Just eight games remain in the MLS regular season and only four more home games! FC Dallas hosts NYCFC on Saturday night presented by Raytheon as the club looks to move within a point of the top spot in MLS with a win. Here are the ten things to know before you head to Toyota Stadium.

1. Saturday's match is presented by Raytheon and they're teaming up with DFW USO for Military Appreciation Night. Be sure to stop by their area in the northwest concourse to show your appreciation to our troops!

Ellie Slate of the FC Dallas '04 Girls Premier team is staying incredibly brave in her fight against Leukemia and 50 special limited edition scarves will be on sale in the team store on Saturday with all proceeds benefitting her Gofundme account. See how you can help here.

4. Our official match poster created by Olivia Brestal is one you definitely need to snag! Get yours for a few bucks in the team store on Saturday night.

Toyota Stadium will host four Liga MX teams – Puebla FC, Monarcas Morelia, Santos Lagunas and Club America - tonight in the annual Campeon de Campeones. We have you covered on five players to watch out for in the American debut of the ultimate championship matches:

5. Joel Huiqui (Morelia) – For a team who finished last in the 2014 Apertura and the 2015 Clausura, it’s hard to find much stardom. However, central defender Joel Huiqui is still a strong piece for the Monarcas. Infamous for swiping a ball away with his hand inside the box of the 2009 Liguilla semifinal, Huiqui is still a solid centerback who has 14 caps for Mexico’s National Team. He captained Mexico’s 2013 Gold Cup team.

4. Djaniny (Santos) – The 24-year-old Cape Verde forward has been a great addition for Santos Lagunas in his first year with the team. The attacker from Portugal’s Nacional has found his groove in Mexico becoming the second African to win Mexico’s first division title. He propelled Santos into the Clasura semifinals in May after a fine, Keane-like first touch that put him in position to score the victor over the Tigres UANL. He also scored in Sunday’s tune-up against Veracruz.

3. Michael Arroyo (Club America) – An attacking midfielder for Ecuador in its 2014 World Cup run, Arroyo has seen his starts with Los Aguilas. Arroyo has three international goals to his name. For Club America, he most recently had an assist to Quintero and a potential game-tying free kick against LA Galaxy in last Saturday’s friendly.

2. Hercules Gomez (Puebla FC) – The former MLS Cup Champion and U.S. Men’s National Team player will make his way to Toyota Stadium with Puebla FC on loan from Tijuana. Gomez made 24 appearances in the Stars and Stripes, including three games in the 2010 World Cup. He spent six seasons in the MLS from 2002-09.

1. Carlos Darwin Quintero (Club America) – It’ll be a reunion for Carlos Quintero as he faces his old squad, Santos Lagunas, who he made 225 appearances with between 2009-14. The Columbian has scored one goal in 12 appearances for his countryside, scoring a goal in a 2-1 friendly over Mexico in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl. In a tune-up against LA Galaxy in Stephen Gerrad’s debut last Saturday, Quintero put his squad up 1-0 seven minutes into the game.

We're well into the month of April and that means it's time to unveil our latest Scarf of the Month! 

In 2015, FC Dallas unveiled a beautiful new alternate blue and white jersey and while we haven't worn it yet, that time is coming soon.

Rumor has it as early as next weekend you could see the blue and white strip at Toyota Stadium and our April Scarf of the Month is a nod to our new 2015 alternate jersey.

Remember, while five of the first seven are at home, seven of the next nine after that are away from the friendly confines of Frisco and there's no better accessory to your FCD blue and white jersey than our April Scarf of the Month. 

All elements on the scarf are taken straight from the new jersey including the hoops, new MLS logo and LH logo. The opposite side is the inside neck tag. 

It's important to accessorize and there's no better way to do that than with our new April SOTM. Remember this lovely scarf is available only in the FC Dallas Team Store at Toyota Stadium and will sell out quickly so be sure to come up this week and nab yours or snag one at Friday's game vs Colorado.
