    Once known as Pizza Hut Park, FC Dallas Stadium is getting a new name -- Toyota Stadium.

    FC Dallas announced a new naming-rights sponsor for its suburban Dallas home stadium on Tuesday afternoon.

    Officials of the Major League Soccer franchise scheduled a news conference to reveal the sponsor that bought the right to name the former FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco.



    Officials did not disclose the terms of the multi-year deal, but did say it will allow for the franchise to do some needed stadium improvements.

    That's 1½ years after the expiration of the team's original naming-rights deal with Plano, Texas-based Pizza Hut. The stadium opened in 2005 as Pizza Hut Park.
