Some interesting notes to dive into here:

All those home games. Those first three months of the season are going to be either a boost or a waste given how many home games the club has. FCD won’t hit the road until the sixth week of the season.

Hall of Fame weekend. We all know the HOF opens on October 21 and FCD will somehow play SKC.

New faces and places. FCD will get to see two new venues in MLS this season as they go to DC and LA for games.

Later Houston games. The last couple of years we’ve seen FCD battle Houston either too early in the season or too close together. I think this year’s schedule at least spaces those Rivalry Weekend matches out enough that the hype can actually be built up.

Gone for summer. The road will be a familiar place for FCD this summer as they’re only in town for a few games. At least they don’t have to do a two week west coast trip until late September.
