My visit to Ford Center at The Star will go down as the most unexpected event that I have ever encountered. Due to circumstances out of my control with the weather, I was temporarily displaced to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for several days.
While in the area, the topic of attending Dallas Cowboys training camp came up and I knew I had to take advantage of this unexpected opportunity.
Here are my thoughts on Ford Center at The Star.
The location of The Star is definitely one that is on the rise. The entire area surrounding the Ford Center is under construction but the areas that are already completed are amazing.
Surrounding the Ford Center at The Star are numerous shops and restaurants that can be enjoyed every day of the week. There is also an Omni Hotel connected to the building to provide lodging for individuals looking to extend their stay in the area. This also creates an opportunity for the area to continue their growth as major hotel brands and restaurant chains have taken stake in the community.
The parking and tickets for training camp are free and the parking attendants escort you to the all of the parking areas. The concessions inside of the Ford Center are your traditional game day refreshments. They have hot dogs, nachos, pretzels and popcorn among other snacks.
They also had a signature souvenir cup which was a surprise since the event was not an official event. The most exciting thing I discovered while in the Ford Center is that Frisco ISD uses the facility on Friday nights for local high school football games. That has to be an amazing experience for the local high school kids to have the opportunity play in an indoor facility.
There are no negatives when visiting The Star. Every need that you can consider is met by this facility and more. Since its main usage is as a practice facility for the Dallas Cowboys, I can say that this is one of the best facilities I have came across on any level.
Overall Game Day Experience
I would give Ford Center at The Star a 10 out of 10. The location is perfect and the food selections are more than you would expect for a facility on this scale.
There is also a lot of parking by the Ford Center at The Star. The concession prices are reasonable and quite fitting for the Frisco ISD high school games. If you are in the Frisco, TX area from August to December, this location is definitely one to visit.
