Everything is bigger and better in Texas
The Star is the 91-acre campus that hosts the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys in Frisco, Texas. Please take a few minutes to watch this “First Look” introduction launched last fall shortly it’s grand opening.
The Star actually provides tours to fans like you and I 355 days out of the year.
In the event you cant make it this year I wanted to give you an inside look at the VIP tour, and it’s key areas. Possibly after the 2017 season we can add a “Reason six” if you know what I mean.
Reason one. In 2017, the Cowboys NFL draft will be conducted in this new state-of-the-art “War Room” designed with superior technology and fully interactive video wall. A 40 X 30 foot room jam packed with technology translating data on players.
The interactive video wall, made up of three rows of five 55-inch LCD narrow bezel displays, 15 total. There will be two 98-inch multi-touch displays that will be used for side-by-side comparisons of players. The Cowboys will be able to stream up to 16 different video application feeds at the same time.
The room will include six secure phones for draft-day conversations with drafted players, the NFL, other teams, etc. Strict security measures will be put in place to access the room, but the Cowboys declined to reveal specifics.
Reason two. The Ford Center at The Star is a state-of-the-art, 510,000 square-foot indoor athletic facility shared by the Dallas Cowboys, the City of Frisco, and Frisco ISD’s high schools. The same field where Stephen Jones’s son John helped lead Highland Park to it’s fourth state title.
Reason three. Nike Star Walk: Sponsored by Nike, the Nike Star Walk is a collection of the 10 most significant milestones in Dallas Cowboys history, along with a display of the evolution of the team’s uniforms dating back to 1960.
Reason four. Super Bowl Memorabilia & Station: A display of all five Super Bowl Trophies and Rings from the years of 1971, 1977, 1992, 1993 and 1995. The Super Bowl Station is a complete collection of memorabilia from all five Super Bowl championships.
Reason five. Grand Atrium: In the Grand Atrium, with its beautiful Italian marble floors that are adorned with names and quotes of Dallas Cowboys players and coaches, hangs artist Leo Villareal LED sculpture titled “Volume Frisco” (2016). This dancing LED display includes more than 19,200 white LED lights embedded in 160, 40-foot-long, stainless steel mirrored rods hanging from the ceiling.
