The Dallas Cowboys are headed to Hawaii this summer for a preseason game.
The team announced it will face the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, Aug. 17 for a 9 p.m. CT kickoff at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. It will be the second preseason game of the year for both teams.
Tickets are now available at TheRams.com.
The game will be a rematch of the Rams’ 30-22 playoff victory on Jan. 12 that ended the Cowboys 2018 season.
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 on Jan. 12 in Los Angeles.
The two teams will meet later in the regular season at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The Cowboys haven’t announced their full preseason schedule and the league hasn’t released the 2019 season either.
The Cowboys-Rams preseason game will be the first NFL preseason at Aloha Stadium since San Francisco faced the old San Diego Chargers in 1976. Additionally, Aloha Stadium was the home for the Pro Bowl in every year but two from 1979 through 2016 when it moved to Orlando, Fla. The Pro Bowl was played in 2009 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., and in 2014 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
In addition to the game, the Rams also announced a variety of community events that they will be holding in the week leading up to the game. They include a tournament and skills competition for 16 high school teams on the islands and visits with military personnel.
