Why Are Fans Suddenly Staying Away From Cowboys Training Camp?

On average, the Cowboys had almost 1,000 fans fewer at each of their 16 training camp practices this year compared to the same number of practices in 2017 in Oxnard, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The difference was noticeable, with the stands adjacent to one of the fields mostly empty for the free practices.

The Cowboys had 55,432 fans at their 16 practices in 2017 in Oxnard. This year, the total attendance dipped by 15,351 fans to a total of 40,081 for the 16 practices that concluded Thursday.

The Cowboys opened their new team headquarters at The Star in Frisco in 2016 and finished up training camp there in 2017 with a week of practices. The Cowboys break camp in Oxnard on Friday to head back to Dallas and will again conclude training camp at The Star with five practices beginning Monday.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been hesitant to cutoff the club’s connection to Oxnard and move all of training camp to The Star because of the ideal weather here for the outdoor practices and wanting to stay connected to the club’s strong Southern California fan base.

This was the 13th time since 2001 that the Cowboys held at least part of their training camp in Oxnard.
