Stars In Negotiations To Hold Training Camp In Ft. Worth In September
Stars President & CEO Jim Lites said that the team is “in negotiations to hold training camp in Fort Worth in September as the first step of becoming the Southwest’s hockey team,” according to Mike Heika of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Lites said that the Stars are “close to completing a deal that is expected to produce a four-day training camp at the Fort Worth Convention Center Sept. 11-14 and also would include preseason games in San Antonio and Oklahoma City.” He said, “We’d love to expand our footprint from New Orleans to Tulsa to Houston and beyond. We want to get people excited about the Dallas Stars.” Lites added that future camps “could be held in San Antonio, Austin area or Houston, among others” (DALLASNEWS.com, 5/21). The Stars also announced that they will “unveil new uniforms and a new logo" in a 6:00pm CT event June 4 at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas. Special invitations were “sent in early May to Dallas Stars full season seat holders with instructions on how to secure a ticket” (DALLASNEWS.com, 5/21).
