Dallas Beer Guardians are committed to contributing to the atmosphere at Toyota Stadium in support of our beloved FC Dallas. As we support one of the founding members of Major League Soccer, we Dallas Beer Guardians stand committed to uphold the enduring values and traditions established by the League and the Dallas Burn. Those values include a commitment to winning, respect, tolerance, and an appreciation for the world’s game.  We look to the past example laid forth by our founder, Lamar Hunt, as an example of who we represent and who we honor each time we set foot in the stadium.  We remember that everything we do becomes part of the legacy of Uncle Lamar.
