FC Dallas have announced an affiliation with USL PRO club Arizona United SC.
The MLS outfit have entered into a one-year partnership with the Scottsdale outfit who debuted in US Soccer's third tier in 2014.
The agreement will allow Dallas to send up and coming players on loan to Arizona United during the 2015 campaign which has delighted president of the Texan club, Dan Hunt.
"This agreement is a key step in fostering the development of our academy and reserve players," Hunt said in a team release.
"FC Dallas has one of the top academies in North America. We have signed the most players from our youth academy in league history. This initiative now allows FC Dallas to accelerate the improvement of those young players."
Arizona United already have a link with FC Dallas as they are coached by former defender Michael Dellorusso while their joint-leading scorer in their debut season, Jonathan Top, was a Homegrown Player on loan from FCD.
