The Dallas Open tennis event will move to Ford Center at The Star, the headquarters and training facility of the Dallas Cowboys NFL team, in 2025.
The move will coincide with the Dallas Open’s elevation from an ATP 250 event to an ATP 500 tournament. The event is currently played at the Styslinger/Altec Tennis Complex on the campus of Dallas’ Southern Methodist University.
Ford Center at The Star is located in Frisco, Texas. The wide-ranging complex features a 12,000-capacity stadium.
Charlotte Jones, owner and chief brand officer for the Cowboys, said: “The success of this action-packed tournament over such a short time makes it a natural draw for sports fans who flock to Ford Center at The Star in Frisco.
“This facility and campus was built not only as the world corporate headquarters for the Dallas Cowboys, but also to host world-class events like this one, and we’re thrilled to host the stars of pro tennis at Ford Center at the Star in Frisco.”
Tournament director Peter Lebedevs added: “We are thrilled that the Dallas Open has been chosen as a new ATP 500 tournament.
“We want to thank our longtime friend and Dallas local John Isner, who was very supportive of our effort to take the Dallas Open to the 500 level. We’re very excited for the thousands of enthusiastic tennis fans in the North Texas region. We’ve been building to this, and we will continue to improve all aspects of the tournament for everyone involved.”
It was announced last month that the Dallas Open will be upgraded to an ATP 500 tournament from 2025, along with events in Doha and Munich.
