FRISCO, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys are celebrating with leaders of a Dallas suburb a day after overwhelming approval was given to a $115 million deal to build an indoor stadium and relocate team headquarters to Frisco.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his son, executive vice president Stephen Jones, made a quick trip home from training camp in Oxnard, Calif., for a news conference Tuesday to discuss the new practice facility expected to open by 2016.

Frisco is 30 miles north of Dallas and ranks among the fastest-growing cities in the country. It's home to FC Dallas of Major League Soccer, a minor league affiliate of baseball's Texas Rangers and the training facility for hockey's Dallas Stars.

The deal will end a four-decade relationship between the Cowboys and the suburb of Irving.
