FC Dallas And Major League Soccer To Celebrate Soccer For All Week May 12-23

FRISCO, TX (May 12, 2022) – FC Dallas and Major League Soccer announced today the launch of Soccer For All Week (May 12-23). The League-wide initiative reinforces the collective commitment to drive positive social change, foster more inclusive and equitable communities, and support an end to discrimination. Introduced in 2018 through MLS WORKS, the League’s social responsibility platform, Soccer For All signifies that everyone is welcome.

FC Dallas wants to kick off Soccer For All Week when it announces the signing of 15 Special Olympics Texas Athletes and Partners to a two-year FC Dallas Unified Team contract. The FC Dallas Unified Team, with support from the FC Dallas Foundation, Globe Life, Gallagher and Toyota, provides training, competitions and social experiences for individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to create a unified soccer experience. After a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program is back with a bang for 2022 as the FC Dallas Unified Team will face both Texas rivals during the regular season.

FC Dallas and other MLS clubs conduct year-long initiatives that provide inclusive opportunities in-stadium and for members of the local community including, mini-pitch installs, youth soccer programming, equipment donations, first-team experiences for individuals with and without intellectual and physical disabilities and sensory rooms in addition to amplifying a variety of commemorative awareness months and moments including Black History Month, Juneteenth, Women’s History Month, Asian & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, LGBTQ+ Pride Month, and Hispanic Heritage Month.
