It is time to begin marking your 2018 calendars.

FC Dallas will host Real Salt Lake to open their 2018 MLS regular season on Saturday, March 3 at 7 pm.

Dallas is 11-4-7 in home openers all-time, including an unbeaten record since 2009 and a current six-match winning streak. FC Dallas is 13-1-2 all-time versus Salt Lake in DFW and 19-11-6 all-time in league matches. The two clubs met to open the 2007 season in Sandy, Utah, playing to a 2-2 draw. It will be the first season-opening meeting in Texas.

Last year, FC Dallas didn’t have their season opener at home until the third week of the season due to construction at Toyota Stadium.

The rest of the 2018 schedule along with TV dates will be announced in January according to the league’s website.

What do you make of next season’s first kick option? Happy it is a conference rival?
