The 2021 season is about to really begin to take shape here as FC Dallas players will report to the Toyota Soccer Center on Wednesday, March 3 to begin their preseason camp.
FC Dallas will hold an intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday, March 13 before hosting OKC Energy on Saturday, March 20 on AdvoCare Field 1 and Austin Bold FC on Wednesday, March 24 at Toyota Stadium. Any additional preseason matches will be communicated at a later date. (No word yet from the club on if those games will be livestreamed or not, once we hear word of that, we will let you know!)
Prior to FC Dallas’ voluntary training sessions beginning on March 3, players began reporting on Feb. 22 to begin a non-mandatory league-required seven-day quarantine period before player physicals. Players who completed their quarantine had the opportunity to participate in voluntary player workouts or group training sessions provided that each player had conducted medical exams and testing.
FC Dallas’ 2021 MLS SuperDraft picks Nicky Hernandez, Colin Shutler and Thibaut Jacquel will join the team for preseason training while Mark Salas and Giovanni Montesdeoca will continue to compete for University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill before reporting to the club in late May.
