The Dallas Stars are a professional ice hockey team located in Dallas, Texas, that play as a member in the 31-team National Hockey League (NHL). Founded in 1967 as the Minnesota North Stars, the team moved to Dallas in 1993 and since then, the club has made 15 playoff appearances, won 8 division titles, captured two Presidents’ Trophies, and won the 1999 Stanley Cup. The team has made it an organizational priority to expose the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex to hockey and has done so by constructing and operating Children’s Health StarCenters throughout the area. When the team first set foot in Texas, there were five total sheets of ice in the area (two of which were at shopping malls and didn’t host hockey). At that time, there were no high school or travel hockey teams, while only 200 local children were playing the sport and just 225 adults playing in recreational leagues. As of the Summer of 2018, there were more than 13,000 North Texas kids and nearly 8,000 adults skating and playing recreational hockey on over 20 sheets of ice in the area, including more than 40 high school hockey teams participating in the Stars-run AT&T Metroplex High School Hockey League. The team is currently owned by Tom Gaglardi and has its executive offices and practice facility at Comerica Center in Frisco, Texas.
The Dallas Mavericks are a professional basketball team based in Dallas, Texas, USA. They are members of the Southwest Division of the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Founded in 1980, the Mavericks have won three division titles (1987, 2007, 2010) two conference championship (2006, 2011) and one NBA Championship in 2011. The Mavericks current home is The American Airlines Center. The Dallas Mavericks currently have 726 consecutive home sell-outs including Playoffs, which is the 2nd longest active streak in the NBA and across all professional sports in North America (Portland is at 814). Since Mark Cuban purchased the Mavericks on January 4th, 2000, Mavs home games have become more than just an ordinary NBA event – they have become a total entertainment experience complete with a party atmosphere. Most of the current success can be attributed to their superstar Dirk Nowitzki (retired). Only one player in the history of the NBA has scored more points than Dirk Nowitzki’s 31,560, that player is LeBron James. The German has, by now, accomplished just about all you can in the league, but after 21 seasons he’s still pushing as hard as ever. Dirk is as unique a player as there’s ever been in this league, and after all this time, he’s still hungry for another title.
Designed by architectural wizard David M. Schwarz and Dallas based HKS, Inc., American Airlines Center is considered one of the nation’s top arenas.

Billboard identified American Airlines Center the 6th busiest arena in the U.S. and the 10th busiest in the world in 2017.
The Nashville Predators became the National Hockey League’s 27th team on May 4, 1998 and have evolved from a young expansion franchise into a staple of the Middle Tennessee community in the 17 years since. The team is led by the only general manager in franchise history, David Poile, two-time Jack Adams Finalist and Stanley Cup-winner Peter Laviolette, and is anchored three-time Vezina Trophy finalist Pekka Rinne, and a blend of rising young talent and experienced veterans.
