Third-annual Special Olympics match to follow FC Dallas vs LA Galaxy on Saturday night

For the third straight year, Toyota Stadium will play host to a special doubleheader on Saturday night as directly following the FC Dallas vs LA Galaxy match, the FC Dallas Special Olympics Texas team supported by Globe Life will host the LA Galaxy Special Olympics Southern California team in a 50-minute match. 

The game is part of a two-legged series between FCDSOTX and LASOSO as our FCD team will travel to California to face the Galaxy directly following the match at the StubHub Center on September 26th. Both weekend's will be special for both sides as the teams will go to the Texas Rangers game on Friday night together and partake in other fun activities while in California both squads will visit an Anaheim Ducks game and much more! 

Additionally, Doug Sullivan from the FCDSOTX team will have the honor of scarfing the Lamar Hunt statue before Saturday's game at 7:30PM on the north concourse.

FC Dallas encourages all fans to stay after the MLS match to support both sides in what is always a fun and joyous night. Saturday's match will feature full introductions with animated player video and much more as well as many of our game presentation elements including FC Drum, Tex Hooper and more! 

In 2013, the FCDSO squad's inaugural home match they took an 8-2 victory. Last season, the FCDSO Squad took home a 2-0 win over the Colorado Rapids SO team in an unforgettable match.

The games are about so much more than the score, however, as the competitors display their amazing teamwork, attitude and athleticism. It truly is a special night at Toyota Stadium and we encourage all our fans to stay afterward and cheer on both teams!
