FC Dallas to face Memphis in first scrimmage of 2013 preseason

By Mark Norris

 

FRISCO – FC Dallas will have its first scrimmage of the 2013 preseason this Saturday at 10 a.m. against the University of Memphis.

Head coach Schellas Hyndman said the club always gets requests from college programs to scrimmage, and FCD was able to work out a time to play Memphis this weekend.

“Memphis has been one of those teams that have worked hard with us in the past,” Hyndman said after training on Monday.

FC Dallas defeated Memphis 6-0 in a 2012 preseason scrimmage.

Hyndman said he looks forward to seeing FCD playing 11 vs 11 after two weeks of training sessions.

Hyndman currently plans to play an approximate Starting XI in the first half and get time for remaining players in the second half.

Fans are welcome to watch the scrimmage for free. It will be on the adidas Field and fans will be able to watch from outside the field fence.
