FC Dallas Midfielder Paxton Pomykal to Have Season-Ending Knee Surgery


FRISCO, Texas (March 26, 2024) – FC Dallas midfielder Paxton Pomykal will undergo season-ending surgery to address cartilage damage in his left knee. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Bert Mandelbaum in Los Angeles in April. An update on Pomykal’s recovery will be provided upon completion of the surgery.

“Paxton is such an important part of our club,” said FC Dallas Sporting Director André Zanotta. “While losing him for the 2024 season is a setback, he’s a mature, dedicated player whose focus will be on supporting the team and remaining a part of everything we do this year.” 

The 24-year-old Homegrown made a six-minute appearance in FC Dallas’ season-opening win over the San Jose Earthquakes on February 24. In 2023, Pomykal appeared in 24 matches, starting in 19 and registering three assists.
