The response was overwhelming from our amazing fans and Season Ticket Members with hundreds of submissions for why they're the biggest FC Dallas fan and on Valentine's Day, FC Dallas announced that our #ShareTheLove grand prize winners were STM Matthew Shadonix and FC Dallas fan Angela Shipp!
Matthew had this awesome story about his son Jack
Our 5-year old son, Jack, is the perfect FCD fan. Like FCD, he is young, dedicated and homegrown. He actually cried when Santa failed to bring him season tickets last year, despite them being first on his list (we didn’t really think a 4-year old knew what “season tickets” were). We remedied Santa’s error and he did not miss a game last year. He insists on tailgating for hours so as “not to miss anything” on match days, and overcame his shy nature to ask each player to sign his poster. His prize possession is his team signed jersey and for his birthday, he wants us to schedule a trip out of state to an away game. When Kellyn Acosta resigned, I caught him telling his “Elf on the Shelf” the good news and again asking Santa to renew our seats. When Walker Zimmerman resigned, he ran through the cafeteria telling his friends. Jack loves this team and especially that it keeps loving him back.
He then Tweeted out this adorable video on Monday morning of Jack being informed that he won!
Our field seats winner, Angela Shipp, told us about her granddaughter Sophie!
If I were to win, it would be more for my 9 year old granddaughter, Sophie. She is an absolute soccer fanatic! She has played since she was old enough. Being a little smaller than most children her age has not slowed her down on the soccer field. This past season she played her first indoor game. My husband and I attended a few games last season and have told her how fun they are. We would love to have her experience it first hand! For her project at school she did a hero project. She even chose a professional soccer player as her hero.
Thank you to everyone who entered and we'll see you at opening night!
