USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann to scarf Lamar Hunt statue at Home Opener

By Scott Brown

Fans attending the FC Dallas Home Opener against the New York Red Bulls this Sunday, March 11 are in for a special pregame treat. U.S. Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is coming to the match, and he'll serve as the honorary scarfer of the statue of Lamar Hunt on the North Concourse before the game kicks off.

FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman reached out to Klinsmann ahead of last week's historic 1-0 USMNT win over Italy, and FCD/USMNT midfielder Brek Shea seconded the invitation when he joined the team in Genoa.

Klinsmann's role in the scarfing ceremony will cap off the pregame festivities of Lamar's Tailgate.

Lamar's Tailgate starts 90 minutes before first kick (so 12:30 p.m. for March 11) on the North Concourse and features BBQ, street tacos and other food. Even better - different food and drink specials prior to every game.

The fun continues on the Budweiser Beer Garden with live music, pool ball, Bud promo girls, prizes, and more food and drink specials extended through the whole game.

The culmination of the tailgate party is the return of the scarfing ceremony of the Lamar Hunt statue, which will be performed by Klinsmann on March 11. It's sure to be a special day, so get your tickets now while they're still available.
