Ford Center at The Star is a 12,000-seat indoor stadium located in Frisco, Texas, and is home to the Dallas Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse. It is also used for Whataburger's Friday Night Stars, an event every Friday showcasing Frisco Independent School District high school varsity football. The synthetic turf is Hellas Matrix Turf with Helix Technology. It can also be used as a regulation soccer field. Its main use is as the Dallas Cowboys' practice facility.[4][5]

History

The project was announced in 2013 as a partnership between the City of Frisco and the Dallas Cowboys as part of the "$5 Billion Mile" in Frisco Station, Texas. The Ford Center is part of a 91-acre development called The Star that includes the Dallas Cowboys’ team headquarters and training facility which moved from Valley Ranch, Texas, a 300-room Omni Hotel, the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor Walk, and retail and restaurant space. The Ford Center at The Star aside from the main stadium features practice fields and a sports training complex called the "Baylor Scott & White Sports Therapy & Research center for sports medicine".[6]

In 2015, the Cowboys and Ford Motor Company signed a ten year deal for naming rights.[7]

Dallas Rattlers

On November 16, 2017, Major League Lacrosse announced it was relocating the Rochester Rattlers to Frisco and the Ford Center, renamed as the Dallas Rattlers.[8] The Rattlers, the first professional team to play their games in the facility, played their first home game at the Ford Center on Sunday, April 29, 2018, against the Denver Outlaws. The Rattlers won the game in overtime, 15–14 with a reported 7,217 attendance.[9]

Texas Revolution

On December 18, 2018, the Texas Revolution of Champions Indoor Football announced they had signed a three-year lease to play home games at the Ford Center beginning with the 2019 season.[10]
