Equipped with shovels, owner and general manager Jerry Jones and son Stephen, the Cowboys' chief operating officer, were on hand to do the honors.

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, along with Rowdy, the team's mascot, were at the club's future home, which is currently a 91-acre expanse of dirt.

The team is scheduled to move to the new headquarters in 2016. Initial plans for the public-private partnership were announced just over a year ago.

Equipment deliveries to the site began in June, and construction at the site began last month.

Jerry Jones left shortly after the groundbreaking to get on a plan for Miami, where he'll join the team before its third preseason game against the Dolphins Saturday.
