The Dallas Stars and the City of Mansfield formally announced today the construction of a StarCenter in Mansfield with a groundbreaking ceremony on the site of the new two-sheet ice rink facility in Mansfield, Texas. The brand new StarCenter, located at 1715 E. Broad St., is scheduled to open its doors to the public in late 2017.

"The construction of the StarCenter in Mansfield is a testament to the growth and success of hockey in the North Texas region," Dallas Stars Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Jason Farris said. "For many years, we have seen the growing demand for a StarCenter facility in the southeastern area of Tarrant County due to the rapidly increasing number of individuals participating in hockey and skating programs from this region. From our very first discussions with Mayor David Cook and the City of Mansfield, the vision of city leaders to help make Mansfield the best place to live and work in the Metroplex made them the perfect partner in this endeavor. We are elated to work with them and look forward to the Stars organization being part of the fabric of the community for many years to come."

The StarCenter in Mansfield will become the eighth StarCenter location in the area, joining existing facilities in Euless, Farmers Branch, Frisco, Irving, McKinney, Plano and Richardson.
