2020 FC Dallas schedule released

Here is the complete schedule for the 2020 FC Dallas MLS Regular Season along with some notes and points of interest. The season kicks off with a home opener against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, February 29 at 5PM CT.

Notes and Points of Interest

The annual July 4th game is against San Jose Earthquakes at 7 pm CT.

FCD plays every Western Conference team twice and 10 of the Eastern teams once. FCD does not face Atlanta United, New England Revolution, or Toronto FC in 2020

28 matches on Saturday
3 on Sunday
2 on Wednesday
1 on Thursday (@ Houston during rivalry week)

Home / Road by Month
Feb – 1 home
Mar – 1 home / 2 road
Apr – 1 home / 3 road
May – 3 home / 2 away
June – 2 home / 3 away
July – 3 home / 2 away
Aug – 3 home / 3 away
Sept – 3 home / 1 away
Oct – 1 away

The three home games in September make for a good finish ratio for FCD.

While August seems really loaded, it’s actually just a trick of the calendar as there’s only one midweek game of the 6. There just ended up being 5 Saturdays in the month.

There’s a Friday / Sunday set in September against LAFC and Seattle. That’s not a very nice combo. The Thursday / Sunday in August against Houston and Nashville is, comparatively, a lot easier with poorer teams and a larger gap.

FCD’s first US Open Cup game will be between April 21-23. I inserted the first Cup game below. You can find the rest here. If FCD advances, June gets really busy as there could be two Cup games inserted into the 5 games on the plate creating 3 straight weeks with a Wednesday game.

  1. absolutely stupid to have a Texas team with 2 games at home in March and April then 6 in July and August. I guess a team like Minnesota would be front loaded at home so every team gets the absolutely worst weather.
