The last time Dallas hosted a World Cup match was a quarterfinal match in 1994 at the Cotton Bowl. Dallas is also bidding for the International Broadcast Center at Fair Park, something Dallas had in 1994, as well as the central referee location. Toyota Stadium in Frisco, the Cotton Bowl, Fair Park, and Globe Life Field will be used as training areas for teams. Its still unknown how many matches will be held in the Metroplex but soccer fans all over Texas now have a reason to get super excited!

The Definitive Ranking of Texas Professional Sports Mascots

I am a Dallas fan for pretty much everything, except baseball. Sorry, grew up in Baltimore so the Orioles are my team. However, when it comes to my mascot list below, I am being 100% honest. I think my choices will honestly shock you.

Longview's Lake Lomond will Offer Family Fun, Hike & Bike Trails, Watersports and More!

New Partnership means Lake Lomond and the soon to be developed Echols Park will offer a beautiful lake setting, walking trails, watersport rentals, and maybe even lakefront business at some point!
