It's first vs second heading into the MLS weekend on Sunday night as FC Dallas hosts Sporting KC in the first of three matchups this season between the Western Conference rivals! Here are the ten things to know before heading to Toyota Stadium:
1) Sunday's match kicks off at 6:00PM and is presented by Hotels.com who just announced a partnership with FC Dallas as their first-ever sports team partner! Check out all the deals of the awesome new partnership including the all-new Captain's Quarters suite!
2) We're excited to have the FS1 crew in town tomorrow broadcasting the game nationally and FS1 sideline reporter Julie Stewart-Binks will be scarfing the Lamar Hunt Statue! Be on the north concourse around 5:30 to welcome her to Dallas.
3) Sunday's match is sold out and there will be a large private group in the north end of the Toyota Soccer Center and Toyota Stadium complex meaning there are some special procedures in place for this match including the closing of the north gate. Please make sure to read this before you head to the stadium to help with your ingress.
4) Check out the awesome #FCDvSKC match poster from Creative Coordinator Ashley McCaffrey! Get yours in the team store tomorrow, but get there early as these go fast!
5) This is one of the marquee MLS matchups of the early season as FC Dallas looks to extend their lead at the top of the Western Conference against a Sporting team that hasn't allowed a goal in two road games. Get all ready for the matchup with our Keys to the Match!
6) Maxi Urruti had perhaps his best game yet for FC Dallas on Wednesday in the road win at Portland, but not exactly why you'd expect.
7) Sporting Kansas City comes into this match in 2nd place in MLS and looking to rebound from a dissapointing result at home on Wednesday. Learn more about Sunday's opponents.
8) Sunday's match will be broadcast nationally at 6:00 on FS1, Fox Deportes and the Fox Sports Go app with John Strong and Alexi Lalas on the call. Tune to the radio broadcast on 100.7FM with Steve Davis or 1270AM with Carlos Alvarado and Rafa Calderon.
9) It's no secret that there is some significant rain being predicted for Sunday's match, but we'll just have to wait and see on that. As always follow us on social media for the most up-to-date updates on everything weather related.
10) As we mentioned, Sunday's match is sold out, but you can get your seats at the Flash Seats Resale Marketplace! See you at Toyota Stadium!
