FC Dallas to host playoff pep rally at Pizza Hut Park this Sunday
The event kicks off when the team returns to Pizza Hut Park from this weekend’s match against the San Jose Earthquakes. The entire FC Dallas team will be on hand to celebrate with fans in the Budweiser Beer Garden. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
Currently tied with rival Real Salt Lake, an FC Dallas win or tie against the Earthquakes on Saturday coupled with an RSL loss, would boost the defending Western Conference Champions into a spot in the Western Conference Semifinals against Seattle Sounders FC. Should RSL defeat the Portland Timbers at Rio Tinto Stadium this Saturday, Dallas would remain in the first wild card position and face the fourth place wild card team on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at Pizza Hut Park.
Bolstered by the play of MLS MVP candidate Brek Shea, FC Dallas (15-11-7, 52 points) equaled the club record for points in a season Saturday when it defeated the Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2-0. The clean sheet was also goalkeeper Kevin Hartman’s 13th of the season, further extending his franchise record.
