FRISCO -- Kevin Hartman is seeing the world thanks to two FC Dallas supporters.

Well, the Hartman bobblehead, that is.

And the veteran goalkeeper is more than happy to log on to Facebook each day and find out what his recently released bobblehead has been up to.

“I feel like Flat Stanley,” Hartman said. “It’s been great. I haven’t really had the opportunity to travel to England, which is really weird for someone who’s played professional soccer for 16 years.”

Among the destinations bobblehead Kevin Hartman has visited include Wimbledon, London’s Tower Bridge and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Supporters Jon and Brenda Beard are making sure the bobblehead hits all the hot spots.

“It’s cool,” Hartman said. “I’m living vicariously through my bobblehead.”

NEW YORK – ¡MLS Futbolito!™, one of the nation’s most successful grassroots soccer initiatives, celebrates its 10th anniversary with its 2012 tour, returning to soccer fields across the United States this summer, as thousands of soccer players of all ages will again lace up their cleats to participate in Major League Soccer’s official 4-v-4 tournament, hosted locally by MLS clubs. The national tour makes its stop in North Texas on July 28 at FC Dallas Stadium.

MLS Futbolito, one of the largest touring Hispanic events hosted by a U.S. professional sports league, is a series of all-day events targeting the League’s growing multicultural fan base and hosted by the local MLS clubs. Approximately 50,000 people, between participants ages 6 to 55 and spectators, attended MLS Futbolito 2011 across eight events from coast to coast.

“It is with great pride that Major League Soccer celebrates the 10th anniversary of ¡MLS Futbolito!™,” said Russell Sargeant, senior director of partnership marketing for MLS. “Hundreds of thousands of participants have enjoyed this grassroots initiative over the years. It has become an event for the whole family to attend. We would also like to thank all of our corporate partners who have contributed to making this program possible. Without their commitment and support, ¡MLS Futbolito!™ would not be the success that we see today.”

MLS Futbolito will continue to work with MLS W.O.R.K.S., the League’s community outreach initiative to support programs such as Active Bodies Active Minds, a soccer-center initiative that provides resources to motivate, reward and encourage children to live a healthy lifestyle through fitness and nutrition.

Associate level partners for MLS Futbolito are adidas, Allstate, The Home Depot, Makita, Pepsi, Quaker, Volkswagen and Xbox.
