The English Premier League's Aston Villa arrived in Frisco on Saturday morning to mark the beginning of their 2014 Texas Tour. The team attended the FCD vs. New England match in Frisco Saturday night to try and get a little scouting in before they face off against FC Dallas on Wednesday night.

Aston Villa trained for the first time in Frisco on Sunday for only a light training session and later that night former Aston Villa player who traveled with the team, Lee Hendrie, made a visit to the authentic Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse in Dallas. He gave the restaurant a jersey and team pennant.

Monday saw a more intense, fast paced training session inside the stadium in order to get them ready for the heat they will face in their two upcoming games in Texas. After training, Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey, an avid Aston Villa fan, gave the team a visit on location in Frisco.

Today, the team took a tour of the Cowboys stadium ahead of tonight's open training session at Toyota Stadium in preparation for the 8pm kickoff Wednesday night.

The World Cup might be over, but for FC Dallas and fans, the next 30 days are going to be action packed and filled with soccer. The next month sees FCD hit the field for six crucial games with four of those taking place right here at Toyota Stadium. To get you all set for the busy month of summer soccer, here's a rundown of what awaits FCD:

Saturday, July 19 vs New England pres. by Albertsons Market - 8:00PM Toyota Stadium

After ten days without a match, FCD returns to the Toyota Stadium field versus New England at home this Saturday on July 19th at 8:00pm pres. by Albertsons Market. The Revolution are in current playoff standings in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. FCD is currently in fourth in the Western Conference only one and two points behind third and second place, respectively, so a win and three points would be a huge boost in the standings for the team.

Wednesday, July 23 vs Aston Villa pres. by MoneyGram - 8:00PM Toyota Stadium

A few days after that, FCD is back at Toyota Stadium for their second-ever EPL friendly, this time against Brad Guzan and Aston Villa on July 23rd pres. by Moneygram. Not only is this game a great chance to see an EPL team up close, but it's a vital chance for some of our reserve players to make a name for themself in front of a big crowd and push for first-team minutes, since the game is strictly for bragging rights.

Sunday, July 27 at Vancouver Whitecaps - 4:00PM BC Place

To cap the three-match week, FCD takes on Vancouver away on the 27th at BC Place north of the border. The Whitecaps are just one point behind us in the standings currently and are in direct competition with FC Dallas for a Western Conference playoff spot, so this one is a biggie and the first of three matches FCD and Vancouver will play over the next three months. There will be an FC Dallas Party at the Pubs watch party for this game at Brickhouse Tavern + Tap where prizes and merchandise will be given away, so you'll want to make plans to join your #DTID faithful to watch this one on Sunday afternoon.

Sunday, August 3 at Chivas USA - 9:00PM StubHub Center

The two-game road swing wraps up for FCD to kick the month of August off, as FCD takes on Chivas USA in LA. Chivas has been playing well lately as they are currently on a four-game MLS win streak. They are only 3 points behind FCD in the rankings and with two games before ours and momentum on their side, they could easily climb the standings and give FCD a tough match. Last time the two teams met the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

Saturday, August 9 vs Colorado Rapids pres. by Raytheon - 8:00PM Toyota Stadium

On August 9th, Colorado travels to Toyota Stadium looking to get revenge from the last time these two teams met back in June when FCD took the win from them at home. Colorado stands in third place currently in the west, one place ahead of Dallas and this match will be the second of three meetings between the clubs in 2014. With FCD and Colorado just one point apart in the standings, this will be another huge Western Conference matchup.

Tuesday, August 12 vs Philadelphia Union - 8:00PM Toyota Stadium

FCD closes out the busy 30 days with arguably the biggest match as FC Dallas and Toyota Stadium will be hosting the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup semi-final game against the Philadelphia Union. FCD just recently played the Union winning 2-1 on July 4th and this will be FCD's first semifinal appearance since 2011. This match will be the latest round LHUSOC match at Toyota Stadium since hosting the final in 2007 and the winner will move on to play either Seattle Sounders FC or Chicago Fire in the Final.

Buckle up, it's about to get very busy around here!
