We’re finally back, after what has been a long hiatus. It helps that FC Dallas has finally loaned out some players we can actually track.
We’ll also keep you posted on any news surrounding the FC Dallas foreign affiliates. The coronavirus has impacted those affiliates in a very negative manner for the past year, but we’ll report what we can.
Thomas Roberts (SK Austria Klagenfurt - Austrian Bundesliga) - Roberts has been with his new team for several weeks now. The reason we’ve yet to see him in any action is that he’s been waiting to receive his Work Visa. It appears that the wait is over:
Thomas Roberts work visa was approved today. Expected to play his first game next week against Red Bull Salzburg and Brenden Aaronson. pic.twitter.com/CErwjkgn8h— 3rd Degree (@3rdDegreeNet) August 12, 2021
Dante Sealy (PSV Eindhoven - Eredivisie) - Dante has joined PSV Eindhoven (Netherlands top flight) on a two-year loan, with an option to buy. He will begin his time in the Netherlands with Jong PSV (Netherlands Division 2), the club's reserve team.
Jong PSV played their first match of the season today, but Dante was not in the 18.
FC Dallas Puerto Rico & FC Dallas Guaynabo - Puerto Rico has been hard hit by COVID, and this has greatly affected sporting events in a negative fashion in the past year. Things are finally starting to return back to normal as the academy teams for both affiliates are gearing up for the start of their seasons in all age groups.
There is still no word on when the dueling Pro Leagues in Puerto Rico will resume play.
FC Dallas MX - The start of the new Liga TDP season is fast approaching and FC Dallas MX is gearing up to rebound from their first round exit in the Promotion Playoffs. The core of last season's team has all aged out, so there will be plenty of new faces this season. There is no word on what reinforcements are being made, but the academy has strong teams in all age groups, and the club has held tryouts in the talent-rich area of Monterey.
