We're one week out from Cocktails & Cleats, and even though we're not allowed to show you the all-new 2014 Home Jersey presented by AdvoCare until next Thursday's season kickoff event in downtown Dallas, we are allowed to show you the 2014 Goalkeeper Jersey. As you can see in the picture above, it's pretty sharp.

It looks especially intimidating if you can manage to have smoke rising off your body like Raul. But even if you can't make the smoke thing happen, you can at least get the new jersey if you want to look a little bit more like Fernandez. The 2014 Goalkeeper Jersey is on sale now at ShopFCDallas.com in both short sleeve (right) and long sleeve styles.

We know this isn't quite the new look you're all waiting to see, but we figured this could hold you over until the big unveil next Thursday night. We'll see you then.

Welcome to the 2014 Budweiser Draught Draft! Here's how it works: we have eight Tier 1 Pub Partners and eight road matches selected for our 2014 Party at the Pubs watch party series presented by Budweiser.

Rather than randomly assign matches to our Pub Partners, we're going to let them choose their respective matches. But how do we decide who gets the first pick? Easy, we don't; that's where you come in!

Just cast your vote for your favorite Pub Partner in the poll to the right. When voting ends on Thursday (5pm CT), the pub with the most votes gets to make the first pick in the 2014 Budweiser Draught Draft. The pub with the second most votes gets the second pick, and so on and so forth.

So pick your pub and let us know who you think should get the top spot in our 2014 Party at the Pubs watch party series presented by Budweiser!

As an added benefit, $20 of every 2014 Jersey Presale purchase will be donated to the FC Dallas Foundation.

NOTICE: Presale jerseys WILL NOT BE SHIPPED (select "Cocktails & Cleats pick-up" shipping method at checkout). Jerseys purchased through this presale can be picked up in-person by the purchaser at the 2014 Cocktails & Cleats season kickoff event.

FRISCO, Texas -- It's a new year, and that means it's time once again for FC Dallas' fourth annual Cocktails & Cleats season kickoff event. But this isn't the same C&C from years' past; we've revamped the entire event to make the party bigger and better so we can get the 2014 season started right!

Join us on Thursday, March 6 from 7-10pm at F.I.G. (1807 Ross Ave. Dallas, TX 75201), our brand new downtown location, for Cocktails & Cleats 2014!

For the first time ever, admission to Cocktails & Cleats will be FREE and open to the public (21 and up only), and it will be your first chance to see the brand new 2014 FC Dallas home kit presented by AdvoCare. The FC Dallas Foundation will be accepting $10 donations that will be used to purchase soccer balls for children in Brazil during this summer's World Cup.

The event will also be your first chance to meet the full 2014 FC Dallas squad and it'll still feature a silent auction benefiting the FC Dallas Foundation. Guests will enjoy complimentary food and drinks while listening to a live DJ and mingling with their favorite FC Dallas players.

So mark your calendars now and don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind event to kick off the 2014 FC Dallas season!

The MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Finals will finish this weekend, with Sporting Kansas City hosting the Houston Dynamo Saturday night on the NBC Sports Network and Real Salt Lake visiting the Portland Timbers on ESPN Sunday night. RSL enters the second leg with a two-goal advantage after their 4-2 win at Rio Tinto Stadium two weeks ago, while Kansas City and the Dynamo played to a 0-0 draw in Houston.

FC Dallas players Matt Hedges and Eric Hassli, along with the FCDallas.com editorial staff, made their Conference Finals predictions two weeks ago, but it's still anybody's guess which two teams will wind up playing for the MLS Cup.

Let us know in the comments what your predictions are and who you think will lift the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy.

The MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Finals get started this weekend as Sporting Kansas City visits the Houston Dynamo Saturday afternoon on NBC and Real Salt Lake hosts the Portland Timbers on ESPN Sunday night. This year's Conference Finals will feature a two-week layoff, with Leg 2 taking place after the FIFA international fixture window.

FC Dallas players Matt Hedges and Eric Hassli, along with the FCDallas.com editorial staff, are back with their picks for which teams will make the MLS Cup Final. Four out of the five of us guessed the Conference Semifinals with 50% accuracy, while one predictor (who shall remain nameless) went 0-for-4 in the last round.
