FC Dallas Family,
As a fan of FC Dallas, you are part of our family. We’re committed providing relevant updates and transparent communication as we navigate an unprecedented time.
We have found ourselves in a rapidly-changing environment related to COVID-19, with developments happening almost hourly. Your health and safety along with the well-being of our staff, players and partners is our highest priority. That is why we absolutely support Major League Soccer’s decision to suspend match play."
Our players will continue to train with the expectation of resuming play at some point in the future. We will continue to keep you alerted to the most recent developments surrounding the 2020 MLS season as well as other soccer-related events.
We have a COVID-19 task force that is comprised of local medical professionals. We’re also working closely with MLS as well as federal health authorities to assess and understand additional measures should they become necessary. We are committed to working with our local leaders to provide assistance and resources to help educate our community on effective preventative measures to take in effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.
We appreciate you and your support more than ever as we navigate this dynamic situation.
Please bookmark this page as it will be continually updated with the latest information.
Monday, May 18 Update:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced today that some professional sports franchises may begin applying for approval to host events without spectators starting on May 31, 2020. FC Dallas will continue to follow guidance from Major League Soccer regarding a return to 2020 league play.
Additionally, on May 31, youth sports may begin holding practices without spectators other than one parent or guardian per participant. Youth sports competition has been cleared to resume beginning June 15, 2020 with social distancing measures recommended. Having recently returned to limited small group activity during Phase One of the State’s reopening, FC Dallas is ready to progress to full team training for its youth teams with appropriate safeguards and protocols for the health and safety of all players, staff, coaches and parents.
Your tickets for matches in the suspension window will continue to be valid when it is rescheduled for a later date. The scheduling situation regarding our 2020 season is fluid. As more information becomes available, we will communicate that with you. For questions please contact CustomerService@FCDallas.net
Effective immediately, all FC Dallas events are on pause until match play resumes in Major League Soccer. This includes Watch Parties, Foundation initiatives as well as other events throughout Dallas/Fort Worth. Information on rescheduling these events will be communicated when determined.
If you are involved in the FC Dallas Academy system:
- The health of our players, parents, and coaches remains our top priority. Given the ongoing situation with the novel COVID-19 virus, all FC Dallas Youth trainings are suspended through May 3rd. All complexes will remain closed. In the meantime, every player has been provided access to Coerver Coaching which allows our players to continue mastering their skills from home. Coaches are supporting the Coerver training regimen through regular communication with the players. This shift of focus from group to individual training will continue until such time as we are cleared to train in the team setting once more. We will maintain ongoing contact with medical experts, local, state and federal health authorities as well as the league, as we monitor this rapidly changing public health situation. We will continue to provide up-to-date information as it becomes available.
If you are involved in the FC Dallas Youth system:
The health of our players, parents, and coaches remains our top priority. Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order relating to the reopening of services including limited options for outdoor sports. While these guidelines offer some flexibility to be active in small groups, we are asking our teams to refrain from any outdoor organized trainings for the next 10 days. With that in mind, FC Dallas Youth is targeting a May 11th return to activity. We have been working on a plan to bring players and teams back in the safest manner possible. Our facilities remain closed through May 10. Next week, we will communicate our Return to Activity protocols to players, coaches, and managers in order to get back on the field with a safety-first focus. Expect more information next week regarding our plan. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time. Please stay safe and healthy. We will see you on the pitch soon.

- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Stay home if you’re sick
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
Cover coughs and sneezes
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
