This is the complete list of every player on the FC Dallas and North Texas Soccer Club rosters as well as every name connected or linked to the teams.

Notes

The extra international slot FC Dallas had from the Rapids in 2019 via Kellyn Acosta trade is gone.

But the one acquired from Atlanta in the Emerson Hyndman deal runs through 2020. So FC Dallas should have 9 total in 2020.
