FC Dallas has defied all odds to win Western Conference
They weren’t supposed to be here.
In a league where the big name stars dominate the headlines, where Los Angeles, Seattle, New York and Toronto garner all of the attention, a team with no stars and no massive payroll isn’t supposed to take possession of the No. 1 seed in the toughest conference, let alone come this close to grabbing the Supporters’ Shield — the award for finishing first in the league in the regular season.
But here FC Dallas sits. With one match left to go in the season, the Hoops have clinched the top seed in the Western Conference, a feat that seemed impossible at the start of the season.
