“We renew our vows every other year. Our wedding was on Wednesday, and it was FC Dallas and we weren’t gonna miss it. So we had our tailgate and all of our fans showed up to the tailgate. And we renewed our vows. Came in, got our pictures taken with everybody and had fun.” -- Samantha Bieghler, FC Dallas Season Ticket Member
"I fell in love with soccer watching my brother [Clark] play his freshman year at SMU. Watching all those games at old Ownby Stadium and smelling the Mrs. Baird’s plant with the fresh bread every night. And my love continued on.” -- Dan Hunt, FC Dallas President
"That comes from my father. I grew up in a Latin American home. I grew up in Miami, Florida with teammates from Columbia, Brazil, Argentina. I grew up in a very Latin team, youth team. My father was always pushing me to try to create and to attack. To pursue this game. Get me out of my comfort zone. That was my upbringing. And then I get recruited to SMU...and Shellas [Hyndman] just looked me in the eye and said we have a plan for you. We want you to come to Dallas. I bought in and I felt that. No regrets. No looking back. I love that I’m connected to this city for almost 20 years now. And I’m really honored to be at the professional level." -- Luchi Gonzalez, FC Dallas head coach
