“We are pleased to affiliate with FC Dallas,” said Energy FC co-owner Bob Funk Jr. “As a founding member of MLS, FC Dallas has proven to be innovative in their approach to business and to growing the sport of soccer under a single banner in their community. In addition to learning from their business department, our on-field product can improve with the quality players that FC Dallas will offer to our organization.”
“Every time you have the opportunity to surround yourself with good people and a good franchise, it’s always a plus,” FC Dallas Technical Director Fernando Clavijo said. “We were looking at opportunities early on in the year to keep doing better and find solutions to problems you have. Finding the partnership with Oklahoma City Energy FC was a big plus for us. Being able to drive is a plus…only three hours away. But I saw the quality of the individuals, the quality of the franchise helped us make the decision.”
FC Dallas is one of the charter members of MLS, playing in the league since its inception in 1996. Last season, FC Dallas finished with the best record in the Western Conference of MLS and reached the Conference Finals
