FC Dallas

Soccer in Texas might not have the century-old roots that it does in some parts of the world, but don’t let that fool you: The beautiful game is alive and thriving in the Lone Star State. Since 1995, FC Dallas has been a stalwart member of Major League Soccer (MLS), painting the town red with a mix of high-octane soccer and a vibrant fan culture.

Established as one of the ten charter clubs of MLS, FC Dallas has been synonymous with the growth of the league. The team’s trophy cabinet bears the fruits of their labor, most notably the 2016 U.S. Open Cup and the Supporters’ Shield from the same year.
