FC Dallas U19s and U17s head to Guadalajara for games

It’s once again time for the annual FC Dallas U19 and U17 trip to Guadalajara, Mexico.  Both teams will be playing a series of games and scrimmages.  The two FCD teams leave tomorrow (Saturday, January 17) and return a week later. FCD will be facing both Chivas and Atlas as well as some other local sides.

This is one of the extra trips that falls outside the scheduled Academy budget and the kids (or families) pay for themselves. So the rosters aren’t at 100%.

Here are the travel squads for both age brackets with jersey numbers and a couple of notes.
