FC Dallas hosts a Dallas Soccer Tribute Match to honor all past Dallas professional soccer players including those that played for the Dallas Tornado (North American Soccer League), Dallas Sidekicks (Major Indoor Soccer League), and Dallas Burn / FC Dallas (Major League Soccer).
The event is a reminder of Dallas' soccer heritage and a chance for fans to see favorite players from the past.
Typically, the Tribute Match is played before an FC Dallas match and is played in 25-minute halves. All alumni in attendance are also recognized at halftime of a FC Dallas match that same day.
The inaugural Tribute Match was played June 13, 2009 at Toyota Stadium.
