FCD takes the pitch tonight against Orlando City. The OC website has a preview of the game and asks a question I never thought I'd see - can David Ferreira hold up against their squad's back line.
FCD beat Orlando twice last year - once in the same Disney tournament and again in U.S. Open Cup.
Tonight's game gets going at 7 p.m. CT and will be streamed live on MLSSoccer.com's live Channel 2.
The first chance to check out the 2012 FC Dallas kit will be at a pop-up shop that opens this Thursday. The shop will be located at a fun Dallas location (nope, we aren't telling you where and when yet) and will have the new jersey, scarf, t-shirt and hat for sale. This will be a chance to mingle with fellow FCD fans and be the first to see and purchase the new jersey. The pop-up shop will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
