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!
It's the final day of 2013 so we thought we'd test your memory on the 2013 FC Dallas season. Take the quiz and let us know how you did!
Today on Twitter, we received a fantastic picture from @RealGerm75 showing his Christmas tree decked out in FCD scarves and we're sure there's more of you out there raising your red during the holiday season so we thought we'd put together a little contest.
Over the next two days, send us your pictures and videos on Twitter and Instagram using #FCDChristmas showing us how you inject a little #DTID into your holiday season! Whether it's red and white hoops on your cookies, wearing your FCD jersey while having a family kickaround or showing us those great gifts you received from ShopFCDallas.com, submit your holiday pictures and videos to us using #FCDChristmas!
We'll put our favorite submissions into a Storify that will be featured on the FC Dallas website and one randomly selected submission(only one prize entry per account) will win four tickets to a 2014 FC Dallas home game!
Send us those pictures and show us how you raise your red during the holidays!

This weekend brings the annual Bobby Rhine Invitational back to the Toyota Soccer Center. The U-11 through U-16 tournament brings nearly 50 teams to Frisco with the U-13 through U-16 divisions serving as a qualifier to Dr Pepper Dallas Cup.
With the tournament coming over the weekend of Thanksgiving, we want to encourage everyone to bring new or gently used soccer gear whether it's cleats, shorts, socks, jerseys or even school supplies.
The donations will be going to a special cause as our U-14 Academy team will once again be headed to Bolivia next year for the prestigious Tahuichi invitational. While in Bolivia, the kids will be visiting the Menuts Del Mon Orphanage and donating all the gear collected at the Bobby Rhine Invitational.
The collection box will be set up by the concession stand near field 10 so bring your soccer gear donations to the Bobby Rhine Invitation at the Toyota Soccer Center this weekend!

We're down to the final 16 of the MLSsoccer.com Save of the Year competition! Raul Fernandez had three saves nominated and while we're still waiting to see if one of them advanced to the round of 16, we know that two of the Peruvians saves have made it to the second round. In fact, they're matched up against each other in today's vote!
Now here's where it gets tricky, we don't want to vote equally and have neither of them advance so we're encouraging all FCD fans to vote for Raul's save vs. Los Angeles to up the votes for that one and get Superman into the final round of Save of the Year voting! You can vote through 1:59AM on Thursday, November 14 so get to clicking!
