September is Children's Cancer Awareness month as you'll see the players in tomorrow's match walking out with special t-shirts and we have a young woman battling cancer from our own FC Dallas family that we want to tell you about.
Ellie Slate, an absolutely soccer-mad player from the FC Dallas '04 Girls Premier team, is battling Accute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and she needs our help. MLS has send 50 limited-edition Children's Cancer Awareness scarves to be sold in the team store on Saturday night only and normally the funds would be donated to a cancer charity or hospital but with one of our own facing this awful disease, the FC Dallas Foundation will be sending all proceeds to Ellie's Gofundme account. Get your scarf tomorrow in the team store to help benefit Ellie as she battles leukemia.
If you can't make the game on Saturday but would like to donate, please follow the link below as one of our FC Dallas family battles cancer.
It’s a match-up of the young guns against the international stars in FC Dallas' lone September home match on Saturday evening as the MLS Playoff race heats up.
New York City FC will visit Toyota Stadium for the inaugural meeting between the two sides, boasting household soccer names such as David Villa, Andrea Pirlo and Frank Lampard, while Dallas will look to build on their two-game winning streak which has seen the emergence of Homegrown goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez, posting consecutive clean sheets, as well as dazzling offensive performances from rookie Michael Barrios and MLS All-Star Fabian Castillo.
With just eight games left in the 2015 season for Dallas, every game counts in a Western Conference battle that sees just six points separating the six teams currently in playoff positions, with the four teams on the outside of the playoff picture still hoping to stake their claim for post-season berth.
NYCFC, on the other hand, is fighting for their own playoff lives after struggling at times in their first season. The team is sitting just three points back of the final playoff spot in the East with seven games to play and head coach and former Dallas Burn-standout Jason Kreis has challenged his team that it’s time to step up in a do-or-die game. City comes into the weekend after a bye week on the heels of a devastating 2-1 loss to Columbus two weeks ago. The sour taste that loss left on the team is sure to add more fuel to the fire.
These two teams have combined to score over 70 goals in 2015, with many more sure to be added on Saturday night. You don’t want to miss this historic inaugural match, so secure your seat now before it’s gone!
The speedster Michael Barrios is up for MLS AT&T Goal of the Week for Week 27! Atiba Harris sprung Barrios on a long run in the 69th minute, as the Columbian split Crew SC defenders Tyson Wahl and Michael Parkhurst in the midfield and finished the play with a chip past Steve Clark to put FCD up 2-0 over Columbus. Be sure to cast your vote for the Dallas midfielder for the top spot in this week's poll!
