Welcome to the second annual 2015 Budweiser Draught Draft! Here's how it works: we have eight road matches selected for our 2015 Party at the Pubs watch party series presented by Budweiser and eight worthy pub partners ready to host our #DTID fans.  

Rather than randomly assign matches to our Pub Partners, we're going to let them choose their respective matches. But how do we decide who gets the first pick? Easy, we don't; that's where you come in!

Just cast your vote for your favorite Pub Partner in the poll to the right. When voting ends on Thursday (12pm CT), the pub with the most votes gets to make the first pick in the 2015 Budweiser Draught Draft. The pub with the second most votes gets the second pick, and so on and so forth.

So pick your pub and let us know who you think should get the top spot in our 2015 Party at the Pubs watch party series presented by Budweiser!

Both Blas Perez and Mauro Diaz were featured in the MLS's top ten plays of the night, following FC Dallas' 1-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes on opening night at Toyota Stadium.

Perez came in seventh with his 92nd minute game-winning goal. And Diaz' flick to Perez, while blanketed by defenders, was good enough for a second place finish on the list.
