After five-straight games on the road for FC Dallas, the team returns home for back-to-back matches including a rivalry match and fireworks celebration.
FCD will host Texas Derby-rival Houston Dynamo on Friday, June 26, presented by Novo Nordisk, and then celebrate the Fourth of July against the New England Revolution on Saturday, July 4th, presented by TXU Energy.
The Dynamo haven’t played in Frisco since March 2013 where FCD took a 3-2 win.

FCD can clinch El Capitán in front of an expected sell-out crowd, and it is sure to be a match you don’t want to miss!
Then eight days later, Toyota Stadium will be packed once again - this time it’s for a showdown with the 2014 MLS Cup-finalist New England Revolution. There’s no better way to spend the Fourth of July than with FC Dallas. This is the fourth straight year FCD has celebrated Independence Day with a home match followed by one of the biggest fireworks shows in the metroplex! Secure your tickets today and be a part of history with one of the largest-expected crowds in Toyota Stadium history.
