As we speculated a couple days ago, FC Dallas will be the first team to host MLS on NBC as the opening match of the 2012 MLS season for FCD will come at home vs New York Red Bulls on Sunday, March 11 at 2PM. The game will be broadcast by NBC Sports Network(formerly Versus) with Arlo White on the call.

The decision to have Pizza Hut Park host the first ever MLS on NBC game brought howls of derision from various twitterati, though they fail to remember that Dallas sold out last season's home opener against Chicago, a much less sexy side than New York.

The storylines in this one write themselves...Playoff rematch, return of David Ferreira, Thierry Henry vs Brek Shea, Henry vs Kevin Hartman, Rafael Marquez vs pre-game buffet.

Cant wait....
