About FC Dallas
FC Dallas, originally known as the Dallas Burn, became a chartered-member club of Major League Soccer on June 6, 1995. The team’s original logo was a fire-breathing horse, and the original colors were red and black. On April 14,1996, Dallas played its first MLS game. In the fall of 2002, Lamar Hunt took the operating rights from the league. The growth and success of youth soccer is directly related to Mr. Hunt’s support and contribution to the sport of soccer. At the conclusion of the 2004 season, the team changed its name to FC Dallas, as well as changed their logo and colors. The current logo features the name FC Dallas, the number 96 (representing the year the club played its inaugural game), and an image of a bull. The current colors include red, white, and blue. On August 6, 2005, FC Dallas moved its new stadium at it's new home in Frisco, Texas.
