Join us each home game for Lamar's Tailgate

MLS First Kick presented by Dick's Sporting Goods is fast approaching - just a little more than one week away.

FC Dallas fans will notice some changes which will get them into FC Dallas Stadium early and have a good time.

New for all 2012 FC Dallas Games is Lamar’s Tailgate Party.

It starts 90 minutes before first kick (so 12:30 p.m. for March 11) on the North Concourse and features BBQ, street tacos and other food. Even better - different food and drink specials prior to every game.

The fun continues on the Budweiser Beer Garden with live music, pool ball (think soccer and billiards mixed together on a giant pool table), Bud promo girls, prizes, and more food and drink specials extended through the whole game.

The culmination of the tailgate party is the return of the scarfing ceremony of the Lamar Hunt statue. Each game will have a special guest doing the scarfing.

Game starts at 2 p.m. Tickets are going fast and are on sale at and will be televised on NBC Sports Network.

For the New York Red Bulls game there will be vuvuzelas to the first 5,000 fans.
