Meridian GYP: The Beautiful Game - A Night with FC Dallas
FC Dallas vs. Chicago Fire

Event Details

6:00 PM Talk - Luiz Muzzi, Director of Soccer Operations & Assistant Technical Director at FC Dallas
7:00 PM FC Dallas vs. Chicago Fire
Toyota Stadium

Ronaldo, Messi, and Neymar may get the headlines, but soccer isn’t just about the global superstars who will face off at the World Cup this summer. Its true heart lies with the hundreds of millions of ordinary people around the world who play, often with little more than a makeshift ball and a passion for the beautiful game. From the streets of Johannesburg to the trim pitches in Barcelona to the favelas of Rio, perhaps nothing brings people together like soccer – or fútbol, depending on who you ask.

Join us as we embrace World Cup Fever – right here in Dallas! Luiz Muzzi, Director of Soccer Operations and Assistant Technical Director at FC Dallas, will meet with Meridians to discuss how North Texas connects with the world through sport. Then, kick back and cheer on the team as they face off against Chicago Fire. What better way to spend a summer evening? Tickets include one free drink, free parking, and a group photo-op on the field after the game! Tickets are limited to Meridian members and a guest for only $10 each and space is limited to the first 15 people to register online – so take your shot NOW! GOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!
