David Greenleaf, a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan, visited the team’s new world headquarters recently and was so excited he told all his Facebook friends he was going to become a member of the gym at the facility.
But this isn’t in Arlington where one of the most spectacular stadiums in the world sits; it’s in Frisco. The Cowboys recently built The Star in Frisco, which is a 91-acre campus that hosts the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys.
In addition to playing home to the corporate offices and practice facility, The Star in Frisco features the Ford Center—a state-of-the-art indoor football stadium that will host a variety of events, an entertainment district lined with restaurants and shops, the Omni hotel, a medical center and more.
The Star in Frisco offers an experience for fans worldwide to take a look inside the entire operation of the Dallas Cowboys and to workout like a Cowboy.
“It’s awesome,” Greenleaf said. “As soon I return from vacation I am joining.”
