Sources: Cowboys In Process Of Finalizing Stadium Naming-Rights Deal With AT&T
Published July 23, 2013
I'M MOVIN' OUT: The DALLAS MORNING NEWS' Moore reports Cowboys officials are in the "final stages of negotiations to move their practice facility to Frisco." Sources said that work "remains before the team severs ties with its home of 28 years at Valley Ranch in Irving to travel north." It is "doubtful an announcement will be made in the next few days or weeks." But sources "speak in terms of when, not if, the club departs Valley Ranch." It appears the new facility will be "part of the Frisco Station project," a 317-acre mixed-use development. Irving has made a "strong bid to retain the Cowboys." Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne yesterday said that city negotiators have "suggested several locations for a new facility, including the land where Texas Stadium once stood." Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck also "met with the Cowboys more than three months ago to inform them of his city’s interest." Cluck has said that he always "considered the stadium the most important asset for Arlington but considered the opportunity to land the practice facility a bonus." But the deal Frisco officials have put in place and their "persistence to get something done have left competitors in their wake" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 7/23).
