FC Dallas is an American professional soccer club based in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas which competes in Major League Soccer (MLS), the top professional soccer league in the United States of America and Canada. It is one of the ten charter clubs of MLS, having competed in the league since its inception, and was known as Dallas Burn prior to the 2005 season.

Dallas plays its home games at the 20,500 capacity soccer-specific Pizza Hut Park, where they have played since changing their name in 2005. The team is owned by MLS investor Clark Hunt, who also owns the Columbus Crew and the National Football League's Kansas City Chiefs. Dallas's current head coach is former Southern Methodist University coach Schellas Hyndman.

On April 14, 1996, the Dallas Burn defeated the San Jose Clash in a shootout win in front of a crowd of 27,779 fans at the Cotton Bowl. The Burn with Jason Kreis and coach Dave Dir, would become one of MLS's better teams as they used a midseason 5-game winning streak to earn their first playoff berth with a record of 17-15. In the playoffs, the Burn would be defeated by the Kansas City Wiz in three games. The Burn started the season with mixed results. Late in the season they used a 4-game winning streak to make the playoffs. They ended their season with a .500 record of 16-16. In the playoffs, the Burn defeated and swept the Los Angeles Galaxy without conceding a goal. But in the next round, they would be defeated by the Colorado Rapids. The Burn would win the US Open Cup by defeating the MLS Cup Champion D.C. United.
