Today in Frisco, Texas the Texas Revolution held a special press conference. It was held at the practice facility and world headquarters of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys. On hand was current Cowboys tight end Michael Gallop and Cowboys hall of Fame wide receiver Drew Pearson along with NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver and Texas Revolution General Manager Tim Brown.
The team was there to announce that for the next three seasons (2019-2021) it will be home to the CIF's Texas Revolution.
If you haven't been to The star in Frisco, Texas it is phenomenal. When the Dallas Cowboys aren't practicing, it is available to tour and also around the complex there are shops and a workout facility. I was there this past August when the Cowboys held an open practice for fans. I thought to myself sitting and watching the practice how it looks like an indoor/arena football field.
When the Dallas Cowboys are not practicing, they use The Star for high school football and for the Dallas Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) who play their home games at The Star.
This will be the Texas Revolution's third home since they started playing in 2013. Here are the Revs venues through the years and their seating capacity.
Allen Events Center: 6,275
Dr. Pepper Arena: 3,500
The Star: 15,000
The Texas Revolution will begin the hunt for ring number two when they host the Wichita Force in early March.
