FC Dallas Set to Host a Few of MLS' New Kids on the Block, Including Nashville SC

FRISCO, Texas - With the league’s expansion comes plenty of new faces. In 2020, three of the league’s newer clubs visit Toyota Stadium. With the Pick Your Plan initiative, FC Dallas fans can watch the club take on Los Angeles FC, Nashville SC and Minnesota United FC.

Los Angeles FC – April 4, 2:30 p.m.

On Apr. 4, FC Dallas hosts LAFC at Toyota Stadium, presented by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Having played its first MLS game on March 4, 2018, Los Angeles FC has only played in two seasons, but electrified the league in both of them. In 2018, the club finished third place in the Western Conference and followed suit by winning the MLS Supporters’ Shield trophy in 2019.

Last season, FC Dallas played out a thrilling 1-1 draw at Toyota Stadium in this fixture and will hope to claim three crucial points in 2020.

Minnesota United FC – June 20, 7:30 p.m.

In the second match of this package, FC Dallas hosts Minnesota United, which finished fourth place in the Western Conference last season.

After beginning play in the 2017 season, Minnesota struggled, finishing ninth in 2017 and 10th in 2018. Last season, however, saw the side take a major step forward.

Although Darwin Quintero recently joined Houston Dynamo, do not expect Minnesota to be a push-over. This matchup will see the two sides contest for a valuable result.

Nashville SC – August 23, 7:30 p.m.

The new kid on the block, Nashville SC, makes its first trip to Frisco on Aug. 23, presented by UnitedHealthcare. In the third match of this package, FC Dallas will take on Dominique Badji, who was traded last December.

Expansion sides are never easy to play against, especially during their inaugural campaign. Three crucial points will be up for grabs before the final sprint of 2020.
