DALLAS, TexasPlano Independent School District’s John Clark Stadium will serve as the 2010 home for the Dallas Vigilantes’ two-week training camp and will be the team’s season-long practice facility, the Vigilantes announced Friday. 

The Vigilantes are a first-year member of the Arena Football League and open training camp on Monday, March 15. The Vigilantes will practice daily through Friday, March 26, between the hours of 7-10 a.m. All practices will be open to the general public.

 “We are very excited to be a partner with the Dallas Vigilantes in their inaugural season,” Plano ISD Assistant Athletic Director Chris Feris said. 

The AFL, which is comprised of 15 teams, will play a 16-game schedule leading into the playoffs and the Arena Bowl the third weekend in August. 

“We continue to strive to partner with the best organizations throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex and we have certainly done so in selecting a practice facility,” said Dave Whinham, President of the Dallas Vigilantes. “Clark Stadium is one of the best football facilities in North Texas and our players will benefit from working in such a first-class facility.” 

Clark Stadium will also be host to the Vigilantes’ final open tryout, which will be held on Saturday, March 13. The camp will offer the final chance for players to make an impression on the Vigilantes coaching staff in hopes of being added to the 2010 training camp roster. The Vigilantes have already signed one player from a previous open tryout session. 

The first week of training camp will be important for the Vigilantes, as they will be gearing up for a preseason game on March 21 at the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings. Five dollars of every ticket sold will go directly to the Red Cross for the Haitian relief.  

The Vigilantes open the 2010 season on April 10, when they travel to play the Tulsa Talons. Dallas will open their 2010 home schedule at the American Airlines Center on April 30 when they host the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz. 

Tickets for the 2010 season of Dallas Vigilantes football are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Vigilantes’ offices at 972.378.5454. For more information, fans can log on to   


The Dallas Vigilantes are bringing Arena Football back to the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex this spring when they take the field at the world-class American Airlines Center. The Vigilantes are owned and operated by Peter C. “Woody” Kern, a resident of Pilot Point, TX, and one of the most successful owners in the history of the AFL. Kern previously owned the Tampa Bay Storm for 14 years, where his club won three ArenaBowl championships and appeared in four title games.
