FRISCO - There is no way to quantify the impact Fernando Clavijo had on the FC Dallas organization. While the club as a whole misses our dear 'Fer' on a daily basis, it is only right to celebrate his incredible legacy on soccer in the U.S.
On Saturday, as FCD opens the 2019 season, the afternoon will serve as a our own celebration of Clavijo's vibrant and incredible life.
- Clavijo's sons, Nico and Jonathan, will serve as honorary scarfers of the Lamar Hunt Statue.
- A banner for Clavijo will be unveiled next to the one honoring the late Bobby Rhine underneath the press box on the West side of the stadium.
- FC Dallas and New England Revolution players will wear armbands during the match to honor Clavijo’s legacy. Clavijo served as New England's head coach from 2000-2002.
- The FC Dallas team store and Soccer90 will sell limited-edition Fernando Clavijo scarves with 100% of the proceeds going to a charity of the family’s choice, Mount Sinai Medical Center Foundation.
Come remember our beloved Fernando the only way he would've wanted: enjoying a beautiful day of soccer and rooting on FCD to three points.
