FC Dallas will host Liga MX’s Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente, also known as Xolos, in an international friendly on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at Toyota Stadium at 6:30PM presented by Toyota.

The Xolos reached the LIGA MX Clausura quarterfinals in head coach Oscar Pareja’s first season.

This will be the first meeting ever between FC Dallas and Club Tijuana and the second friendly for FCD this summer. FC Dallas will host La Liga’s Sevilla FC in the 2019 FC Dallas Summer Classic presented by Toyota on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. Dallas has played friendlies against legendary international soccer giants like Inter Milan (2010) and Stoke City (2013).

Oscar Pareja was named head coach for Tijuana on November 27, 2018 after mutually parting ways with FC Dallas on November 16. He served as FC Dallas’ head coach for five seasons recording a 78-49-43 record and guiding the team to the 2016 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and the 2016 Supporters’ Shield.
