The 2021 MLS regular-season schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
According to FC Dallas, the start of the 2021 MLS regular season will be the latest start to an MLS regular season in club history, surpassing the club’s 1996 season opener which was on April 14th of that year. It will also be the eighth time in franchise history that FC Dallas will start the season in April and the first time since the 2007 season.
