FC Dallas Tickets
FC Dallas is well-known for its passionate fan base and top-ranked developmental system. The team will always have a claim to fame for its important place in the history of American soccer as one of the 10 founding members of MLS during the inaugural 1996 season. Though originally known as the Dallas Burn, the club adopted its current name in 2005. In its best-ever finish, the club advanced to the 2010 MLS Cup final, where it lost 2-1 to the Colorado Rapids. FC Dallas won the 2016 MLS Supporters’ Shield for the best overall league record that season. It is also a two-time winner of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup, the country’s longest-running soccer tournament, scoring victories in 1997 and 2016. Jason Kreis, who played for the club between 1996 and 2004, is the all-time leading scorer with 91 goals and 65 assists in regular-season play. In 1999, he became the first American-born player ever to win the MLS MVP Award.

What was the club’s record last season?
FC Dallas finished the 2019 MLS regular season as the seventh seed in the Western Conference with 48 points and a 13-12 win-loss record, plus nine draws. The season concluded with a first-round exit in the MLS Cup playoffs against the second seed and eventual champion Seattle Sounders by a score of 4-3 in extra time.
Who is the team’s biggest rival?
FC Dallas shares a state rivalry with the fellow Texas club the Houston Dynamo. Since 2006, this Texas rivalry, known as the Texas Derby, acknowledges the season’s winner each year with a replica of an 18th-century mountain howitzer cannon named El Capitan. The derby is primarily determined by an annual series in the MLS regular season. However, the clubs have also met in the MLS Cup playoffs and the US Open Cup on several occasions. The series is tightly contested each year. In 2017, Dallas and Houston tied during each of their three matchups.
Who is the head coach?
Luchi Gonzalez was named the seventh head coach in FC Dallas history on December 16th, 2018. It is his first head coaching experience of a major club, though he has a long history with the sport. Between 2012 and 2018, he was the Academy Director for FC Dallas and in 2016, he led the U-16 team to its second straight US Soccer Development Academy National Championship. The U-17 and U-19 teams have also flourished under his leadership.
How large is the venue where FC Dallas plays?
Toyota Stadium, located in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, opened in 2005 as one of the first soccer-specific stadiums in MLS. With a maximum seating capacity of 20,500 spectators, the stadium complex houses the National Soccer Hall of Fame and a Walk of Fame, plus numerous fields and facilities for its developmental program.Back to Top
