FC Dallas held its annual Soccer 101 for Women presented by AdvoCare on Wednesday night and the evening was filled with fun and some learning.

Attendees who had pre-registered for one of the coveted spots arrived in time for complementary food and drinks provided by Legends.

The crowd was then split into five groups who rotated through the various stations in FC Dallas Stadium.

Kevin Hartman and Ugo Ihemelu answered questions in the FC Dallas locker room about what it's like to be a professional soccer player.

Daniel Hernandez and play-by-play announcer Mark Followill explained the rules of the game and also took questions.

Ricardo Villar and assistant coach Marco Ferruzzi hosted a soccer skills challenge on the field for attendees.

Kelly Jacobson, wife of Andrew, discussed what it's like to be a spouse of a professional soccer player.

Athletic trainer Skylar Richards explained player fitness and tips for attendees who also play sports.

At the end of the night everyone received a gift bag for attending and a lucky few won door prizes like autographed memorabilia.

Gift and raffle items were provided by AdvoCare, Planet Tan and yellow tail - all proud partners of FC Dallas.

Nearly 800 Korean-Americans who live in North Texas attended Saturday's match between FC Dallas and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

The outing was organized to see Vancouver defender YP Lee, who was one of the stars of the 2002 World Cup South Korean National Team.

But according to a local Korean publication, the atmosphere and thrilling match won over many people in attendance. The whole story is worth a read, but here's an excerpt:

 

Charles Kim of Carrollton said he found a new love, namely FC Dallas.

"I’m a big soccer fan. And I knew that we had FC Dallas as our home team but this was the first time I actually attended FC Dallas game" said Park.

"I mean, aside from the YP Lee attraction, I’m glad I came to this game because it reminded me that we have a great home team to root for" said Park.

Young Sun Choi of Plano said her two sons had a blast. "My kids play in the Korean Soccer Association’s Youth League. So, they love soccer. Unfortunately they were both born here and they don’t know who YP Lee is. But they became FC Dallas fans after the game. They are already begging for FC Dallas jersey. The stadium is very nice and my husband wants to bring the kids to FC Dallas game regularly from now on" said Choi.

Dallas Observer BrewFest took over the Dallas Arts District on Saturday night with more than 150 brewing companies at the event. 

From the gates opening at 6 until security finally pushed everyone out at 11 p.m., the FC Dallas Girls were passing out pint glasses, tshirts, and posters to the crowd of more than 3,000 people. 

At the FC Dallas booth, Brewfest attendees entered our raffle of the night which promised the lucky winners an autographed ball or tickets to the final regular season home game against Chivas USA.

Getting to FC Dallas Stadium on Sunday will require some thoughtful planning if you live near 635 and the Tollway.

Major demolition and construction projects this weekend will wreak havoc with traffic at the interchange -- so, we want to give all our DTID fans a heads up so you get to FC Dallas Stadium on time to watch FCD battle Seattle.

If you want full details on the step-by-step demolition and lane rerouting that will occur, you can go to the website of the construction project.

But long story short - don't take 635 or the Tollway to go north if you live in that area or use it to get to the match.

If you live near 635 & the Tollway, a side street like Preston or Midway might be best to skip around the mess and then get back on the Tollway a few blocks north.

If you live far enough west or east, I-35 or Central Expressway is a better choice. You can take both north to the George Bush Turnpike and then take the Turnpike to the Tollway.

Construction is scheduled to be occurring post-match, so use those alternate routes to get home, too.
