Frisco, TX (Sports Network) - The Dallas Cowboys have decided to move their team headquarters and training location to the city of Frisco.

Officials from the team, the Dallas suburb and the Frisco Independent School District made the announcement Tuesday, saying a multi-use special events and sports facility will be developed. The team hopes to move to its new location for the autumn of 2016.

"This is an exciting day in the history of the Dallas Cowboys," said owner Jerry Jones. "We are committed to cooperatively creating a development that will be a source of great pride for the City of Frisco, the FISD and the Dallas Cowboys. We know first-hand how world class facilities can create great interest, visibility and economic development. This is a community building partnership that will elevate and benefit all of the parties involved."

The complex will be developed on a 91-acre tract in Frisco on Collin County land located on the northwest corner of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway.

In addition to becoming the home to the Cowboys' entire football operation, including administrative offices, coaches' offices and the team's famous cheerleaders, the complex will include a multi-purpose, 12,000-seat indoor stadium and two outdoor fields that will provide facilities for use by the Cowboys, City of Frisco and Frisco ISD football and soccer games and other sports, athletic, academic, fine arts and entertainment events.

The 25-year agreement calls for at least one week of the Cowboys' preseason football training camp to be held in Frisco.

"We're elated to partner with the entire Dallas Cowboys organization and the Jones family," said Frisco Mayor Maher Maso. "Having a partner of this caliber is a perfect fit for our community."

The Cowboys' current training facility and headquarters have been located in Irving, Texas since 1985.
