Five Can't Miss FC Dallas Games In 2014

New, 3 comments

All games are big but here are five we circled right away.

USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday we broke down the schedule, today we'll give you a few games we've circled on our calendars for 2014. FC Dallas is still very early into their offseason weeks right now and have yet to announce any player moves. Still, it is worth looking ahead to see what we have in our future right?

Montreal Impact (March 8, 7pm)

First Kick is always a must for any soccer fan. Dallas will once again open things up at home this year. Getting a playoff team in Montreal out of the gate is never easy. Montreal has a ton of quality players and a few of their big names like Marco Di Vaio isn't getting any younger. This could very well be a fun and fluid opening game.

Houston Dynamo (April 5, TBD)

When we get a new schedule each season the first thing we always do is circle the Houston game. There really isn't any need to hype this game as FC Dallas looks to defend the cannon this coming season. This year the lone regular season meeting will take place at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.

Philadelphia Union (July 4, 8pm)

The second game I typically look at when getting the new schedule is seeing who the club will face on Independence Day. This year, we'll host a pretty fitting ID4 game against the Union. Nothing more 'Merican than a team like the Union coming to town for the holiday matchup.

LA Galaxy (Oct 12, 6pm)

The lone visit from the Galaxy should be an interesting one. Landon Donovan will be coming off a World Cup, and who knows what kind of Galaxy team this will be in 2014. Not to mention the fact that this could be a game that determines whether or not FC Dallas is in the playoffs or not too.

Portland Timbers (Oct 25, 7:30pm)

Last home game of the year should be a good one too. I'm pretty happy to see that Dallas gets a home game to close out the season, unlike the last couple of years. Hopefully the team will already know their place in the playoffs by then.
