One FC Dallas Premier team will continue visiting border states.

The U-17 FCD Premier team punched its ticket to the US Youth Soccer National Championships in Oklahoma after capturing the Region III Championship in Little Rock, Arkansas on Thursday.

FC Dallas 98 Premier claimed the Region III Championship with a 3-1 victory over familar foe FC Alliance 98 Black (TN). FCD defeated FC Alliance 1-0 in the last game of the group stage, and the two teams met again in the final Thursday. The U-17s struck early and never looked back, netting all three goals in the first half with a pair of goals from the foot of Gerber Chavez. 

Nationals begin with the round robin July 21-23 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. If FCD advances, the team will play the semifinal July 25 and final July 26.

FC Dallas 97 Gold was a match away from continuing on the "Road to Oklahoma" but fell just shy in the Region III Championship with a 6-2 loss to NASA 15 Elite (GA); a team who had four clean sheets in five games heading into the final. The U-18s scored seconds into the game and were within one with four minutes left, but a trio of late goals put the game away for NASA. FCD had a thriller en route to the final with a 5-4 defeat over Bryson Park/KSA 97 Premier (GA) in overtime after being squared at one apiece at the end of regulation.

We just got done watching FC Dallas #CrushTheOrange at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston last Friday and while you'll have to wait until the end of June for another MLS Texas Derby, our FC Dallas Academy hosts the Dynamo this Sunday in the annual Academy Day at Toyota Stadium! 

The U-18s kick things off at 2:00PM in what is not only the final home match for our graduating U-18 players, but it's an enormous match in the standings.

Just a few weeks ago, the U-18s were ten points behind Houston in the Frontier Division standings, but a 7-0-1 run in their last eight games coupled with the Dynamo slipping up last weekend means the U-18s are only five points behind Houston with five games left including two games in hand on their I-45 rivals. 

As everyone knows, results are not the be all end all when it comes to developing players, but FCD has won the U-18 division nearly every season of existence including the last two years and we want to defend that title. 

The U-16 match follows at 4:30PM and if you haven't seen these guys play, they're dang fun to watch. Wingers Devin Vega and Toshiki Yasuda have combined to score 34 goals in 20 games this season while the entire squad has logged an incredible 17-2-3 record this season. They can seal the U-16 Frontier Division with four games left in the season if they grab a win on Sunday.

Admission is completely free, there will be street tacos and drinks on sale and you have a great opportunity to see the future of FC Dallas on a special day for them as they close out their home schedule in the 2014-2015 season before the playoffs begin! 

*NOTE* Please enter through the north gates on Sunday.

On March 22-25, 2015 the Japanese Football Association (JFA) brought in their U16 Women’s National Team to Toyota Soccer Center to play the highly touted FC Dallas ECNL program.  The teams lined up against each other for the first time on March 24th  when the FC Dallas ECNL group defeated the JFA 2-0.   Goals from Mississippi State commit Natalee Heiser and fourteen-year-old Olyvia Dowell were enough for the FC Dallas ECNL side to come out on top.  Post-game the two groups of players were able to socialize, exchange gifts, and head over to Babe’s Chicken for some Texas food & hospitality.  

On March 25th the two sides matched up again, and this day the teams fought to a 1-1 draw.  The FC Dallas goal came from leading scorer Jordan Mulnix.  Before the game Japanese group were excited to get to tour the FC Dallas facilities and stadium.  Their favorite part of the tour was getting to see the pro team locker rooms and actually getting to meet and take pictures with several of the first-team stars.  The JFA U16 Women’s National team departed the next day but have already started making plans to return in 2016.
