“Over the past five years, the Dallas Park and Recreation Department has had a great partner in FC Dallas, which has brought tournaments on a national and international level to Dallas,” said Willis Winters, Director of Dallas Park and Recreation Department. “Under FC Dallas’ management, the Elm Fork Athletic Complex has become a destination for teams in Texas and the nation. Furthering this partnership will bring continued benefits.”
