Some interesting notes to dive into here:
Balanced start. FC Dallas has historically started with a lot of home games, but this year they’re going to be more balanced. Basically after starting with three games in the first four weeks, Dallas will rotate frequently between home and away. Dallas’ longest home stretch is two games.
Away to end. FCD will end the season with three of their final five away from home, with trips to Chicago, Seattle and Colorado before ending the season at home against Sporting Kansas City. This will put more pressure on Dallas to take care of business early and at home, otherwise they’re going to be chasing during a difficult stretch.
LAFC back to back. Dallas will have a fun stretch of playing LAFC twice in four days, first on Thursday May 16th at LAFC, then again at home on Sunday May 19th.
Early to start. Just an interesting thing to point out that Dallas’ first four games kick off no later than 3:30pm CT. Their first night game isn’t until March 30th.
No visit to Cincinnati. Dallas will host FC Cincinnati instead, so look to make your travel plans to Ohio in 2020. But this will be Victor Ulloa’s potential first time back to Frisco wearing a different jersey.
