FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys will head to Hawaii this preseason.
The team announced it will face the L.A. Rams Saturday, Aug. 17 (9 p.m. Central) – the third week of preseason – at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. It will be the second preseason game of the year for both teams.
Tickets are now available on TheRams.com/Hawaii and can be purchased on-site at Aloha Stadium.
Technically, it will be a ‘home’ game for the L.A. and a rematch of sorts after the Rams beat Dallas 30-22 in the NFC divisional round in mid-January.
The teams are also scheduled to face each other in the regular season at AT&T Stadium. The full preseason and regular-season schedule will be announced at a later date.
The Cowboys-Rams preseason matchup will mark the first time the NFL has played an exhibition game at Aloha Stadium since 1976, when the 49ers faced the Chargers. Aloha Stadium was also the home for the Pro Bowl every year since 1979 (except in 2009 at Sun Life Stadium and 2014 at University of Phoenix Stadium) until the game moved to Orlando, Fla. in 2016.
This will also be the 36th neutral site preseason game for the Cowboys -- the 28th non-Pro Football Hall of Fame Game and the 10th outside of the 48 contiguous states.
The last time the Cowboys played a neutral site preseason game was the Hall of Fame Game in 2017 (vs. Arizona). The last preseason game outside of the contiguous 48 states was in 2001 in Mexico City, Mexico (vs. Oakland).
The Cowboys and Rams have made their training camp homes on the West Coast in recent years. The Rams relocated back to L.A. in 2016, and the Cowboys have trained in Oxnard, Calif., 12 times since 2004.
