Time: 7 p.m. CST

Although construction is set to begin and funds have been raised to build the field, Freddy Fund is still accepting donations to provide amenities for the field such as trees, bleachers/benches and shade structures, estimated at an additional $25,000.

One and a half years of effort put into the Freddy Fund has been shared throughout the Dallas and National soccer communities. A true memorial to the Dallas native and community soccer star, Freddy’s Field will provide a safe playing environment for children of the neighborhood where Freddy was born and raised while facilitating healthy, active lifestyles through the sport Freddy loved so much.

“I cannot believe this day is finally coming,” exclaimed Freddy Fund Project Manager Matt Moran. “We have raised money during the hardest economic climate which is a testament to the impact Freddy made on so many lives. We are still hoping to raise money to add other amenities, but regardless, I am excited that this vision is coming to reality and that the effort of so many will be rewarded with this memorial to Freddy.”
