Work begins today on new Cowboys practice facility

The Cowboys are a month away from training camp, but work will begin on their new practice facility today.

According to Calvin Watkins of, construction is starting on their new place in Frisco, with the ceremonial groundbreaking in August.

The plan is to move to the new facility in 2016. It will include an indoor football stadium that will be used by high school teams as well, and all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a Cowboys facility.

“We’re ecstatic to take this next step of allowing the site to be prepared for construction, which is one of many steps in the process,” Frisco mayor Maher Maso said in a statement. “We’re dedicated to building a world-class, quality development that will benefit our residents, inspire our students and captivate visitors from everywhere.”

That’s a big expectation for a practice field. But then again, everything’s bigger in Texas.
