icon1.png Frisco ISD To Have State's First Domed Stadium for High Schools

will seat 12,000 and will be the district's 3rd stadium...they have a 7th high school (Independence coming online for 2014) and an 8th school coming on in 2016. The facility will be a joint venture with the Dallas Cowboys and their new practice facility.

By David Moore and Brandon George

OXNARD, Calif. _ The Dallas Cowboys will share a domed stadium with the Frisco Independent School District that will serve as the club’s indoor practice facility and host high school football games, sources said.

The Frisco city council is scheduled to vote on the impending move of the Cowboys practice facility Monday evening. If approved, sources said Frisco officials and owner Jerry Jones will hold a press conference Tuesday on the 91-acre site located at the northwest corner of Warren Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway to discuss specifics.

One of the more intriguing specifics is the construction of an indoor facility that will benefit the Cowboys and Frisco schools.

Sources said the Cowboys and the school district will share the costs for a domed stadium that will seat a minimum of 12,000 fans for games. It will be a multi-use facility that can be re-configured to accommodate up to 22,000 for concerts and other events.

The Frisco ISD will have use of the facility on Thursday and Friday evenings for football games. As the first school district in the state with an indoor stadium, it will also be an attractive destination to host potential playoff games.

The Cowboys, meanwhile, will once again have an indoor facility for practice in inclement or freezing weather. The club chose not to erect a new facility after their practice bubble collapsed during a storm four years ago at Valley Ranch.

There are currently six schools in the Frisco ISD. A seventh will be added in 2014 and an eight in ’15. The district uses two stadiums for their high school games at the moment: Frisco ISD Memorial Stadium and FC Dallas Stadium.

Instead of building a new stadium to accommodate the addition of two more schools, Frisco ISD officials decided it was best to enter a joint venture with the Cowboys. It will be similar to the district’s arrangement with FC Dallas. The facility will include all the bells and whistles that come with a Texas high school football stadium, including locker rooms and a scoreboard.

A few years ago Allen’s new $60 million, 18,000-seat high school football stadium made national headlines for its cost and design. Eagle Stadium hosted its first game a year ago.

Will call for a $115 million in public investment by the city of Frisco and Frisco ISD. The city will pay $85 million, and Frisco ISD will pay $30 million. The Cowboys will be responsible for any cost overruns, and will pay Frisco $100,000 yearly lease payment, and will share revenue from any naming rights. The Cowboys will also be responsible for all operating costs which will be an estimated $1.5 million per year.

Frisco won't be the first.

 

A school district in Arizona opened a dome in 1991.  Holds about 6,000 for football.

 

Frisco is over 20 years too late to be the first.  But I bet it will be the nicest!

First in Texas for sure, though.

 

Look forward to playing in it (as I'm sure we will at some point, whether some non-district classic or a playoff game).

The one in Arizona is in Eager, Arizona.  My Uncle, Darwin Slade, was their long time football coach.  He is in the Arizona Football Hall of Fame.  He coached Mark Gastineau in High School there of the NY Jets fame.  It is made out of wood.

Cowboys have come a long ways.  I remember their practice facility off of Forest Lane with sheet metal surrounding the fields.  It looked like an auto salvage yard.

 

I am not sure how I see this being a good deal for City of Frisco.

What is the name of the stadium that the FCS championship is played in in the Frisco area? It is close to where the Rangers minor league team plays. 

 

Does Frisco ISD use that stadium?

Previously called Pizza Hut Park. Now just called FC Dallas Stadium.

And yes, Frisco uses that.

Frisco sounds like a happening place.

 

Had a population of 33,000 in 2000 and now has 116,000.  That's 247% population jump.   Insane.

 

They have minor league baseball in one of the best minor league parks in America.

Pizza Hut Park....or whatever it's called for the MLS FC Dallas.

I think there is a Dr Pepper center there that the Dallas Stars use..... and I think there is an NBA D-League team there too.

 

So sure....makes sense that the Cowboys land there.  And Frisco will get a world class stadium to use to boot while it rakes in the tourist dollars.

 

Allen just spent 60 million on theirs.  Frisco will benefit from all the Dallas Cowboy off season/preseason hype.  That means tons of media and fans pouring into their town to eat, drink, sleep in their hotel rooms.  Playoff games and all that entails.  Sounds like in the long run it could be a money making machine.

Dr. Pepper Arena is in Frisco. Junior teams play there and it houses the Stars official offices. Though, it's rumored they're moving closer to the AAC. Frisco definitely is a jumpin town now a days.

Can you imagine if Lufkin.... Nac....Marshall.... all in that 25-30K range.....jumped to 116,000 in TEN YEARS!???

 

I can't fathom what it would be like for people that lived there BEFORE the other 80,000 showed up.  INSANE to me. 

 

Even more amazing is that it only had 6500 in 1990 before juping to 33k in 2000!!!

 

And apparently it's known as one of the more affluent suburbs of North Dallas.  Go figure.

Well seeing as how they they are going to have eight high school football teams by 2016 and only two stadiums in the city to play in, they were going to have to spend money on new facilities anyway. They get the Cowboys in the process and once it is built they don't have to worry about maintaining it, so the initial cost is all they are spending. They get a part of the naming rights to help defray the cost. They will get a million per decade to help defray the cost. They will probably get a boatload of playoff games to help defray the cost.

Frisco is the new sports venue for DFW. Frisco Roughriders (AA affiliate of the Texas Rangers) FC Dallas (MLS) Dallas Stars (NHL) Dallas Mavericks D-League team and now the Cowboys. 32 elementary schools, 15 middle schools and our 8th high school opening soon, we have the fastest growing school district in the nation. When I moved here about 10 years ago, the population was about 35,000, as of last month we are at 134,110.

 And that 33,000 was over a 400% increase from where they were in 1990. The last time I was in Frisco it was just an unremarkable, one school 3A town and I'm not even all that terribly old.

As Plano was built out the next community to develop was Frisco. In 1980 the population of Frisco was 3,420. The only landmark was a Ford dealership at the intersection of Preston Road & 121. By 2000, the Frisco ISD was floating a $2 Billion bond to build four high schools (from one) and all the complement of middle and elementary schools.

The school is putting up $25 Million which is a reasonable amount to spend on a stadium for multiple games. My question is the economics for the city. the incremental tax revenue will play the bonds. The monies seem to be coming from tax increment tax zone, which means the property tax revenue generated in the zone will go to retire the debt and not the general operations of the city.
