FC Dallas Special Olympics Team, Supported by Globe Life

The 2016 FC Dallas Special Olympics team, supported by Globe Life will play three games in 2016, traveling to Sporting Kansas City on Sunday, June 19th and the Colorado Rapids on July 23rd while hosting the Chicago Fire on July 16th at Toyota Stadium. Last year, the FCDSO team played the Los Angeles Galaxy SO team in a home-and-home series winning 5-4 on aggregate.

With support from the FC Dallas Foundation and Globe Life, twenty athletes and coaches from the DFW metroplex will had the exciting opportunity of a lifetime to represent the FC Dallas family. 

This partnership between FC Dallas, Special Olympics Texas and Globe Life is a unique program that provides training, competitions and social experiences for individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families.

New to the experience in 2015 was the opportunity for one member of the FC Dallas Special Olympics team to represent his team at the MLS All-Star Game in the Special Olympics Unified Match featuring athlete-representatives from each MLS team and an FC Dallas player will have the opportunity to do that again at the 2016 All-Star Game in San Jose.
