History

The team was founded as the Dallas Burn in 1996 the inaugural year of Major League Soccer. From 1996-2002 the team played in the Cotton Bowl. In an effort to save money due to the club's unfavorable lease with the Cotton Bowl, the club played its 2003 home games at Dragon Stadium, a high school stadium in Southlake, a Fort Worth suburb. After listening to its fans, the Dallas Burn, as the team was called from 1996-2004, moved back to the Cotton Bowl for the 2004 season. Another factor to the move was the money that the club was losing due to the fact that there could be no alcohol sales at a public high school.

In 2005, the San Jose Earthquakes were put on hold and the team was relocated to Houston, sparking an intra-state rivalry with the new Houston club. The two teams play for El Capitan, a cannon that goes to the regular season victor. Recently, animosity has grown between fans and players of FC Dallas and the Colorado Rapids, mainly sparking from Colorado players' comments towards the fans[2] and Colorado's victories over FC Dallas in the post season.
