Following FC Dallas’ win over Oklahoma City Energy FC last night, the draw for the Round of 16 has been completed by US Soccer today.

FC Dallas will remain at home in the tournament as they host the Colorado Rapids on June 29. The venue has not been announced but it would likely be at Toyota Stadium.

This also puts FCD at home for three straight games at the end of June with RSL coming to town on the June 25 and then the annual 4th of July match to kick of that month against Orlando City.

The winner of that game will move forward to the semifinal against the winner of the Houston Dynamo-Sporting Kansas City match. Unfortunately for FCD and Colorado, the winner will have to go on the road.

The winner of this region will get the West region winner, below is the full bracket:

What do you make of FCD’s chances in the next round? Or should this be a time where FCD throws out a very youthful squad and hopes for the best?
