Castillo is one of the brightest young players in Major League Soccer and is already FC Dallas’ 12th top scorer in history with 20 goals.
The 22-year-old midfielder contract with Dallas was set to expire at the end of the year and by signing a long-term deal, Castillo has committed his future to the club.

Castillo has been with Dallas for four seasons since joining from Colombian side Deportivo Cali and FC Dallas Technical Director Fernando Clavijo is excited to see what more he can bring to the team.
“We’re very excited to have secured the services of Fabian Castillo for the future. He is the future of this franchise. He is a player we have been able to help grow,” Clavijo said.
“We also believe he has yet to achieve his full potential. FC Dallas has a more mature and complete player in Fabian today than we did a few years ago, but each year he remains with FC Dallas, the better he will become.”
Castillo was named as FC Dallas’ Most Valuable Player at the end of the last campaign and he will be looking forward to getting started with the new season now.
