallas Cowboys to build an indoor facility that the district could use for high school games, while the Cowboys use it as their indoor practice facility.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys and Frisco ISD (currently consisting of six schools with two more schools joining in the next two years) would share the costs with the school system using the facility for games on Thursday and Friday evening, as well as potential playoff games, and the Cowboys will use it to practice indoors during rain or cold weather.
Capacity wise, the stadium will seat a minimum of 12,000 fans for games with the ability to accommodate up to 22,000 for concerts and other events.
Creative idea here by the ISD and Cowboys partnering to meet both of their needs. The ISD has a similar agreement with FC Dallas (the professional soccer club based in the city), whose venue they use as one of their two stadiums to currently host games.
This is a really exciting possibility for the high schools that get to play in it, and we're really looking forward to seeing what the finished product looks like. Knowing Jerry Jones and his flair for the best, we fully expect it to have a few bells and whistles.
