By Mark Johnson

Haiti vs FC Dallas

The Haitian national team and FC Dallas will play an exhibition game at 7 p.m. Friday on Pizza Hut Park's Field 4. While there's no charge for admission, donations will be accepted to help rebuild the Haitian federation.

The group's headquarters collapsed during the Jan. 12 earthquake, 30 Fédération Hatienne de Football staff members.

Donations are also being accepted through the San Antonio Sports Foundation. The foundation is financing the Haitian team's stay in New Braunfels, Texas.

Today, the field that kept the Haitian players safe from harm is home to some of the half-million homeless in Haiti who are living in tents in the national soccer stadium. Last week, the team traveled to San Antonio to begin training for a May 5th game against the Argentine national team.

The team is spending two and a half weeks at the T Bar M Resort and Conference Center in New Braunfels and training at the local high school stadium.
