FC Dallas to throw pre-playoff bash at Mockingbird Station

FRISCO, Texas (Oct. 20, 2010) – One of the hottest teams in Major League Soccer, FC Dallas is inviting the DFW Metroplex to join the playoff party with a pep rally at Mockingbird Station from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 26. The event is the culmination of the first-ever FC Dallas Playoff Pub Tour, which has seen FCD players and dancers meet with fans at Pub Partners around the Metroplex.

The entire FC Dallas team and the FC Dallas dancers will be on the patio outside Trinity Hall and Deux Lounge enjoying live music, food and drinks with fans. Deux Lounge will be offering half price well drinks, domestic beers and house wine during the event. In addition, several Mockingbird Station vendors will be offering special discounts to FC Dallas fans:

Ann Taylor Loft – 20 percent off full price purchase when you mention FC Dallas or are wearing FC Dallas gear
Rockfish Seafood Grill – extending happy hour specials through 10 p.m. and 1/2 price appetizers for those in FC Dallas gear ($2 beers and wells, $3 margaritas and house wines)
Vapiano – Dine in and receive buy one, get one free pizza when you’re wearing FC Dallas gear
Deux Lounge – extending happy hour specials through the evening (1/2 off wells, domestics and house wine)

Head coach Schellas Hyndman and team captain Daniel Hernandez will address the crowd as the team readies for its first-round playoff game later that week.

This weekend is a pivotal one for FC Dallas, as their first-round playoff opponent hinges on the outcome of several MLS games scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. FC Dallas will play either the star-studded Los Angeles Galaxy or defending MLS Cup Champions Real Salt Lake in a home-and-away series. FC Dallas will host the first leg of the series presented by Cash America on either Thursday, Oct. 28 or Saturday, Oct. 30.

FC Dallas has only lost three matches all season, one fewer than Real Salt Lake. An FC Dallas win or tie in Los Angeles this weekend would give the team the all-time MLS record for fewest losses in a season. FC Dallas has already tied the all-time MLS record for an unbeaten streak (19-games) and shattered the all-time MLS record for a road unbeaten streak (12-games) this season.
