Soccer, like love, is an international language—but unlike love, it doesn't end with a pesky lawsuit. Experience the fierce body language of the world's favorite sport with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a standing-room-only ticket (a $48 value) to FC Dallas's matchup against the Los Angeles Galaxy on Sunday, May 1 at 6 p.m. You also get a east-sideline ticket to the matchup against Real Salt Lake on Sunday, May 22 at 6 p.m. Both games take place under the bright, mozzarella-white lights of Pizza Hut Park in Frisco.
FC Dallas's strikers and ballers will take the pitch for electrifying passing, shooting, scoring, and celebrating on their home field. The visiting rivals from the west, the L.A. Galaxy, employ the likes of the United States’ all-time leading goal scorer Landon Donovan, former England national-team captain David Beckham, and ever-dangerous Colombian striker Juan Pablo Angel. Real Salt Lake sports a sporting lineup that includes leading forward Álvaro Saborío, veteran goalkeeper Nick Rimando, and two-time MLS All-Star Javier Morales, suited up and prepped to do their best to outwit, outrun, and outscore FC Dallas on their home pitch. Lend a voice to the heroes in red and white as they test their mettle and their ability to use their heads as torpedoes against star-studded foes.
The thrill of watching FC Dallas stars such as Brek Shea and David Ferreira dance and spin their way down a 100-yard minefield of slide tackles and tricky fleet feet can convert even the most stubborn fan of hand sports. Considered the world’s most popular sport and rapidly becoming America's most played sport in which all players receive a Capri Sun postgame, soccer is so significant because of its poetic simplicity: no hoops, pads, sticks, or T-shirt guns that blast out shaving cream.
