The full preseason schedule may not be fully out for FC Dallas but one portion of it is set as FC Dallas will host German partners Bayern Munich’s U23 side on February 9 at 6pm.

Tickets are apparently already on sale as well for the event.

What do you all make of this friendly? Do you think there will be a chance to get a player on loan from Bayern this season?
