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!
