FC Dallas Statement on Major League Soccer’s Ruling

We are in receipt of Major League Soccer’s ruling today.  

Prior to FC Dallas’ match against Orlando City SC, FCD technical director Fernando Clavijo sought clarification from the matchday officials regarding the number of substitutes Dallas would have available during the match after Michael Barrios was removed from the Starting XI. The referee crew’s administrative error led to the misinterpretation of MLS rules.

FC Dallas is battling for a playoff spot. Our sole focus is on the final three games left in the regular season and qualifying for the playoffs, starting with our match in Colorado on Saturday.

We won’t have any further comment at this time.
