As part of FC Dallas' 2013 Get In & Win Campaign last year, the club gave fans the opportunity to register for a once-in-a-lifetime U.S. Men's National Team Tour; the grand prize being a trip for two to each of the USMNT's five home World Cup Qualifiers in 2013. Of the thousands of entries, one lucky fan was chosen at random to win two plane tickets, a hotel stay and a pair of tickets to each of the USMNT's home games during the Hexagonal. That lucky fan was Russell Moore, who enjoyed the first of five trips with his wife, Renee, as the U.S. played Costa Rica at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Colorado last Friday. Russell has agreed to write an exclusive blog for FCDallas.com after each of his trips, and last week's was a memorable one:

The first leg of our USA soccer tour took us to Denver for the USA vs. Costa Rica Game. While the weather became a bit challenging, the game was fantastic! We stayed in a hotel in the downtown Denver area and had a great time visiting with other USA soccer fans. When we arrived to the game, we joined other fans in the lower deck of the stadium and had a great time chanting “USA” with them. Our seats were fantastic and had the best view of the pitch. Seeing our USA players up close, including Brek Shea, was the highlight of our trip.

Thank you to FC Dallas for the opportunity to attend this great match! We look so forward to the other USA matches to come.

Sincerely,

Russell and Renee Moore
