Consistent start times - Due to the new streaming agreement with Apple, the start times for games across the entire season is very consistent, with most games starting around the 7 or 8pm hour during the season. Dallas has 24 matches on Saturday in 2023, with 14 of those at Toyota Stadium. FCD will play six matches on Wednesday, three on Sunday and one on Tuesday.
Block off the summer for the Leagues Cup - FC Dallas will pause MLS play from July 21 to August 19. More details on who FCD will play/host in the Leagues Cup will be announced later.
Copa Tejas - Dallas plays Austin FC three times in 2023, whereas they’ll play Houston twice. Two of the games against Austin will be at Q2 Stadium, so Copa Tejas will certainly run through Austin this season.
Limited games against Eastern Conference teams - Due to the larger footprint of the league, games against cross-conference rivals are becoming more limited as we go along here. Dallas will play at Miami, New York City FC, and Philadelphia. They’ll host Columbus, Nashville, D.C. United and Atlanta United.
International windows - MLS will pause during the October and November FIFA international windows.
St. Louis joins Western Conference - With the addition of St. Louis CITY SC to the Western Conference, there are now 29 MLS teams. Nashville SC will rejoin the Eastern Conference bringing the total of Eastern Conference teams to 15 and Western Conference teams to 14.
