Dallas Sidekicks Announce,
"We're Back!"

ALLEN, Texas — The Dallas Sidekicks announced "We're Back!" earlier this month, beginning play with a home game on Nov. 3 at Allen Event Center. Sidekick legend Tatu made the announcement as co-owner, general manager and head coach of the team.

"I am so excited to announce that we're back," Tatu said. "We have the most loyal and passionate fans, and they are going to be proud of the team we put on the field in November."

The team also announced that they will honor Tatu this season in three different ways:

  • A $9 walk-up ticket price to home games will be offered as a nod to legendary No. 9
  • Players who score during home games will throw an autographed No. 9 jersey into the stands.
  • The team will retire Tatu's No. 9 jersey at one of the first home games.

Founded in 1983, the Dallas Sidekicks won the Major Indoor Soccer League championship in 1987, 1993, 1998 and 2001, and ranked as one of the most iconic franchises in American soccer for two decades.

Along with Tatu, the new ownership team consists of long-time DFW sports executive Ronnie Davis, who is majority owner, President and CEO; former Sidekicks owner Sonny Williams; and former Sidekicks general manager Jim Tolbert, who will also serve as Vice President of Ticketing.

"The memories of all those fun nights at Reunion Arena come flooding back," says former Sidekicks head coach Gordon Jago. "I cannot wait to cheer the Sidekicks on once again."'

Season tickets are available now by calling (214) 550-6130, and individual game tickets went on sale May 7 at ticketmaster.com. The Sidekicks also announced that MetroPCS will sponsor the team's jerseys.
